The Opteev Story

Opteev may sound new, but it is the joint development of two seasoned manufacturers with decades of experience in airflow, temperature control, technology and sensor development.

Novatec, Inc. originally provided air filtration equipment for use on submarines during World War II but since then has developed into the leading US producer of equipment for the air conveying of free-flowing materials as well as air drying of hygroscopic materials. With numerous patents in airflow and air-drying machinery, Novatec’s experts have contributed to the joint air flow knowledge base with a strong US manufacturing presence and technology strength. MachineSense, LLC also based in the US and its fully owned Kolkata, India-based subsidiary have specialized in the internet of things technology (IoT) space since its inception in 2014. Notable achievements have been developing manufacturing platforms for Industry 4.0 for airflow conveying systems, designing and applying vibration sensors for in-plant networks to detect machine anomalies, as well as electrical power analyzers to detect changes in motors and other equipment.

This unique combination of talents, backgrounds and technology has combined to form Opteev, which  focuses on the existing FeverWarn temperature scanning system that is widely used throughout the US at leading sporting events, schools, banks, hotels and more. ViraWarn, the first ever plugin sensor for indoor airborne virus detection, has been successfully tested throughout the recent COVID-19 crisis in India to gather lab tests and in-person testing. Opteev’s product suite of FeverWarn and ViraWarn are part of a full-fledged BioViral Prevention Plan™ to provide strategies and products to effectively screen and monitor people and rooms within indoor spaces—as well as improve outcomes and air quality for expanded productivity and quality of life.

Our Leadership

Conrad Bessemer

Chairman & Founder

Conrad is the executive chairman and co-founder of MachineSense, LLC and the CEO/Managing Partner of both Opteev, Inc. and Novatec, Inc. Novatec is the largest manufacturer of dehumidifying dryers for the plastics industry in North America. Prior to the purchase of Novatec, Conrad worked for The Conair Group, Inc. (Pittsburgh, PA) a manufacturer of auxiliary equipment for plastics from 1996 until 2006.

During his tenure, the company grew 500% in revenue. From 2001 to 2006, Conrad was President of Conair North America. He left Conair in 2006 to join with Steve Maguire of Maguire Products, Inc. to purchase Novatec. Through the introduction of new products and with his leadership, Novatec has tripled in sales. This has been accomplished with the active assistance of his wife Susan who is a major part of the leadership team.

In addition, Conrad serves as Chairman of the Political Science Board of Visitors of Pennsylvania State University.

Biplab Pal, Ph.D.

Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer

Biplab co-founded MachineSense, LLC and assumed the role of Chief Technology Officer in September of 2014. Biplab became President & COO of MachineSense in December 2018.

He leads a multi-disciplinary in-house engineering team in the development of MachineSense’s IoT technology. The development has led to 14 US and international patent applications in Industrial IoT.

Throughout his career, Biplab has worked extensively in the R&D of sensor and sensor networking for process engineering and telecommunication. Before co-founding MachineSense, Biplab started a R&D company in 2012, Zreyas Technology, Inc. which produced wireless connected sensors for emerging IoT areas. There he led the development of a fault monitoring earth/ground system for cell towers, IoT-based farming automation using an extended Zigbee system, a Bluetooth-based bio-authenticated security system for community locking as well as an IR/UV-based fraud detection system.

In 2013, he spun off Autopredictivecoding, LLC from Zreyas Technology, Inc. for the development of Big Data machine learning algorithms used in extracting real time intelligence from high velocity sensor data. He has also served as advisor to the CEO for Big Data analytic companies Soft10, Inc. and Treeminer, Inc.

Biplab’s extensive experience includes the development of optical sensor technology while he worked as principal sensor engineer and R&D manager for Endress+Hausser in Anaheim. He developed new sensor systems for UV-visible /IR for FDA/EPA mandated quality control in the biotech, pharmaceutical, oil and gas and environmental sectors. He has also worked as Principal Engineer for Ciena Corp.

Biplab is an alumni of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT KGP) where he obtained BS & MS in Physics and a Ph.D. in Electronics and Telecommunication. During the pursuit of his Ph.D., he worked in Politechnique di Turino and University of Pisa in Italy in a collaborative optical electronics research program funded by the European Union.
