August 31, 2011
CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwire – Aug. 31, 2011) – ASIS International, a leading organization for security professionals worldwide, has selected Blackline GPS Corp (TSX VENTURE:BLN) as one of the top 10 winners of the ASIS Accolades Security’s Best competition. A panel of judges representing end users and experts in security technologies chose Blackline’s Flat Track Covert Tracker as one of the 10 most innovative new products, services, and solutions for 2011.
“It’s an honor to have Flat Track selected as one of the top 10 new security solutions by the renowned ASIS International organization,” said Cody Slater, Blackline’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’re pleased that the judging panel recognized Flat Track’s ground-breaking design featuring an ultra-slim 8 mm thick profile.”
Flat Track’s unique design enables discrete concealment in applications such as within product packaging, laminated within cardboard packaging corrugations, hidden compartments, and within false bottoms of cases. Once placed, the user may enable a vibration-sensing feature that provides real-time activity notification through mobile messaging. It also features removal detection that notifies the user when its presence has been discovered.
Flat Track provides security professionals with a sophisticated toolset for surveillance and loss prevention applications in a wide range of applications. Once embedded within goods or assets, it enables the user to remotely map its location and monitor activities that may lead to theft or damage of property or the travels of targeted individuals.
