possible, and hundreds of ATLAS PLs may be in the same area operating without
interference. The ATLAS PL is part of Raveon’s RavTrack family of
real-time GPS tracking products. Raveon offers complete solutions for
personal tracking, vehicle tracking, and all system components required to
build a complete GPS tracking system.

a manually activated Alert button and a Critical Alert feature allow dispatch

many weeks of operation with less frequent update rates.
4. Broad Range of Software Options. – Raveon’s RavTrack products

GlobalMapper, and Google Earth. See http://ravtrack.com/AVL-Software
