TracPlus Global Launches TracWatch Worldwide
02 August 2009
TracPlus Global Ltd has released onto the international market
the newest version of TracWatch, its active monitoring service for
tracking vessels, aircraft and personnel.
The company developed TracWatch to complement traditional
emergency locator transmitters (ELT's), which need to survive an
accident in order to activate and alert rescue authorities.
With TracWatch, aircraft, vessels and personnel are monitored
continuously from a secure data centre via a global satellite
network. As soon as communications are lost, an alert message is
automatically sent to nominated cell phones and pagers, and then
escalated to authorities.
Paul Rogerson, director of Australian aircraft operator Thompson
Aviation says, "TracWatch's ability to alert us to any issues gives
us the freedom and confidence to go about our daily work knowing
that we will automatically be kept updated."
Chris Hinch, founder of TracPlus Global, says, "Unlike other
services which require a break in the transmission of position
reports to activate, TracWatch can detect emergency situations
where personnel require assistance but the satellite tracking
equipment continues to send reports."
The TracWatch service is supported by Rescue Coordination Centre
of New Zealand.
