IRT Develops Container Security Systems

IR Telmetrics is designing specific components for shipping container security systems. Using patented microwave data telemetry and a combination of GPS and inertial navigation, the IRT components will track and monitor shipping containers while in transit, while being loaded, and while in the shipping yard. IRT has already assembled a well qualified team, including Sun Microsystems and SSA Marine, which will provide the necessary expertise to realize DHS requirements of a global data center for shipping container security that serves both the government and commercial sector.

The worldwide technology leader in providing wireless data transfer in challenging internal environments, IRT has won a Small Business Innovation Research Grant to continue to explore shipping container security systems. IRT is interested in partnering with larger organizations to further develop this technology.
