CompassCom Inc., the provider of Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology to the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, has created and filled two new executive positions to expand the CompassCom line of software into asset tracking and location based service (LBS) solutions in support of Homeland Security and related programs.

Craig Snapp has assumed the new position of Chief Technology Officer, and Montie Carr will assume the new position of Chief Marketing Officer. Both joined CompassCom on June 10. Snapp brings an impressive list of accomplishments in the software and network technology industry to CompassCom. With more than 25 years of experience, Snapp will work to expand the CompassCom AVL products into a suite of modular, platform-neutral products.

Carr has more than 20 years of executive-level, business development experience in the communications industry. Carr’s goals for CompassCom include expanding strategic relationships with customers and business partners to enable business growth, and analysis of the emerging Homeland Security market.

Under the new direction, CompassCom will leverage its proven CompassFDE™ server technology to develop several new products. CompassCom will form strategic partnerships with leading GIS and GPS system developers to embed the server software into new custom and off-the-shelf products. CompassCom will also be releasing a software developers kit (SDK). Additional plans are underway to build turnkey asset tracking and location based appliance products on the CompassFDE™ architecture.
