Geospatial Underground Tracking Solution (GUTS)
Increasingly, clandestine tunnels under our southern and northern borders continue to be a problem for illicit smuggling operations.
The Q-Track Geospatial Underground Tracking System (GUTS) provides real time positioning of robotic equipment and first
responder personnel operating in a GPS and short range radio-frequency denied areas. GUTS is capable of deployment in a variety of
underground environments from sewage systems to interdicted, cross-border tunnels deep underground. Easy to operate, the
underground asset can be located in minutes and a spatial map generated for evidentiary usage as well as tunnel remediation efforts
such as drilling. In Phase II, we will deploy our prototype GUTS system at interdicted tunnels in the U.S. Southwest sectors.
Incorporating feedback from CBP and ICE end users, we will then fabricate a ruggedized GUTS system according to operational
requirements generated in conjunction with the San Diego, Nogales, and El Paso Tunnel task forces. Finally, Q-Track will integrate its
GUTS system with robotic platforms suitable for deployment in challenging cross-border tunnel environments. The Phase II effort is
intended to bring GUTS from its current TRL of 6 to a TRL of 9.
