In the brief span of five years ELSAG now serves nearly 600 clients and has its MPH-900® present in all 50 states.

“In such a short amount of time we are very pleased to be providing our cutting-edge technology which helps keep our streets safe to our customers across the whole country,” said Mark Windover, president and CEO of ELSAG. “Having all of our production now being done in the U.S. allows us to reduce costs dramatically, which helps us do best what we pride ourselves on most, customer service.”
Among other applications, the MPH-900® system has been instrumental in the conviction of murderers, in the apprehension of sex offenders violating parole, recuperating unpaid taxes and recovering stolen vehicles. MPH-900® systems have many applications and have not only aided in traffic safety, but intelligence gathering as well.
