Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - R&D]
    Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.
  • [Process Optimization - Real Time Asset Tracking]
    The location of individuals and assets can be identified in near real-time.
  • [Data Management - Data Accuracy]
    for greater positioning accuracy. Greater positioning accuracy is enabled through the ports on the Easytrak console which allows it to interface with gyros and vertical reference units (VRUs)
Quantitative Benefit
  • The system has a wide operating temperature, from -20 degree Celsius to 70 degree Celsius.
