GOST Nav-Tracker GPS Tracking System :
Tracking the Progress of the 2011:
Unique Circumnavigation Mobile CEO, Family To Embark on Three-Year Voyage Aboard Lagoon 500
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) The Nav-Tracker GPS tracking system from boat security systems supplier Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST formerly Paradox Marine) will be used to monitor the progress of Three Little Birds, a Lagoon 500 catamaran as it travels around the world. Boat captain Scott Leonard and his family (wife Mandi, sons Griffin, Jake and Luke) will embark on a unique three-year circumnavigation in July. During the voyage, Scott plans to become The Mobile CEO running his multi-million dollar financial services firm while sailing around the world on his 50 foot Yacht.
"With so many people interested in following the progress of our trip, having GOST's Nav- Tracker GPS tracking system on our boat is critical to providing up to date, fully automated location information. Add to that the peace of mind provided with the geofence when we have to leave the boat in remote locations to return home for work said The Mobile CEO, Scott Leonard. GOST Nav-Tracker can be used to track a vessel (or an entire fleet) from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. A boat's precise voyage and exact location can be viewed on Google Earth and as new reports come in from the Nav-Tracker, they are automatically updated to the site.
With Nav-Tracker installed aboard Three Little Birds, we have an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the unique vessel tracking and monitoring capabilities of our system around the world, said GOST President Jay Keenan.
When a Nav-Tracker transmitter is mounted on a vessel and armed, a wireless geo-fence with a 500-meter radius is created. If a boat is moved outside of this fence, Nav-Tracker uses Inmarsat based GPS satellite technology to monitor a boats location and notify up to ten people by email and/or text message every 2 minutes with the exact latitude/longitude, speed and heading of the vessel.
