RJE International, Inc., was founded in 1991 by Robert Jechart in a spare bedroom in his house. Robert’s goal was to supply high-tech mission critical products to military, commercial and scientific communities worldwide.
Robert’s business model was unconventional at first. He teamed up with engineering-focused companies to design and manufacture underwater products according to each client’s specifications and RJE’s standards. After testing and approving the first product, RJE would place a substantial order for the first year’s sales requirements to grow the product line. This plan succeeded — so well, in fact, that RJE was named to Inc. Magazine’s list of 500 fastest growing companies six years after the company’s inception.
RJE cemented its reputation by supplying state-of-the-art sonar relocation and tracking systems to the Military Special Ops community, as well as diver navigation and sonar systems. RJE’s relationship with Special Forces and military diving spans decades of products and development. We’re the largest supplier of military combat swim boards for subsea navigation and diver operated sonars for mine clearance in the world.
Today, RJE is the world’s leading supplier of advanced diver sonar and navigation equipment. Our customers include the US Navy, Army, Air Force and all major branches of the U.S. Government, as well as most major foreign governments and commercial customers in over 50 countries worldwide.
