Terion launched FleetView 3T -- a product line extension specifically designed for managing tanker trailers. The FleetView 3 technology platform was developed to accommodate all kinds of asset types and to support many different sensors. The product is designed to gather information from cargo sensors, door sensors, Tractor ID devices, tire pressure sensors, and gas pressure sensors. The product communicates real-time trailer location and event status when the trailer is tethered or untethered, and provides an accurate record of loaded or unloaded status by way of a patented Cargo Sensor.

Electronic Sensor Technology has received an order from Northrop Grumman Corporation, a leading defense contractor and shipbuilder distributor, for three zNose devices. The devices are expected to be used for cargo detection in Louisiana as part of Northrop Grumman's security integration project for the U.S. Navy. The zNose is an electronic sensor device that can capture and analyze nearly any odor, fragrance or chemical vapor within ten seconds, for security and defense applications.
Tank gauging systems specialist PSM’s new iCT level pressure and temperature sensors are suitable for all ship sizes and types. The requirement for increasing amounts of reliable data on board has driven up demand for sensors. One consequence of larger manufacturing volumes has been that sensors have become relatively inexpensive. However, installation costs are another matter, and continue to rise. Today, the cost of installing a level gauging system either as a new build or a
