White Paper describes a concept for securing ocean containers with a reusable security tag.
The reusable tagging of containers allows more effective monitoring for security and
the worldwide location of containers using Low Earth Orbit satellites. Reusable tagging,
offered by carriers to shipping customers on a one time rental basis, provides low cost
complete security and location information for the containers. The information is continuously
available from the satellites by way of a restricted Internet site, providing information
of door openings, stowaways, container transport, temperature and nuclear radiation
(optional). Rental cost is expected to be only a few percent added to the usual shipping
cost for international transport of containers. Benefits include immediate implementation
using existing satellites and present Internet data networks and almost immediate ROIs
to carriers renting the reusable tags. Data could be made available to customs officers
worldwide and to logistics personel and carriers involved for a more rapid handling of tagged containers.
Green-Lane customs handling appeal is greatest for Retail Merchandising
Organizations wishing to not have their shipments slowed in the increasing need for
more security in international container shipping.

Power Point Presentation shows currently developed ANTS™ concept and devices and their utilization
for tagging ocean containers. Simplicity of concept for ANTS™ tagging is a main feature.
No major expenditures or international port authority cooperation is necessary for implementation.
Presentation shows how tags are attached and the flow of data through the existing satellite
network and the Internet connection. Also shown is the unique capability of ANTS™ to convey
its data outside of warehouses or from within the canyons of stacks of containers
otherwise preventing satellite up-link signals from going directly to the satellites.
