GPS Tracking

We get several calls per week asking about GPS tracking. Today we wanted to answer some of the most frequently asked questions here so you know what to expect from us and what you should ask our competitors.

Our equipment:

We use the same equipment as numerous local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the FBI. We learned the value of using the best equipment available early on, having bought thousands of dollars of cheap units and even trying some of the professional units designed for fleet tracking.

The lesson learned: Use a purpose-build devices!

The devices:

  • Are extremely small in size
  • Can operate for weeks without maintenance
  • Have quad band cellular connections
  • Use anti-jamming technology
  • Have extremely sensitive GPS receivers
  • Are adjustable to meet mission requirements
  • Contain internal motion sensors which are:
    • Not reliant on GPS signal
    • So sensitive we know when someone gets in/out of the vehicle or slams a door
  • Can report position from triangulation if GPS is blocked
  • Can log location if cell signal is lost and report back when it reconnects
  • Have no external lights
  • Have a panic button interface
  • Have internal antennas
  • Are FCC certified for use in the USA
  • Have worldwide coverage available

Our Services:

We offer Overt, Covert, and Clandestine placement of GPS tracking devices. What does this mean?

  1. Overt: This is a device placed in plain sight, or at least not hidden, and is hard wired to the vehicle's DC power system. These systems allow a vehicle to be tracked indefinitely. Additionally; the occupants of the vehicle can send a “panic alert” to any number of pre-designated recipients. This type of tracking usually presents no legal issues, as nothing is hidden and normally everyone involved knows there is a device installed.
  2. Covert: This is the most common type of installation. It involves concealing a tracking device on a vehicle. These are normally battery powered devices, but they can be hard wired systems as well. These systems are normally used to track vehicles for 15-90, days but with professional support, the vehicle can be tracked indefinitely. There are a few legal concerns with this type of tracking, but most of the time these can be addressed and the services provided.
  3. Clandestine: This is the most complicated form of tracking by far. It is similar to covert tracking services; however precautions are taken so if the tracking device is found, it cannot be traced back to a client. There are numerous legal issues with this type of service. While we do provide these services, we WILL NOT violate the law for any client for any reason. To protect both the customer and ourselves, we require a great deal of documented proof that the customer has the legal authority to authorize this type of service. If you are attempting to break the law, or conduct some other unauthorized act, please don't even bother to ask us.

We offer the tracking of both people and assets in addition to vehicles. These include:

  • Personal trackers provide to persons at risk: These devices can then be linked to an account that can be accessed by those designated by the person at risk. These devices also allow the person being tracked to activate a “panic alert” which will send a message to any number of pre-designated recipients.  This technology, combined with a second tracker, can allow “proximity alerts” to be set. This will let the person at risk know if a subject is near their current location, or near their home, office, church, or other designated location before that person is in sight. This is the ultimate peace of mind in high conflict situations.
  • We can conceal a tracking device into or onto nearly anything you can imagine and track it nationwide.
  • By combining cutting edge tools and techniques with professional support staff we can provide up to the second location data on anyone or anything – nationwide.

Our Competition:

So, what about the less expensive option of “do it yourself” jobs? What about “xyz tracker” that I can buy on the internet for $29.99?

The majority of these devices, and the service plans that go with them, are either cheap Chinese knockoffs, gimmicks, or outright frauds. They have cheap GPS receivers, single band and single provider cellular connections, and cheap batteries. In addition to the sub par equipment the user interface will be delayed in reporting the location of the devices, sometimes by as much as 20 minutes, even when the device is set to report the location every 10 seconds or less.

Also, if your intent is to use this information in court, these cheap devices and the data they produce can, and will, easily be torn to shreds by an expert. The result: you get what you pay for!!!

Thank you for letting us share this information with you, for questions about specific capabilities and a quote please contact us today.

WE WILL NOT BE RAISING OUR RATES TODAY

We would like to thank our competition for raising their rates! Last week developers of one of the tool suits we use here in our lab announced that they were raising their in house lab rates from $300 an hour to $500 an hour. WE WILL NOT BE RAISING OUR RATES just because we can get away with it as so many other labs did over the weekend. Until such time as we see an increase in overhead we will continue to have a maximum standard lab rate of $250 an hour and as many of our existing customers know, most of our routine services come in below that.


We want to thank everyone for supporting us and we can't think of any better way to say thank-you, than to never take advantage of our valued customers.
