We are a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business and Naval Veterans with over 30 years’ experience in leading and supporting a breadth of Naval Operations from Shipboard Operations to Special Operations.
As many ideas often do, ours blossomed in a bar, having drinks and talking about the good old days of our Naval service. We had been discussing some of the problems and issues we have seen along the way and at one point, we started discussing the Navy's ability to divert liquid HAZMAT during a major leak. I know, I know... it is an odd topic of discussion in a bar, but hey, whiskey is good.
This is when we discovered that we had a solution to this problem and started on our path to taking our idea to patent and providing this solution to the Navy and to the World.
