Asset-tracking company ID Systems says it has secured a follow-on purchase order from a leading US airline valued at $500,000.

The contract will see ID Systems (Woodcliff Lake, NJ, USA) expand the deployment of its AvRamp-branded wireless vehicle management system (VMS) on aircraft ground support equipment.

ID Systems says the airline previously used AvRamp at two major US airports and that its follow-on order will extend the technology to a third major US airport.

“We are pleased to expand the footprint of our technology with this airline, which was our first major customer in the North American aviation market,” said Norman Ellis, the chief operating officer of ID Systems. “We believe this follow-on order reflects the effectiveness and value of our solution in airport operations, which we view as a relatively untapped market for ID Systems, with hundreds of thousands of vehicles used in airports around the world.”

We look forward to additional opportunities to expand our business with this customer, as well as other airlines, airport authorities, and aircraft service providers such as baggage handlers, catering companies and aviation fuel suppliers,” he added.

AvRamp is the airport version of ID Systems’ wireless VMS technology.

ID Systems says its ability to help control who drives what vehicle and encourage good driving habits can significantly enhance safety in an airport’s area of operations.

AvRamp has also been designed to lower fleet costs by reducing fuel usage and improving maintenance management.

The company claims it will also lead to operational efficiency gains through GPS location tracking, two-way text messaging and asset utilization analyses.
