Cubic Corp, S3 jointly offer tracking system
Apr 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Cubic Corp has signed a joint marketing agreement with San Diego CA-based Satellite Security Systems (S3) to offer military and civilian customers in the homeland defense market a tracking system that uses the government's satellite Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.
One likely use for such a system would be to track movements of vehicles around the established perimeter of buildings or facilities that require a high level of protection. The system offers two-way communications, which allows messages that are sent back to the tracking unit to be displayed. This system also allows information, such as rate of acceleration, turning radius and speed, to be determined and displayed in real-time.
The Cubic/S3 system includes Cubic's PC-RIS product, a software system that produces maps showing precise location data and visual positions of objects or vehicles (both stationary and in motion), coupled with S3's GlobalGuard system, the unit that tracks the objects, using GPS. While many tracking systems use cellular technology, this system uses satellite technology, which is more reliable and offers better geographical coverage, with a reach that extends across North and South America.
