Based in Portsmouth, Daniamant Ltd is a proud manufacturer of Survivor Location Lights for the marine, military, civil and aviation markets. The company’s products are used if a disaster happens at sea – so when all else fails, they have to work.

An innovative alternative to the pyrotechnic red hand flare, the ODEO Distress Flare reduces the risk of potential burns or damage to a user or liferaft. It uses LED technology to display a red flicker for distress while also displaying the internationally recognised ‘SOS’ signal. In addition, it has built in Infra-Red for search and rescue at night using NVG, and lasts for nine hours instead of 60 seconds, giving the survivor(s) their best chances of being seen over a prolonged period. Furthermore, the product saves on transport costs and has none of the environmental disposal issues associated with pyrotechnics.

ODEO was the first electronic flare in the market and is now influencing new legislation and regulations worldwide. As well as being committed to developing high quality, innovative products, Daniamant is continually expanding into new markets, selling to more than 60 countries worldwide through a network of carefully selected distributors.

CEO Kevin Rough comments: “This award endorses Daniamant’s continued commitment to quality and innovation, giving our customers the confidence to build long-term relationships. It is important that the skills and quality in UK manufacturing gets the recognition it deserves, and these awards help demonstrate the ambition, creativity and innovation that’s evident across all of British manufacturing. This is a unique product in that sometimes you need to push technology to drive innovation and drive new regulation; this product is both an evolution in technology but a revolution in the application to solve an existing problem. I am extremely proud of my team in how this product has been designed, developed and brought to market worldwide.”
