Portman Security Systems Ltd, a leading manufacturer of GPS tracking devices, announces WITS (Weapons Intelligent Tracking Systems). A firearms and body armor GPS Tracking system that employs GPS/ RF/ and GPRS functionality all in one system for Law Enforcement and Military Applications. The addition is made to an already popular line of tracking devices Portman has been producing for years, widening the capabilities in the GPS tracking industry.
The Portman WITS System can sense traumatic bullet impact to the officer's personal body armor, knows when a weapon has been drawn and discharged, knows the number of rounds fired and the trajectory of projectiles as well as hearing hostile fire in close proximity to them. Furthermore the device has an intelligent interface capable of detecting whether shots are incoming or outgoing. This information is instantly transmitted to the central monitoring station, headquarters or a dispatcher for immediate response, reports and analysis.
With Portman's unique WITS system, Officers don't even have to key their microphone to notify that they have been hit or involved in a firefight. Event, ID, location as well as vital data about the incident are transmitted immediately to the control server. Future reports can easily be generated by the server to re-create the details of an incident where firearms are involved, eliminating discrepancies in reports.
This patented system (US Patent No. 12/187,110) is designed to save the lives and protect our dedicated men and women in military or law enforcement agencies. WITS also provides an accurate GPS location system with mapping and real time tracking; offering automated alert and response faster than humanly possible in a life or death situation. In the case where an Officer is incapacitated or unable to communicate, the system will work for them to inform the agency of their situation. If the weapon leaves the proximity of the officer; an emergency event is also immediately sent to the dispatcher. Real time tracking is also available to assist in the recovery of a weapon configured with WITS technology. Portman has invested in this project with the intent to save lives.
