General Electric Co. (GE) and Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) today announced the signing of an agreement to develop an integrated system to protect shipping containers. GE VeriWise (GEV), an asset-tracking system, is already in use as a security device for over-the-road trailers.

Both companies have independently developed technologies for monitoring and tracking containers and other assets. Through the partnership, these technologies will integrate into a system that not only tracks but reports intrusion attempts through any of the six sides of the container, according to GE.

“We’re excited to extend our GEV system beyond trailers to other mobile assets,” said Andrew Greta, GE Equipment Services general manager of asset intelligence. “This agreement marks a natural growth of our technology to address other cargo security challenges, particularly at ports and other border points.”
