GOST, which makes security and monitoring systems, has added a velocity tracking function to its Nav-Tracker IDP Series satellite tracking system.
The new feature incorporates an accelerometer into the antenna, letting users set a reporting interval when the boat is moving faster than a certain speed. This reporting interval begins when the boat is in use, even if the geofence system is disarmed.
The feature, when enabled from the GOST Specter website, will automatically adjust the frequency of reports to two, five, 15 or 30 minutes, or one, two, four, eight, 12 or 24 hours whenever the boat is going faster than 2 knots.
“While our systems’ primary goal has always been to track down stolen boats and alert the customer when an armed boat moves, our clients also use our systems for many other reasons, such as knowing the boat is close to its destination while doing a crossing or if loved ones are on their way back in from a day of fishing offshore,” Brian Kane, chief technology officer for GOST, stated in a press release. “This new feature adds another layer of ingenuity, removing any potential user error by automatically tracking, on defined levels, when the boat is in use.”
How is the IDP Series tracking system interface managed? By the GOST Specter website that launched last year. The interface retains a 90-day tracking history and can monitor multiple vessels for fleet management.
