HISS Tests GSM Tracker

Homeland Integrated Security Systems (HISC) has successfully conducted the first GSM testing of its revolutionary Cyber Tracker

ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Homeland Integrated Security Systems (OTC: HISC) has successfully conducted the first GSM testing of its revolutionary Cyber Tracker in the United Kingdom and France. In a first-of-its-kind test earlier this month, the Cyber Tracker was placed on the Eurostar, the high-speed passenger train service that links the UK with France and Belgium. While on the Eurostar, the Cyber Tracker was tracked at speeds up to 200 miles per hour, the fastest conditions the device has ever been tested under. The GSM version is the second version of the Cyber Tracker.

"The significance of this test was not only to demonstrate the fact that our GSM version of the Cyber Tracker will operate in Europe, but to show its capabilities at high speeds," said Frank Moody, CEO of Homeland Integrated Security Systems. "It also demonstrated the fact that the Cyber Tracker does not need full line-of-sight in order to perform its GPS tracking capabilities. At some times during the test, it was actually inside the Channel Tunnel."

The Cyber Tracker is currently the only portable, low-cost device that supports Push to Talk, tracking and computer functions without utilizing a cellular phone. The Cyber Tracker incorporates a single board design with the Motorola iO200 modem, the Intel X scale processor, and extended battery life along with exclusive Cyber Tracker technology. This allows the unit to work as a portable processing device, creating a product with no boundaries or wires at a reasonable cost. The Cyber Tracker's convenient rugged design (5" x 5" x 1") makes it applicable in a variety of situations where it is necessary to know the exact location of a person, vehicle or other object.
