The tracking arm of Restrata, Secure Locate, has secured its first aviation client, providing a fleet tracking solution to Bear Defense.

Securing a fleet

Bear Defense, a defence contractor providing advanced technical services, will be provided with 4 units to track a private fleet of airplanes.

Launched in 2005, Secure Locate aims to meet clients’ increasingly urgent need to have secure, web-based, accurate and up-to-date common operating pictures of their operations using digital maps and information overlays, underpinned by a fully redundant crisis communications and crisis management support service.

Security threats around the globe have never been more prominent, and so the requirement for the aviation industry to obtain and implement tracking technology is understandable and expected.

First aviation client

Steve Edgett, Vice President of Situational Awareness and Tracking at Restrata said: “Securing our first aviation client is of huge significance for Secure Locate and Restrata. The solution has already set a benchmark of excellence in the world of tracking and crisis management, and is well known for its ability to track on the ground assets with a platform that allows the client to identify, avoid and where necessary respond effectively when issues occur.

“We now hope to provide aviation clients with the same level of peace of mind from our solution backed up by 24/7 monitoring, crisis management and a technical support service.”
