SATPOS initially worked with satellite positioning, but in 2020 the company took a new turn and is now exploring two directions. One is a positioning system for geological surveys within marine seismic. The other is the kelp industry. Satpos was founded by the siblings John-Harry R.Edvardsen and Eva Helen Rognskog, and is located on the 3rd floor of Forskningsparken. The general manager is Knut Skumsvoll.
