The MetOcean Telematics head office is located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. The proximity of our facility to the ocean is of prime importance to our plant. Both the Bedford Basin at the head of Halifax Harbour, and the nearby open ocean provide a test facility no lab or test tank can duplicate. MetOcean’s facilities have recently expanded to occupy a facility of over 40,000 sq. ft. of space that is divided into offices, labs, prototyping facilities, electronics assembly/storage and mechanical assembly. Approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of our space is strictly dedicated for use as manufacturing space.

ISO 9001 Quality Management System

MetOcean Telematics has a strong commitment from our entire staff with regards to quality assurance. This has resulted in our certification as an ISO 9001 registered company. We are one of the few manufacturers of oceanographic, meteorological and military systems in the world to have received this internationally recognized quality registration.

MetOcean Telematics is the result of a longstanding natural partnership between MetOcean Data Systems and JouBeh Technologies. Each organization was well established and shared considerable global reach, with the resulting MetOcean Telematics combining the strengths of both to better serve customers and further grow its international presence.

MetOcean Data Systems (‘MetOcean’) was first incorporated in 1984 and grew to be known as a world leader in integrated systems used for real-time environmental monitoring. JouBeh Technologies (‘JouBeh’), established in 2008, was a leading global Iridium satellite reseller that spanned the globe with unmatched service and support.
