Blue Oceans Satellite Systems Inc. today announced its newest application for asset tracking and remote monitoring with the addition of its Explosives Regulatory Division (ERD) Compliant Satellite Based Explosives Magazine Monitoring Solution. The solution, based on the system requirements of the Federal Government of Canada’s Explosives Magazine Security Surveillance Program represents the latest evolution of the company’s remote monitoring capabilities.
The Explosive Magazine Monitoring Solution utilizes the Iridium Satellite Network - the largest commercial satellite constellation in the world, delivering truly global coverage to offer the only certified two-way access control to remote explosives magazines. Employing this bi-directional data service allows on demand remote queries of the system and immediate over-the-air system updates, such as the addition or removal of access entry codes. It also allows for the diagnosis of problems remotely, which virtually eliminates the need to dispatch service personnel. Additionally the base product is easily expandable, allowing two explosive magazines to be monitored from one unit. Consumers find these cost effective benefits particularly valuable.
“Blue Oceans understands the paramount need for security in the storage and monitoring of explosive materials. That is why we have engineered a product that can be used in absolutely any location. Unlike cellular, or other radio services, Iridium provides ubiquitous coverage anywhere on earth,” says Paul Anderson, President.
Blue Oceans is partnering with Value Added Resellers (VARs) across Canada to offer customers local installation and purchasing entities. “The alliance with VARs is a crucial element in our strategy to establish a strong regional presence in the Canadian market,” said Craig Pollard, Director of Data Services. “In an effort to expand our reach and serve customers across the country in their geographic areas we work with partners who truly understand the installation and delivery of data services.” These VAR agreements will provide local distribution and superior installation, maintenance and monitoring services to customers operating in all regions of Canada.
The Explosive Magazine Monitoring Solution provides clients with peace of mind in the knowledge that their magazines are safeguarded against unlawful entry and will be compliant with new Federal Governmental Regulations.
