About Us

VisSim was founded by the idea that there is more information available than what meets the eye. For more than 20 years the VisSim organisation has developed leading edge tracking technology and radar image processing techniques. Two pioneers with extensive experience in multimedia, combined with years of experience in radar detection and tracking, Mr Finn Fjellheim and Mr Per G. Bruaroy, formed the company in 1988. Soon the first advanced solution for a new generation of radar extractor and trackers was developed.

The organisation has been committed to customer needs from the beginning. By combining maritime operational experience and software programming competence VisSim became an innovative software company, developing leading edge solutions for maritime surveillance.

Deep understanding of maritime technology and the information from all sensors and sources is vital, but analysing and transforming this information in a professional maritime management system, is what brings the real value to our customers
