Covert Assisted-GPS Tracking System with Large Capacity Battery

FreightWatch Security Net (FSN) : 24 March, 2010  (New Product)
The Geo F2 Pill Bottle is the latest location tracking device from FreightWatch using the inGeo reference design and small enough for covert tracking applications
FreightWatch Security Net (FSN) has announced its Geo F2 'Pill Bottle' Location Tracker. The Geo F2 is a small, industrial strength, assisted-GPS tracking product based on the inGeo reference design and technology developed by Qualcomm.

The Geo F2 product is packaged in a small but versatile form factor. With a pig-tail battery option attached, the Geo F2 device can literally be hidden in a pill bottle or equally small enclosure enabling many new covert tracking solutions. With a large capacity lithium-polymer battery option, the Geo F2 unit can also be deployed in rapid reporting, law enforcement surveillance situations or long term (more than a year) remote asset location assurance applications. Combined with the optional integrated Zigbee radio receiver, the Geo F2 becomes a remote, battery powered, sensor data collection and transmission platform. All in all, the FreightWatch Geo F2 'Pill Bottle' tracker sets a new performance standard for portable, value-priced, commercial class location tracking.

The FreightWatch Geo F2 'Pill Bottle' Tracker will be unveiled at International CTIA Wireless 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada beginning on March 23. FreightWatch will have the Geo F2 Covert Tracker on display in the M2M Zone Pavilion, Booth 254 and in the Qualcomm Booth #2439, Central Hall C4.

"Embedded cargo tracking in enclosed trailers is the most demanding environment for a location tracking device. This is why we chose the Qualcomm inGeo platform for our next generation electronic freight security (EFS) tracker. Qualcomm's inGeo technology distinguishes itself in impaired settings where standard GPS tracking devices do not work," said Bill Games, President of FreightWatch Security Net. "Working together with the Qualcomm team helped us develop an innovative product and bring it to market, quickly."

"We are pleased that FreightWatch Security Net is leveraging inGeo technology's unique capabilities for their cargo tracking solution," said Daniel Obodovski, director of business development at Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. "The combination of their vision and our innovative technology offers a unique blend of accuracy, visibility and reliability for a variety of customers in the supply chain and logistics space."

The Geo F2 is the newest product in FreightWatch's arsenal of covert trackers featuring superior location accuracy and reliable reporting in impaired settings. Coupled with FSNtracks, a web-based monitoring platform that provides 24/7/365 visibility of current and historical location and performance, a wide range of disposable and re-charge-able battery pack options, the Geo F2 'Pill Bottle' Tracker provides unmatched real time location and status information.

Qualcomm's inGeo technology enables extremely small, low-power, reliable and affordable devices that make use of Qualcomm's market-proven gpsOne position-location solution, which currently powers more than 500 million devices around the world with superior positioning capabilities. These intelligent power consumption innovations enable prolonged battery life.
