AbstractInternational Electronic Machines Corp. (IEM), a leader in sensor and GIS technology, will design and prove the feasibility of a Cargo Container Tracking and Monitoring System (C2TMS) which will: uniquely ID each and every container, track container positions to within one foot or less under all conditions using unique, innovative RF localization and digital processing techniques, categorize and track the manifest of the container, provide I/O to sensors on containers for status data (tampering, leakage, temperature, etc.), and provide secure access to all data for any and all containers from a central location in real-time. The C2TMS will consist of a unique Cargo Container Tag with both passive and active functions, Tracking and Monitoring Units which will localize and monitor all containers and their status, a Local Transciever/Data Network(LTDN) which will maintain a realtime 3-D map of the container locations, and a Main Data Center,updated by the LTDNs on vessels or in storage facilities, which will track and access all info on all containers at all times. IEM will be assisted in this design by personnel from NASA¿s JPL and by data and resources from MapInfo.
