"We've been tracking the wireless sensor networking space for a very long time. With the recent advances in sensor technologies, the convergence of sensors with technologies such as RFID and GPS, as well as the tools to manage and fuse data from these sources with geospatial information, we saw an opportunity to respond to the growing demand for comprehensive situational awareness solutions," said Otto Hoernig III, President and CEO of Trace Systems. "These solutions can be used to secure borders, airports, seaports, monuments, or other government facilities, as well as to protect our warfighters, identify and track assets or people, or use automatic identification technology and other programs to identify friendly forces and assets in transit, on the ground, at sea, in the air, or on the battlefield."
Hoernig continued, "Our team has a long history of working alongside our DoD, DHS, and Intelligence community clients to address their communications needs. We have operated side by side with our clients in places like Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. We have a deep understanding of government communications requirements. We know the wireless technologies well. We're vendor neutral, and we're stepping in to fill the significant need for qualified system integrators that can provide comprehensive full-lifecycle support with the design, deployment, and ongoing support of purpose-built wireless and sensor-based solutions. Our investment in developing capabilities and solutions that span the entire spectrum of the WSN arena demonstrates our long-term commitment to our clients."
Trace Systems partners with large-scale systems integrators and leading wireless, sensor, RFID, geospatial information, knowledge management, and communications vendors to design and deploy end-to-end solutions on a global scale for defense, intelligence, and homeland security customers. DHS' Secure Border Initiative (SBINet), Army's Future Combat System (FCS), and the anticipated Army RFID III and Movement Tracking System Support (MTS II) acquisitions are all representative of the types of programs that are dependent upon the successful integration of wireless and sensor technologies, data fusion, and knowledgeable WSN operations, technical support, and sustainment resources.
