New tracking app for high risk environments

Friday 24 May 2024

TracPlus, a global provider of aerial firefighting software, has introduced the new TracPlus Beacon app. This innovative solution transforms smartphones into tracking devices, integrating with the TracPlus Cloud platform to extend tracking, operational oversight, and safety capabilities to various assets on land, sea, and air.

Designed for diverse and complex environments, TracPlus Beacon provides scalable and cost-effective tracking within cellular reception areas without requiring additional hardware. This allows teams to leverage their existing smartphones as sophisticated safety tools, providing real-time location updates directly within the TracPlus Cloud platform. The app caches location data when out of cellular range to ensure uninterrupted tracking.

Todd O’Hara, TracPlus’ Head of Product, highlights the significance of this development, stating, “The future of our industry hinges on connectivity, and embracing ‘cellular over satellite’ technology is a key step. The acceleration towards ubiquitous data access, even over fire fronts, is becoming more feasible and TracPlus Beacon represents our first step to capitalise on this shift."
