Fascinated by orienteering and developed in the 20th century in Scandinavia, the founders of SPORTident decided in the 90s to revolutionise the sport with new technical equipment.
The idea to develop a new timing and identification system was born.
The SPORTident system was developed in the middle of Germany in Thuringia (Arnstadt), where the company’s head office is located. The employees of the AES GmbH (Electronics Engineering Systems) combined their experiences with user-friendly technical know-how, making the SPORTident system a unique product. The most important aspects of an electronic timing and identification system have been considered, making this brilliant system a successful product worldwide.
Today, SPORTident is used in multifaceted sports and is subject to continuous improvement. The aim of SPORTident is to enhance the usability, modernity and quality of the product. The benefit for organisers and athletes using the SPORTident system is constantly growing. With the SPORTident system, the effort for organisers in preparing, executing and evaluating an event is minimal.
SPORTident supports events all over the world like:
O-Ringen, the world’s biggest Orienteering-Event over several days in Sweden since 2000
the world championship in orienteering since 2003
the Sola-Stafetta in Zurich (Switzerland) since 2003
the World Championship in Mountainbike-Orienteering since 2005
SPORTident is not just present in championships, it is also used in training or healthcare activities like Nordic-Walking or hiking.
