Jake and Luke -aboard their Lagoon 500 Three Little Birds will be tracked
by a GOST Nav-Tracker GPS Tracking System.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – The Nav-Tracker GPS tracking system from boat security systems supplier Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST – formerly Paradox Marine) will be used to monitor the progress of Three Little Birds, a Lagoon 500 catamaran, on a unique three-year circumnavigation.
Boat captain Scott Leonard and his family (wife Mandi, sons Griffin, Jake and Luke) will set sail in July and throughout the voyage, Scott plans to become “The Mobile CEO” – running his multi-million dollar financial services firm while sailing around the world on his 50 foot yacht.
"With so many people interested in following the progress of our trip, having GOST's Nav-Tracker GPS tracking system on our boat is critical to providing up to date, fully automated location information. Add to that the peace of mind provided with the geofence when we have to leave the boat in remote locations to return home for work,” said Scott Leonard.
GOST Nav-Tracker can be used to track a vessel (or an entire fleet) from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. A boat’s precise voyage and exact location can be viewed on Google Earth and as new reports come in from the Nav-Tracker, they are automatically updated to the site.
“With Nav-Tracker installed aboard Three Little Birds, we have an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the unique vessel tracking and monitoring capabilities of our system around the world,” said GOST President Jay Keenan.
When a Nav-Tracker transmitter is mounted on a vessel vessel and armed, a wireless ‘geo-fence’ with a 500-meter radius is created. If a boat is moved outside of this fence, Nav-Tracker uses Inmarsat based GPS satellite technology to monitor a boat’s location and notify up to ten people by email and/or text message every 2 minutes with the exact latitude/longitude, speed and heading of the vessel.
