CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2012) - Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) ("Blackline") is pleased to announce that a six-member judging panel based in the United Kingdom has listed Blackline's Flat Track Covert Tracker as a Counter Terror and Specialty Security (CTSS) Awards finalist in the category of Surveillance, Data and Intelligence. These awards recognize outstanding products, services, and solutions made to ensure we live in a safer world. The CTSS Awards are affiliated with the Counter Terror Expo, the premier global event for professionals tasked with ensuring a formidable and effective response to threats we face today.
"Feedback from surveillance professionals in Europe, the US, and Canada speaks to the value delivered by Flat Track's unique form-factor. Its ultra-thin design, slimmer and smaller than an iPad 2, provides opportunity for creative concealment such as laminated within cardboard packaging corrugations, hidden compartments, and within false bottoms of cases," says Cody Slater, Blackline's CEO. "Being shortlisted for the CTSS awards reinforces Flat Track`s value as a new, innovative solution to service the needs of surveillance professionals."
Flat Track delivers a suite of tools that include real-time GPS tracking, automatic track-on-motion, zone entry and exit alerting, and vibration detection & alerting. The powerful online interface enables users to remotely monitor and map the real-time activities of targeted individuals while also documenting past movements, including location, speed, and direction. When Flat Track is removed from its concealed location, a sensor detects its removal, enabling Flat Track to communicate a real-time alert to its surveillance user.
Award winners will be decided by industry vote with announcements at the CTSS Awards Gala on Wednesday, April 25th, 2012 at the Royal Garden Hotel, London, England. Blackline will be exhibiting at the affiliated Washington D.C. Counter Terror Expo, from May 16 to 17, 2012.
