Orion Asset Tracking System

Orion hardware comes in many different forms depending on the clients requirements. All tracking devices are designed and built in the UK.

Port security & container tracking

Orion asset tracking devices can be deployed across ports and shipping containers for real-time asset tracking and on-site asset visibility solutions. Reduce asset tracking costs by up to 75% compared to other technologies. Monitor assets in real-time, temperature, speed, shock, motion and much more. Orion GPS tags last for 3 years on a single D cell battery.

Lone worker security

Orion based lone worker solutions offer tangible benefits. Safeguard lone workers with real-time monitoring. Instantaneous man down and SOS alerts, panic buttons and direct links to the operations team. Reduce costs, increase onsite productivity, maintain and monitor employees’ welfare in real-time.

High value critical assets

The Orion Network was developed and has evolved from within the security sector. Small, long lasting Orion Tags are in constant operation around the world safeguarding assets in transit, high value assets, and mission critical supply chain assets. Orion technology is highly resistant to jamming techniques and comes equipped with unique black box beacon mode for asset recovery anywhere in the world. Orion security tags reduced theft by 94% in just three months at a university,  campus and the scheme won a Home Office award for innovation.

Plant & Construction Security

Orion based lone worker solutions offer tangible benefits. Safeguard lone workers with real-time monitoring. Instantaneous man down and SOS alerts, panic buttons and direct links to the operations team. Reduce costs, increase onsite productivity, maintain and monitor employees’ welfare in real-time.

Oil & Gas asset visibility

This is one of the Orion Network’s core markets. Many oil and gas supply chain companies currently use the Orion network. Low cost real-time asset visibility streamlines operations and increases revenue. Unlimitedly scalable asset visibility benefiting from a single purpose built online management platform.

Wildlife tracking solutions

NFC Group is very proud to be helping to preserve the African Black Rhino. Orion offers comprehensive bespoke design wildlife tracking solutions that can be deployed anywhere in the world. Because of the inherent accuracy of the system, physically small asset tracking tags, and incredibly long battery life, the Orion network is swiftly replacing older and often expensive satellite solutions.

Supply chain visibility

This is the centre of the Orion world. Reduce costs, increase productivity, monitor and analyse asset data in real-time. Be notified when and where in the supply chain assets are involved in an incident. Shock reports, tilt, temperature, preventive theft technology and proven asset recovery when required.

Care Homes & Hospitals

One of NFC Group’s fastest growing sectors due to advanced client monitoring technologies offered by the Orion Network. Monitor your clients in real-time and analyze anomalies in data to understand behaviour patterns and pre-empt falls, substinance and hydration intake. Proximity alarms, geo fencing and SOS functions. Safeguard employees and vulnerable patients in real-time.

Smart Metering

The Iot M2M market is one of fastest growing markets on earth with a huge and accelerating demand for remote meter reading technologies. NFC is currently deploying via channel thousands of IoT meters a month across the UK the EU and SEA.

Local & District Councils

States, County Councils, District Councils, and local Councils control multi-million budgets. They have fleets of vehicles, plant, and equipment: they also employ tens of thousands of staff. The use of Orion allows real-time monitoring of every local government asset, providing access to huge savings.

Universities & Colleges

The Orion asset tracking network serves as a formidable security system thats is also integrates with other security systems such as CCTV for further asset protection and supporting evidence. Deployed at Portsmouth university, the campus security team record a 94% reduction in crime after just 90 days in operation. Monitor, secure, track and recover site assets, even in remote and harsh environments.

Plant & Construction Security 

This is where the Orion Network really scores. The plant and construction sector is traditionally tracked and secured by GSM tracking devices. However, plant equipment such as tractors, diggers and power tools remain a billion pound a year theft industry with many criminals now employing highly advanced counter tracking technologies. GSM tracking devices are traditionally around £300 in their first year of operation. Orion can reduce these costs by up to 75%. At the same time Orion dramatically increasing onsite productivity and asset recovery rates.
