ITP Novex Hunting Miniature Tracking Units

I.T.P. Novex is a leading provider of miniature units that facilitate location tracking and audio monitoring within target vehicles and other objects such as parcels, vessels etc. organization’s agents on the field; and the organization’s vehicles.

The command and control center allows monitoring and control of the tracking operations through several dedicated command stations from different locations simultaneously, enabling to display the location of the target tracked vehicles/ objects, the organization’s vehicles and the organization’s agents on the field on one screen. The command stations can be operated from PCs, tablets or smartphones. Remote monitoring and location tracking data are accessible from virtually anywhere in the world.

Using a two-way communication method via cellular networks, using SMS and DATA communication, the system collects the real-time location data from the remote tracking devices based on their GPS location. The system utilizes the 2, 3 and 4G cellular networks around the globe, assuring fast, efficient, flexible, and inexpensive communication between the central command stations and the tracking devices. The system displays the real-time location of the various tracking devices on coloured digital maps and aerial photos allowing the collection of essential data regarding the real-time location of targets under surveillance, as well as learning their movement’s pattern.

Case studies

Suspicious delivery at the post office

A customer received info that a package containing drugs was about to arrive at the post office sent from abroad by regular mail. Once the customer located the package, he covertly installed a tacking unit with a microphone within this package. The unit was so configured that it would only start transmitting when the package was picked up at the post office by the target. The moment the package was picked up, the customer received a motion start alarm and turned on the microphone by calling the unit. When the unit started transmitting, the customer had both the route from the post office to the shelter location, and the voice conversation of the targets from the moment of the pickup. The targets were arrested once they arrived at their shelter. The recording of the voice conversation between the targets was brought as evidence to their trial.

Drugs shipment at the desert

In this case, a customer received info that drug dealers were about to receive a huge shipment of drugs in a deserted area, right next to the border with another country. The drug dealers’ cars were much better equipped to drive through tough deserted areas than the customer’s cars, which prevented the customer’s cars to handle a car chase race against the dealer’s cars. Being that the case, the customer covertly installed a tracking unit below the target’s (drug dealers) car. Once the target had received the drug shipment; he drove into the middle of the desert where he knew there was no cellular reception and which made him wrongfully assume that he could not be traced, dug a hole in the ground and stored the drugs inside. However, the customer had configured the tracking unit to store locations to the internal log, so that once the dealer’s cars regained cellular reception, the log would send the logged locations to the customer’s command center, giving him the exact position of where the target had stored the drugs. Later on, the customer approached the said location and successfully located the said drugs.

Terrorist attack operation

A customer was following a terrorist threat. The customer had info of a certain terrorist attack that was about to take place in a specific location, but had no info as to when this attack would happen. One month later, the customer was able to successfully prevent this attack from happening. The customer used the tracking unit which has the ability to work for an extraordinary length of time at full capacity without even having to replace its internal battery or approach the target’s vehicle; therefore making it possible for the customer to be able to follow the target’s activities for a month leading up to the attack.

Tactical mission in a foreign country

A customer was deploying an ultra-sensitive tactical mission in a foreign country. The operation got complicated to the point where the customer’s agent on the field, who had a tracking unit with a microphone attached to his body, felt his life was in danger. The moment the agent pressed the panic bottom, the chief of the operations gave an immediate command for the backup team to intervene. This intervention might have saved the agent’s life.

Tracking the customer’s cars

A customer’s unit was deploying an operation that required its own cars to be traced. This operation also required the customer’s agents to change cars frequently; while, the operation’s commander (being on the field with his agents) and the customer’s chief (being at the headquarters) could keep track on their teams on the field. In order to ensure a smooth and efficient way of tracking and given that the agents had to change cars frequently; each team was provided with a tracking unit with powerful magnets. Each tracking unit could be easily and quickly covertly-installed, and later on removed, from any given car. Each time a team changed their car, they could remove the tracking unit from the old car and install it within the new one. The operation’s commander, being at the field, was able to follow up and get a complete picture of the deployment of his teams, utilizing his smartphone or his tablet, while the customer’s chief, being at the headquarters, could do the same utilizing his laptop or PC.
