The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) produced the Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) to provide secure communications and worldwide container tracking.
Since September 11, 2001, national security has been more important than ever before. One major threat to this security is the potential that dangerous materials could enter the United States through our numerous shipping ports. With millions of cargo containers entering the United States everyday, it is imperative to know if the security of a container has been compromised before the ship reaches shore.
iControl's system is equipped with sensors for monitoring container contents (iCHIME), tags for tracking container positions (iTAG), electronic padlocks that add external security to tracking (mLOCK), and gateways (iGATE) that transmit data from the cargo to the user interface (iVIEW). By implementing this integrated system, alert notifications are sent immediately, preventing dangerous material from reaching U.S. ports.
