On the occasion of the IFSEC security congress in London this year, M2M and geolocation specialist AGUILA Technologies is launching on the UK market its very latest generation GPS mini-tracker, the AGUILA 1000. Light, with very long energy autonomy, it is the smallest geolocation tracker in the world today.
The company will be present on the French Tech Pavillion, booth C1250 to C1275.
New uses to meet increasing needs for geolocation
The current surge in thefts of shipments, jewellery, works of art, equipment, machinery and various commodities, together with the increased requirement for anticipation in the Logistics and Supply Chain sectors are making geolocation systems even more of a necessity. Now there is a demand to track an ever-increasing number of ever-smaller elements with systems that are even more powerful and discreet.
Accordingly, AGUILA Technologies has developed a highly innovative mini geolocation tracker.Its energy autonomy (of up to 1 year), borderless coverage with GPRS communications, accuracy, small size and lightness (weighing less than 35g) open up new uses in a market with increasing requirements in terms of anti-theft monitoring and traceability.
Very strong interests from the market
Currently this miniature GPS tracker is eliciting a great deal of interest amongst insurance companies and security and logistics professionals, with orders received for several thousand units. Its presence at the IFSEC 2015 aims to open up major foreign markets, in particular partnerships with distributors and integrators in the geolocation and security sectors.
A real technological innovation
The AGUILA1000 mini-tracker from AGUILA Technologies is the result of several years of Research and Development.
The technological feat consists of incorporating a set of technology innovations within an extremely small sized unit: a highly sensitive mini-GPS, accurate to 3m, movement and impact sensors, Bluetooth 4 (low-consumption) communications, GPRS data transmission, and various power-management scenarios making possible long-lasting and complete energy autonomy.
“This is the result of our geolocation experiences in difficult real-world situations and also of AGUILA’s advanced R&D”, explains Hubert Forgeot, founder and CEO of AGUILA Technologies. “With this mini geolocation system we have a significant competitive advantage over current units, which are larger and have much shorter battery lives. Our tracker can remain on standby for up to 1 year, depending on the mode of use.”
Method of operation
All the monitoring and alert parameters (sensitivity to movement, tracking duration and regularity, outline of the security area, geofencing, etc.) can be configured remotely with simplified ergonomics, using a smartphone, tablet or PC.
For complete reliability, whatever the mode of use selected, the system regularly sends messages to the user confirming its power level and correct functioning.
