about us


Certerian is a subsidiary of the  Arolen Group (1990), incorporated in 2008 to serve different military and civilian markets with high-tech solutions, through its two different business units:  Certerian Defense & Alert (Military & Defense) and Certerian-EWS (Early Warning Systems).


Current Defense & Alert customers are mainly - but not exclusively - users in the military, defense, police, security and civil defense areas; as example, in Colombia the Army, the Air Force, the Navy, the National Police, the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces Joint Command are large Certerian’s clients since many years ago. The company also has military customers in some other countries.


Users of Early Warning Systems commonly are risk management agencies (local, regional, national and several international), environmental authorities, and large industries including production plants, infrastructure, oil, gas, mining, energy, public works, ports and airports, just to mention a few.


The combination of business units, products, solutions and services, plus the experience of a highly skilled human group (including former high-rank military officers), is a guarantee of success for any developed project regardless its size or complexity.


Certerian is a company widely recognized for having introduced innovative and totally disruptive technologies to different countries in the region, which have become true referrals in the vertical markets in which the company operates.

This business philosophy has been developed taking into account employees, collaborators, partners and managers, and has contributed decisively to build the excellent reputation of all its companies as serious, responsible and transparent suppliers in all their business and commercial practices, as well as in comprehensive care (administrative, technical, logistics, support, etc.) of each and every one of its customers and end users, regardless of their size or the dimension of the provided solution.
