GPS (Global Positioning System) has come full force into our modern lives and created a new perspective on security. Originally developed in 1973 as a military navigation tool, the technology relied on satellites to track locations of soldiers and operatives in the field during missions. It was released to the general public in 1996 by a policy directive established by Bill Clinton. It took several years to emerge into the consumer market and since the early-to-mid 2000s, GPS has become a household term.
GPS by itself is pretty limited. It relies solely on satellite information to triangulate the position of a target object. Alone it is not very useful. But when combined with radio transmissions and telephony it becomes an invaluable tool to accurately track targets and provide detailed information on location, traveled paths, speed of travel and time stamping.
Since its commercial inception, GPS has been used in navigation systems in vehicles, personal tracking devices as well as surveying and mapping instruments. It has proven itself invaluable in industries such as construction, commercial trucking, private investigation, vehicle protection… the list goes on.
Stop for a moment and think about how GPS tracking can make your life safer, more secure and save you money. Would you like to recover your vehicle quickly in the event of grand theft auto? Are you having marriage problems due to false suspicion of cheating? Do you own a buy-here, pay-here lot and want to be able to recover vehicles easily in the event of a repossession? Do you want to track your teenager’s whereabouts and driving habits i.e.: speed, path of travel and time at specific locations? Do you just simply want to save gas money by routing your travel routines or long road trips? All these scenarios have solutions in GPS tracking.Google+
