KADIMA, Israel — SuperCom Ltd. has unveiled new technology for active tracking of people and assets.
The Israeli provider of smart card and electronic identification products has developed movement detection technology that can monitor and track numerous items simultaneously. The tracking technology employs small, low-powered RF tags attached to an object or a person. License-free radio bands are used to track the RF band from a programmable transmitter.
SuperCom claims its Pure RF product can monitor and locate tagged items using a hand-held tracking device, which can also be integrated into cellphones. SuperCom has joined with Green Science International Ltd., an Asian distributor of health products, to customize its contactless smart card system and integrate it into Green Science’s retail systems. With an eye on the U.S. homeland security market, the company has appointed former CIA Director R. James Woolsey as chairman of its advisory board. The board was established to help identify new applications for homeland security, military and document authentication markets.
