Homeland Security Technology Delivers $35,000 GPS Contract to Marine Corps
Homeland Security Technology, Inc. announced today that HST, Inc., has delivered all items ordered in conjunction with a $35,000 GPS order for Marine units preparing to deploy to Iraq.
HST, Inc. teamed with GPS World Supply to provide fulfillment of the order to the US Armed Forces. GARMIN model 76S and 76CS Hand-Held GPS models were pre-loaded by GPS World Supply of West Chicago, Ill., with Iraqi street maps and have been delivered to the Marine Corps units. These hand-held models were delivered by HST pre-packed in hardened Pelican cases along with Ram Military Vehicle Mounting devices and external antennas.
“The Marines conducted extensive due diligence before awarding HST this contract and we look forward to expanding this business to keep the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan equipped with the latest in mapping devices,” commented Mark Wilson, Director of Security Systems Division for HST, Inc. “We ran up against a terrific time crunch. Dave and his team at GPS World Supply did a superlative job in loading these models in record time against tight shipping constraints. All models were delivered to the Marines in 5 days,” continued Wilson. “The Marines were ecstatic to get their equipment delivered 3 days ahead of schedule so they could pack it out and not have to await it when they arrived in Iraq. They also ordered additional equipment which we delivered to them the next day.”
Due to operational security concerns and HST policy, information was not made available pertaining to which specific Marine Corps units received the equipment or any information on upcoming unit deployment schedules.
