Asia News:  Astrata provides vehicle tracking/immobilising to Singapore’s police force

Astrata Group recently supplied a vehicle tracking and immobilisation system for Singapore's police force, when security was boosted for the IMF and World Bank annual meeting.

Singapore's security forces were on highest alert as more than 16,000 foreign delegates from 184 countries met for the ten-day annual conference of the IMF-World Bank.

The system used Astrata's hazardous material tracking system, which it supplied to Singapore's Civil Defence Force. The police were able to monitor a fleet of cement mixers that had been granted access to a restricted area.

In the event of an emergency, the police had the capability to implement a two-stage emergency procedure: first, to activate horns and blinkers to alert the public; and, second, to activate the vehicle immobiliser, which would safely decelerate the speed of any of the vehicles that had deviated from its approved route.

According to Robin Littau, managing director of Astrata's Asia-Pacific & Middle East regions, this was a high profile project in which success was critical.

“We were very pleased with the way things ran, particularly with such tight time pressures,” said Littau. “We were also very pleased with our ability to integrate a Singapore-manufactured immobiliser and Intelligent Control Unit with Astrata's existing Intelligent Tracking System.”

The system uses Astrata's Geo-Location Platform, the world's smallest and most technologically advanced fleet management and vehicle real-time tracking device.
