ITS Launch Support Service for COSMOS GPS

By MarEx 2014-06-20 19:22:00

International Terminal Solutions Ltd (ITS) is pleased to announce the launch of a new GPS support service for terminals using the COSMOS Terminal Operating System (TOS). The service is aimed at terminals that are finding it is becoming increasingly difficult to find replacement parts, service and support for their present legacy GPS systems. 

Many Terminals have put major GPS upgrades on hold due to the general economic climate and many of the COSMOS equipped terminals are also pending the COSMOS Suite Redevelopment (CSR) project presently underway. Quite naturally they want to continue to operate without major change to the GPS infrastructure until this is finalised.

Working with COSMOS users, ITS has engineered a set of low cost replacement components to mount on the Container Handling Equipment (CHE). This approach allows Terminals to continue with their present system but to install a modern fully supported and reliable hardware platform when the legacy system requires service or replacement on a CHE by CHE basis.

The ITS solution connects to the existing RDT unit in exactly the same way as the legacy system. It is fully compliant with the COSMOS interface specifications including the same cable connections as the legacy system, making it truly swap compatible.

In addition the ITS solution is based on the proven G-POS tracking system and as such has many advantages over the legacy systems. As you would expect these include higher levels of position precision and the ability to upgrade with several existing functions that have proven terminal operation productivity benefits.

ITS offer options for equipment supply and service exchange to allow the type of service that most cost effectively fits in with individual terminals needs.
