Global Security Systems
In 1985, the founders of Global Security Systems became involved with the technology called numeric MBS protocol. The GSS founders played a very important role in lobbying to have the Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) become an approved and accepted standard in the United States. In 1993 the RBDS standard was introduced as a means of using the subcarrier to broadcast specific information that permits a receiver to tune stations.
Since 1993, other accomplishments include: working for RDS/RBDS approval in the U.S (1993), manufacturing the only RBDS FM data receiver in the U.S., installation and testing of the FM system in over 20 foreign markets, installation of an 11-State system on the Pacific Coast of the US, and negotiating and signing of the world’s first exclusive arrangement between an equipment manufacturer and a wireless communications carrier.
Today, the GSS ALERT FM system uses existing worldwide FM broadcast infrastructure to provide target area coverage using a proprietary layered and survivable communications platform. It provides secure single point to multiple point messaging which can be layered by need-to-know groupings. This is achieved with full power and signal redundancy and without the nodal vulnerability inherent in other communication systems.
