Ninja Go to New York
Our latest test for the Ninja container and asset tracking solution has landed in New York after a week long journey across the Atlantic.
The Ninja tracker used was the 3 month extended battery tracker with hardshell waterproof pelicase and heavy duty magnets, also included is the mains charger for recharging the battery pack – A complete container solution which costs just £265 on a pay as you go format or £450 with an inclusive data package that provides 25,000 positions.
The tracker was inserted into the container which then left London and went down to Southampton docks, Ninja deployed the 3 month pelicase extended battery tracker into the container before it was closed and sealed.
Here we can see the extended battery tracker that was deployed into the container, it is slightly longer than an iPhone –
Amazing GPS Performance
What is impressive in this operation is that not only did the tracker punch its GPS signal out from the sealed container we were also able to interact with the tracker and set the GEO zones, change the position rates and set the motion detection multiple times without failure.
We set the tracker to 1 minute position reporting for the test so we could gather as much data as possible and then watched the journey down to Southampton docks where we had the first GEO fence set.
The tracker emitted its signal perfectly and the GEO fence was broken as the container entered the docks with the alerts going out to telephone numbers and emails. We watched the container being unloaded with 10 second live tracking set and we very pleased with the consistent position data, remember this tracker is in a 40ft sealed container.
Off To New York
After two days the container was loaded onto the ship and off it went on its journey across the Atlantic, we asked the client not to inform us of the expected docking date and we then set a GEO fence on the port in New Jersey.
Sure enough just over a week later the GEO fence was broken and the alerts came in, we logged onto the control panel and set the tracker back to live tracking to stress test the signal. We didn’t need to worry the tracker performed seamlessly and punched the GPS out through the container and back to our secure server.
GPS Tracking USA
Because the Ninja tracking solution offers pretty much global connectivity we were able to enjoy a smooth transition from the UK service provider to the US service provider and the SIM didn’t miss a heartbeat.
Three days later we watched the container move to the customs office and now it is awaiting its onward journey.
All in all the test has been incredible, the tracking was seamless and the interactivity was very impressive with us initiating multiple command changes throughout its journey to really push the tracker in what is a very difficult environment (sealed container).
The Ninja Container Solution
The Ninja Tracker lived up to all expectations and the robust waterproof pelicase stuck to the inside rib like it was welded, the four 35kg pull magnets mean that you need real strength to move the tracker from its location. We also have initiated a second test with the tracker in a more covert deployment and this is also thumping signal out and will also be a success.
Here is a pictorial story of the journey showing positions and data.
Ninja Go To USA in Pictures
OK we start with tracking our actual journey down to the client in Surrey and a faultless track down the A12 to Chelmsford -
Next we move across the bridge at Dartford and head round to Surrey -
The tracker is deployed into the container, tested and then sealed, we used 140 kg of magnetic pull for the test and at 13.00 hours the doors close and all is ready. Next image is the tracker arriving at Southampton docks before being lifted from the trailer.
The container is now parked at the dockside for a few days before loading onto the ship, motion detection is set to check for tampering, any opening of the doors or movement of the container itself will send alerts immediately -
Here we can see the container movements before it is loaded onto the ship ready for its journey across the Atlantic -
A week later the tracker breaks the GEO fence we set at the New Jersey harbour and the container arrives in New York -
The container with its Ninja tracker is unloaded and makes its way to a customs warehouse before being parked again -
The container now sits on the dockside awaiting its loading and onward movement via the road network to its destination a few hundred kilometres away from the port, the container will be tracked to its destination using 60 second tracking which is quickly set from the secure user control panel.
So the GPS industry said ‘It Cannot Be Done’ and Ninja have proved that not only can it be done but it can be done cost effectively so that a portfolio of containers can be armed with this protection and a very low cost – Call Ninja Now – You know it makes sense – Ask for Joe Dunn on 01206 848823
