Satamatics Signs MOBEX to Provide Asset Tracking Services

Tuesday, September 17, 2002
Satamatics-Americas has announced that MOBEX Network Services, the American marine industry specialist, has agreed to be a Satamatics Telematics Application Service Provider. MOBEX of Jeffersonville, Ind., will supply FCC Authorized Satamatics asset-tracking services to the commercial and recreational marine industries in the United States, and throughout North, Central and South America, working in conjunction with Satamatics-Americas, based in Ocala, Fla. Key commercial uses for the services include asset tracking for barge owners and operators, an application area for which MOBEX already has an extensive track record. The potential barge market alone in the U.S for the MOBEX/ Satamatics service can be measured in the tens of thousands of units. The MOBEX/ Satamatics’ telematics solution makes it both economical and easy for barge owners to check the position and cargo status of their valuable assets at regular intervals, via programmable solar-powered satellite transceivers, communicating over the Inmarsat Satellite Network to office computers using secure Internet connections. Status reporting can range from simple position information or monitoring water levels in voids within a barge, to controlling pumps automatically or monitoring and reporting virtually any measurable parameters, such as the many operating systems of tow boat engines. The term telematics defines systems that combine computer and telecommunications operations. Applying satellite-based telematics to the gathering and reporting of information pertaining to any and all measurable parameters enables real-time global monitoring, tracking, control and data acquisition.
