REVENUE STREAM POTENTIAL:
Define a fee for RAID's single contact
initiative to totally assume LE support for each vehicle
manufacturers stolen vehicle recovery activities where GPS equipped.
LE assistance would be streamlined, higher recoveries would improve
manufacturer's image and sell more nav options.
Define a fee method to add the 15+ aftermarket
GPS sources to RAID's active monitoring
After demonstrating RAID success,
individual municipalities and/or states would
likely budget for RAID support or agree to charging $1-$5 per
vehicle at vehicle registration/re-registration to fund RAID,
especially in the 10 states having 60% or 411,000 of the total 2014
If the RAID initiative ultimately supports developing of a
"tamper-proof" add-on GPS package, inseparably coupled to the vehicles
computer/processor, the sky would be the limit on RAID's
revenue potential. Active RAID monitoring could apply to a
(43,000 stolen in 2014), construction equipment, mobile home, airplane, power
boat, etc. Multi-millions in total!
addition to conventional vehicles, who would not pay $1-$3 per month
or an annual fee for each scooter, snowmobile, jet ski, etc.
just to know it is secured where it is supposed to be.
If the Black Box now in every vehicle is GPS
capable, as proposed, RAID's potential population of
monitored cars and trucks alone could exceed 300 or 400 million in
the US in a few years.
Demonstrated RAID success could lead to a nationwide inter-state
network of GPS monitoring funded by Federal Programs, especially if
recovery success grows via NCIC interaction.
tracking expand to other countries, previously stolen US
vehicles could be located outside the US and that countrys law
enforcement involved in recovery, especially effective if in 8 - 10
years every new vehicle was manufactured with a tamperproof GPS
