CalAmp Selected by Navico to Enable Wireless Connectivity for Marine Applications

Marine Electronics Industry Leader Navico Engages CalAmp to Deliver Optimized Device to Power GoFree Connected Vessel System for Onboard Engines, Sensors and Navigation Data

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today announced Navico has selected CalAmp's enhanced LMU-4530™ telematics device to support Navico's new cloud-enabled GoFree™ Connected Vessel program to monitor onboard engine, sensor and navigation data. CalAmp's device management and maintenance software platform, PULS™ (Provisioning/Programming, Update and Logistical System), has also been customized to support Navico's over-the-air device management and firmware updates for vessels in port or at sea.  

"CalAmp's LMU-4530 and extensive development resources are helping to power Navico's GoFree Connected Vessel program to deliver vessel tracking, marine engine diagnostics and a comprehensive trip management program," said Phil Gaynor, Senior Telematics Product Manager at Navico. "Navico's GoFree program also includes a dynamic sonar information product that enables crews to contribute to and share cloud-based marine cartographic data to locate prime fishing locations."

"With cellular, satellite, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options, the rugged, weather-resistant LMU-4530 is ideal for an array of marine applications," said Justin Schmid, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp's Telematics Systems business.  "Equipped with actionable data, vessel operators can make more informed decisions about routes, navigation and shipboard maintenance."

The LMU-4530 is a highly intelligent platform designed to automatically switch between cellular, satellite and Wi-Fi client modes to optimize data backhaul for least cost routing, while also managing local area connectivity to peripherals through Bluetooth.  Like CalAmp's other LMU products, it employs the company's proprietary PEG™ (Programmable Event Generator), an onboard alert engine that continuously monitors a vehicle's or vessel's operating environment and status and responds instantly to pre-defined threshold conditions such as time, date, motion, locations, geo-zones, as well as data bus parameters and directly instrumented inputs.
