History Founder

The maritime security business did not exist to the level of granularity achieved in the past 15 years. The genesis of our IEEE award winning CATE™ technology was 9/11 and we were recognized as far back as 2006 for corporate innovation. IEEE 036 Channel Logistics, LLC was conceptualized and formed in 2001 by Capt. Jatin S. Bains for achieving Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA). Our team had substantial legacy experience in and understood all the nuances of the maritime domain that make “Shipping” a potential catalyst to pose asymmetric threats. The company started to develop and implement MDA technologies in the United States and Asia shortly thereafter. MDA processes were consistently improved with operational input from key stakeholders that included Government, Law Enforcement, Academia, Regulatory and Commercial Maritime industry. The company participated in numerous Pilot deployments, Internal Research & Development projects with various stakeholders. Rapid prototyping, continued development and lessons learnt in the years since 2001 strongly contributed towards the cutting edge capabilities being offered today. The company regularly exchanges ideas with industry to improve Maritime Security thru regular presentations at maritime security conferences, leadership level briefings, Tabletop exercises, Publishing white papers, demonstrations to the user community, Integration with complementary technology products from other prime contractors. The company has a history of teaming with industry leaders such as Lloyds Register-Fairplay (Official Managers for the International Maritime Organization) to offer holistic maritime supply chain security solutions. Leading into 2016 our 3rd generation ‘CATE – Risk Modeling’ capability is readily available on the cloud at http://www.CATEtech.com
