Guardian Mobility announced today that it will be supplying the Mexican Government with 65 Guardian 3 aircraft tracking devices, along with Guardian Mapping, in collaboration with its Mexican partner EZC Inc. Guardian will be showing these products at Heli-Expo in booth #3040 from February 21 to the 23 in Houston.
The Mexican Government is equipping its aircraft with tracking units from Guardian Mobility in order to securely manage country-wide security operations. In order to accommodate various types of aircraft with different space constraints, Guardian has supplied Mexico with two versions of its portable Guardian 3 device. This system leverages the Iridium satellite network to send ongoing position reports to Guardian Mapping that can be viewed using a web browser.
With Guardian Mapping, the government will be able to track aircraft locations in near real time, and report on flight times and distances for all 65 aircraft. These capabilities will allow the Mexican government to know the status of their aircraft and have greater visibility into the operations of contractors.
“Our partner EZC Inc is well respected in the region,” said Jean Carr, president and CEO of Guardian. “Their commitment to customers makes them an ideal partner for Guardian.”
“We believe that Guardian’s products will help our clients improve their operations and better manage their fleet” said Elias Zabaneh, president and CEO of EZC. “We are confident that their products are superior and will integrate well with our client-centric fleet management programs for our corporate and regional operators”
