Active Research aims to do what we love, love what we do, challenge the ordinary and over deliver on our promises.


Active Research is a leading product development company, with more than 20 years of specialist experience in the design of DSP software and hardware in the field of smart sensors, depth sounding, sonar systems and underwater acoustics.

Founded by Managing Director, Phil Whitehurst in 1997, Active Research has become renowned for its innovative and reliable marine electronics. As a leading consultant for other major marine companies, Phil and his team have been instrumental in bringing new products to the leisure marine market, showcasing the company’s design expertise.

With a growing number of successful designs completed, Phil recognised that the skills developed gave the company the credentials to become a manufacturer of marine electronics, so the Actisense® brand was introduced in 2001 to promote the company’s range of marine interconnection devices.   

The Actisense range includes products that have been created to solve problems with installation and interconnection of different manufacturer’s equipment.  With a reputation as ‘The NMEA Specialists’ Actisense award winning products are the first choice for installers and boat builders who want complete peace of mind.
