SAMS Shark Safe Visual Technology

Radiator is a licensee of SAMS Technology™ and we now supply shark deterrent wetsuits for dive and surf, along with surfboard stickers to reduce the chance of shark attack.

Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) worked with a team of respected shark researchers to determine how large predatory sharks see.  

The team has made a number of significant scientific discoveries relating to shark sensory systems.  

Although sharks use a number of senses to locate prey, vision is the crucial sense in the final stage of an attack. By disrupting a shark's visual perception, an attack can either be diverted altogether or at least delayed to allow time to exit the water.

The technology includes two design strategies:

Elude: design to hide the wearer or object in the water column from the perspective of a predatory shark.

Diverter:
breaks up the silhouette of the wearer or object to present the object as unlike normal shark prey, such as a seal.

SAMS science is sound, testing is in its early stages but is ongoing. We invite ocean users to inform themselves and make a choice to use SAMS Technology but there are no guarantees. Visit SAMS Website, read Caution to Users or visit SAMS FAQs.
