Extending Survivability since 1978…
Protective solutions invented by Jeremiah Sullivan™ have been extending survivability in hazardous environments for decades. Applications for his unique problem solving skills include the DOD, Public Safety, Industrial and Action Sports Industries where he and his team have established an entirely new threshold for advanced protective solutions.
In the late 1970's, marine biologist Jeremiah Sullivan developed a flexible suit of armor for divers to wear while working around sharks. The suit has often been referred to as the Metal Mesh Shark Suit, Chain Mail Anti-Shark Suit, Steel Mesh Shark Suit, Neptunic Sharksuit etc. The technology Sullivan developed and continues to advance is known around the world and has been instrumental in the development of the global shark diving industry. Jeremiah Sullivan's pioneering work with the anti-bite technology has become the world standard among those who must work under hazardous circumstances with sharks in the open sea. He or his technologies have participated in over 100 television and film projects, as well as museum and technology exhibits including the Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Vitra Design Museum in Essen, Germany. An individual of diverse interests, Jeremiah has always maintained parallel careers in both art and science. He believes this combination of disciplines is the key to creativity. Jeremiah has spent many years working in remote areas of the world on the leading edge of the adventure industry. He is deeply involved in environmental issues globally, both above and below the surface of the water.
Jeremiah Sullivan™ is recognized as the pioneer of extreme interactions with sharks in the open sea. Jeremiah has sustained thousands of shark bites with no significant injuries to himself, divers in his care or the wild sharks with which he works. Jeremiah is the first known person to have conducted 'Friendly Encounters' with large Great White Sharks in the open sea (1987). Those astonishing historical interactions set the stage for things to come and were no doubt conceptually formative in multiple film and commercial projects. Jeremiah's work and developments with his Sharksuits are the world standard and have been instrumental in the development of the global shark diving industry. Without question Jeremiah Sullivan remains one of the most experienced shark interaction specialists in the water.
