This paper describes an electronic tracking technology that is based on an advanced microchip system. This technology is implemented in a wide variety of ways, the most popular one is a “sticky patch” package called The Guardian Patch. The sticky patch can be affixed to any object in order to be tracked anywhere on Earth. The electronic circuit communicates with other, similar patches via a secured, encrypted private network. This system is called Guardian Tracking.
The electronic system includes a network connection for communicating with other, similar systems in a relay/mesh method through radio waves, computers, and mobile devices, including the Internet. The electronic circuit within the patch transmits signals to enable tracking anywhere on Earth – with or without GPS services. The system can store the affixed object’s details for identification purposes on mobile tracking apps. The system includes its own power source that lasts one (1) year. The system works in conjunction with a mobile software application to provide global tracking.
This paper describes the system’s components, functionalities, and method of operation from a high level perspective.
