Vista, CA (PRWEB) August 4, 2009
Raveon Technologies announced a unique UHF-band GPS Personal Locator for real-time tracking and emergency location of personnel in mission-critical circumstances. Along with real-time GPS position reporting, Raveon's Atlas PL has advanced safety features such as position alert, proximity alert, and man-down.
The ATLAS PL may be worn on a belt, carried in a back-pack, or strapped to a vehicle. It instantly sends GPS position, radio status, and possible alert conditions over the UHF radio channel back to base stations, mobile displays, or to other ATLAS PLs. And in time of need, the user may press an alert button and send a critical alert signal out requesting attention or urgent assistance.
Because the ATLAS PL, like all of Raveon's GPS tracking products, uses UHF radio channels there are no recurring fees and no cellular service required to operate it. The ATLAS PL will work anywhere on the planet you deploy your system. Update rates as fast as every second are possible, and hundreds of ATLAS PLs may be in the same area operating without interference. The ATLAS PL is part of Raveon's RavTrack family of real-time GPS tracking products. Raveon offers complete solutions for personal tracking, vehicle tracking, and all system components required to build a complete GPS tracking system.
The Atlas PL is a valuable component of an emergency response, search and rescue, wildfire fighting, or security team. Its many unique features make it superb for these types of applications because:
1. Extremely Rugged. - The ATLAS PL uses Raveon's "single-board" construction with GPS, modem, radio, and processor all secured on one circuit board. The light-weight aluminum housing is crush-proof and water-proof, yet the entire unit weighs less than one pound.
2. Critical Alerts. - A built-in "Man-Down" sensor along with a manually activated Alert button and a Critical Alert feature allow dispatch and command centers to quickly identify critical situations.
3. Extended Battery Life. - 24 hours of operation with fast updates, and many weeks of operation with less frequent update rates.
4. Broad Range of Software Options. - Raveon's Ravtrack products are broadly supported by numerous GPS software solutions, including Raveon's RavTrack PC, CES PT3, GlobalMapper, and Google Earth. See http://ravtrack.com/AVL-Software.html
5. Secure. - All position reports are 128-bit AES encrypted for secure communications.
6. Built-In Battery and Charger. - The ATLAS PL's large 2200mAh battery operates the unit for days, and the ATLAS PL may be recharged from any 12V DC power source.
7. Uses UHF radio channels. - No public network access is needed. It works even when the cell systems don't with no monthly fees.
Very Fast Updates. With up to 20 positions reports every second, you can track in truly real-time.
Public, dealer, and OEM inquiries are invited.
