The BlackBox Story

Our founding partners have been pioneers in the GSM/Cellular industry and have been involved with GPS Technology ever since the first satellites were commercially available in Australia. The formation of BlackBox Control in 2002 has allowed us to build on this wealth of experience to offer world class products and solutions to our customers.

We began by partnering with established hardware makers and developed a wide range of interfaces to support our customers needs. Our clients value quality data. Limitations in that hardware means today we commission our own hardware, firmware and applications to provide our clients with the powerful and sophisticated GPS tracking and telematics tools they need.

Our aim is to ensure that we offer the best solution possible to a customers specific needs. The business intelligence reporting we have available to you means that your asset is more than just a dot on the map.
