Doosan Infracore Portable Power’s Blackhawk MVS-6 Mobile Video Surveillance allows remote monitoring of jobsites or other outdoor areas at substantially lower cost than security manpower.

TrakitGPS’s TrakitALL Asset Locating and Logistics module is a remote wireless satellite transmitter with integrated GPS chipset, motion sensor and sensor inputs that is powered by off-the-shelf AA batteries, with expected battery life of four years. Transmitters can be installed in just a few minutes, and are easily relocated to other assets.
