Homeland Security Technology Offers GPS Systems With Iraq Street Maps To US Armed Forces

Del Mar CA (SPX) May 06, 2005
Colonel Jeffrey A. Powers, CEO of Homeland Security Technology, announced last Thursday that HST has signed a marketing/reselling agreement with GPS World Supply of West Chicago, IL, to offer an exclusive line of rugged, custom packaged GPS devices to the US Armed Forces.

These GPS devices are designed for use in Iraq and Afghanistan and come pre-loaded with maps and databases for those specific locations.

These units offer a solution to an immediate need for personnel working in Iraq and Afghanistan. Survival and mission accomplishment is dependent upon maintaining situational awareness.

This technology is readily available and can be quickly fielded. These units have the ability to display Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), in addition to LAT/LONG coordinates.

"We have been field testing these models in Iraq with civilian security contractors and have modified our offering based on their after action reports. We have recently added Afghanistan databases due to operational commitments of units requesting our GPS," said Colonel Powers.

Speaking as to HST's relationship with GPS World Supply Colonel Powers commented, "Entering into an agreement with GPS World Supply makes our offering of pre-packaged, pre-loaded GPS models very unique.

"We are happy to be on board and have been working very hard in concert with GPS World Supply to provide our troops in the field with what they need the most ... the very best equipment available on the market today."
