CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 11, 2012) - Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) ("Blackline") is pleased to announce that its Flat Track™ covert tracker and second generation Loner® worker safety monitor have each been awarded the top "Platinum Govie 2012" by Security Products magazine at the Government Security Conference & Expo ("GovSec") that caters to the $194B Homeland Security market. The awards were held last week during the GovSec event at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
"To receive the highest award designation in not one but two separate categories at one of the leading US government security events is truly an honour," says Cody Slater, CEO for Blackline GPS.
Platinum in Homeland Security - Smaller and thinner than an iPad, Blackline's Flat Track has been designed to covertly monitor location-based activity of packages, assets, and shipments. This gives the user a unique ability to track not only the location, movement and timing of where their package is but also when the package is opened in real-time on their cellphone or on their computer. Real-time GPS tracking and automatic track-on-motion provides users with automatic location updates, including zone entry and exit alerts, as well as features such as vibration and motion alerting.
Platinum in Fire/Life Safety - Blackline's second generation Loner incorporates an intuitive emergency latch that, when released, instantly calls for help to the worker's precise location - acting like a personal fire alarm. Slips, trips, and falls are a leading source of workplace injuries and death and Blackline's patented True Fall Detection™ is able to identify when a man is down so that response personnel may attend to them as quickly as possible.
