Hackensack, NJ, January 11, 2010—I.D. Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDSY), a provider of wireless asset management solutions, today announced that it has received a follow-on purchase order from American Eagle Airlines, Inc., a subsidiary of AMR Corporation (NYSE: AMR), to expand deployment of I.D. Systems’ AvRamp® Wireless Vehicle Management System on a fleet of aircraft ground support equipment (GSE) at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The order follows American Eagle’s initial implementation of the AvRamp system on a large fleet of GSE at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in 2009.
The AvRamp system—which was developed in part through funding from the Transportation Security Administration, and which is TSA- and FAA-approved for use at U.S. Airports—provides a wide range of safety, security and operational management functions to address common industry challenges for airport vehicles, including: automatic, on-vehicle driver authentication; electronic vehicle safety inspection checklists; vehicle speed monitoring and impact sensing; real-time equipment visibility with geo-fencing boundaries that define “off-limits” areas; automatic fuel conservation functions; and multiple data reporting tools designed to optimize fleet utilization.
“We are delighted that American Eagle has achieved immediate benefits from AvRamp at DFW and rapidly forged ahead with plans to deploy our system at O’Hare — the world’s second busiest airport,” said Peter Fausel, I.D. Systems’ executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer service. “AvRamp is a unique, multi-faceted tool to improve safety, security, productivity, and operational cost efficiency for fleets of ground support equipment. We look forward to continue helping American Eagle generate a compelling return on investment from our patented AvRamp technology.”
