Jordanian company orders 1,000 Cyber Trackers

Published 3 March 2006

What with al Queda operatives blowing up hotels in downtown Amman, they have to do a lot of tracking in Jordan. Little surprise then, that Ashville, North Carolina-based Homeland Integrated Security Systems (OTC: HISC) has received an order for 1,000 of its patent-pending iDEN Cyber Trackers from Amman, Jordan-based XPress Telecommunications. XPress was the first Arab company in the Middle East to introduce the iDEN technology into the region. The technology combines the abilities of ordinary mobile phones with the instantaneous Direct Connect (walkie-talkie) service. The Cyber Tracker is a GPS device that features real-time tracking, geo-fencing, and push-to-talk technology. It also boasts a rugged design which makes it applicable in a variety of situations in which, as law enforcement people would say, it is necessary to know the exact location of a person or object.

Note that XPress was granted the exclusivity of deploying iDEN by Motorola, which developed the technology in 1994. XPress currently has more than 200 employees. The company’s own nationwide network covers most of Jordan’s populated areas.
