This application is a web-based Geospatial Intelligence tracking, messaging and reporting program that is part of a worldwide data collection system for mobile tracking Devices. This application works with almost all tracking Devices regardless of manufacturer, type, capabilities or location. This application can operate as a standalone system, or it can work with other applications using its plugin architectural framework. The software also tracks and displays Support Team Radios (optional) at the same time as Devices. This functionality provides Users with the full circle of situational awareness needed to support state-of-the art tracking projects.
3.1 Product Description
The Application’s tracking capabilities are based on worldwide Global Positioning Systems (GPS). GPS satellites transmit signals used by Devices (and Radios) to calculate their locations. Once a Device has that position, it periodically transmits the location over satellite, radio, or mobile (cellular) systems to a central UniTrac based server. This is the new, modern user interface for UniTrac based systems. UniTrac collects the reporting data and this application displays and controls Device and Radio information.
3.2 Command and Control Capabilities
The application provides Users not only the ability to track Devices, but to remotely communicate with and control advanced Devices using two-way over-the-air (OTA) Command and Control (C2). For example, many new trackers may be controlled to report at a slow rate when sitting still, then speed up reporting if the Device moves. Using this application, these Devices can be remotely controlled to transmit locations only when motion occurs, when the Device enters or leaves target areas, or when temperature changes might affect battery life. These newer Devices have almost unlimited capabilities that continue to improve daily. How Devices are configured depends on their mission, the capabilities of each Device, and the User’s situational awareness of internal and external environments.
This application is also designed to receive Panic Alerts issued from Devices and report breaches of geofences and boundaries. When triggered, these Device options notify Users of changing Operational situations. Some Devices, with very advanced capabilities, even allow Users to respond directly to a Device when it transmits a Panic Alert and communicate directly with its owner. In those situations, Device owners may send back emergency audio and picture files during the alert to provide more information to the User. These functions provide greater security, better communications and improved response time for officers or agents in the field.
3.3 Other Capabilities Include
