“The market potential for the technology in airline baggage handling alone that tracks luggage from check in to pickup is enormous,” said Steve Bazsuly, FSBO Media Holdings chairman. “The tag security system does not prevent the unauthorized removal of a tag but it does prevent the removed tag from going unnoticed.”
Such is the impetus for FSBO Media Holdings (FSMH) to acquire TOTALtrak, a small biz with personal security technology applications that will assist the military, law enforcement, and other public safety workers in tracking baggage – and people (namely children and the elderly).
“When the protected tag is removed, the tag’s identifying characteristics are altered,” he explains. “The system recognizes the change and immediately transmits date/time-stamped alerts to the command console and asset custodian.”

Steve Bazsuly, Chairman of FSMH said, “The potential of TOTALtrak is huge as the markets over the next three to five years will grow to more than $3 billion annually. The market potential for the technology in airline baggage handling alone that tracks luggage from check in to pickup is enormous.

TOTALtrak’s Multiple Range Identification (MRID) system transmits multiple codes, which allows it to do everything standard RFID does with added functionality of determining direction and proximity of the tag to the reader. RFID tags transmit the tag’s presence and identity; and MRID tags transmit the tag’s presence, identity, distance and direction.
TOTALtrak is comprised of an MRID Asset Tracking System which handles asset tracking, remote data storage and communications; and includes a Data Management System, which handles asset monitoring and historical data storage.
