Britech has developed software to extend battery life up to 10+ hours, according to president and CEO Brian Reid. Each team will be equipped with a unit that will act as the team’s “baton”. Race rules dictate how the GPS units are to be used. Software is also being developed to monitor units that are stationary or exceed a sustained threshold, and warn race referees of units that deviate from the race route.
