Meet WTS Positioning Solutions (Trax)

Continuing on with our current feature series, in today’s article we will be taking a look into WTS Positioning Solutions (Trax).

Who Are WTS Positioning Solutions?

WTS Positioning Solutions (Trax), founded in 2012, develops high precision real-time tracking devices. Since 2012, the company has launched six generations of Trax to the market and gained considerable experience through work with British Telecom, Swisscom, Honda Logistics, Precision Hawk and other high-profile partners.

Michel Bracké, CEO of Trax, is a Harvard Business School Alumni and specialised within the telecom and consumer electronics industry, in which he has worked for nearly 25 years.

How Does Trax Utilise Drones?

As of 2020 the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/945 & Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 will be in effect, stipulating that drones will need to be remotely & individually identifiable. WTS provides a turnkey civil drones GPS package which provides a simple, lightweight & cost-effective third-party identification and tracking solution to support the safe, secure and sustainable operation of drones.

Additionally, several forward-thinking companies have developed platforms to enable drone pilots to follow their UAV’s in real-time, set geofences, and ensure they don’t wander off into no-fly zones. WTS supports these platforms through the integration of its small, lightweight GPS trackers in a simple and cost-effective way.

Who is Trax Partnered With?

At only 26g, Trax is the lightest real-time device on the market, combining a precise, real-time GPS tracker with a small aerodynamic form factor which minimizes the impact on drone battery life. Trax is also able to send second by second position updates, which combined with its unique size and ease of integration, has led to some key partnerships.

Precision Hawk is a company supplying drones, software and sensors for multiple industries. Precision Hawk selected WTS as their preferred partner to deliver customised tracking software and hardware, connecting the GPS trackers directly to their servers, using a secure connection.
