About us

Our Story

In early 2016 Arctic Systems was founded in Denmark by pest control expert Rune Barslund and product developer Alistair Morton, with a vision for a poison free rodent control system.  Moreover, the system should be effective and easy to use. Since then, Arctic System’s focus is to build the best user focused smart city platform for industries to monitoring their own rodent activities in and around their own sites.

During the last years, our RATMO® project has taken us to the USA, Middle East, Africa and Northern Europe, where we have been testing under extreme conditions, including live tests from +50 to -22 ° C.

Back in the lab, our devices are tested with up to 3000 empty snaps to stress the electronics and plastic parts to the limit.

Furthermore, a military drop test has been done with 28 drops from 1.2m on a hard surface, on all corners, edges and sides, and the units passed these tests without any problems.
