Arcom involved in GPS tracking project with US

Cambridge technology is being used in a pioneering GPS tracking device that could prove a significant weapon for fighting organised crime and terrorism in a range of environment from seaports to military bases and stop theft, vandalism and sabotage in retail outlets and schools. Arcom in Cambridge and Homeland Integrated Security Systems Inc in North Carolina are set for a worldwide commercial windfall after developing the Cyber Tracker V.1. They are ready to start manufacturing and deliver product in the fourth quarter of this year. Arcom, a supplier of industrial embedded computer and communications processors, has produced the underlying hardware for the tracker – a portable detection device designed to provide real-time GPS tracking of vehicles, people or other mobile or movable objects. The Cyber Tracker is being marketed to the military and public safety sectors as well as consumer retail, school systems, ports and fleet management.
