Fascinated by orienteering which was developed in the 20th century in Scandinavia, the founders of SPORTident decided to revolutionise the sport with new technical equipment. To support that sport, 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 simplified.

At the beginning there was the idea to offer innovative products for the orienteering sport. So our experts had developed a new electronic punching system, which became the most successful timing equipment for orienteering worldwide. The next step was to provide a contactless timing system and now we want to go one step further and integrate a new GPS system. Therefore, we already got governmental subventions and subventions from European Union.
