"We are very proud to accept this award from Subsentio," said Jude O'Sullivan, Chief Customer Officer of Carolina West Wireless. "Thanks to the remarkable technologies we host, a very worrisome incident for the boys and their familieswas brought to a safe and happy conclusion."

"This event can help boost awareness of how systems designed to apprehend criminals and terrorists are equally important to the work of first responders," said Steve Bock, President and CEO of Subsentio. "Not for the first time, advanced technology saved lives."

The rescue operation unfolded on the afternoon of March 3, 2019. While hiking on the state park's "Mountains to the Sea Trail," the two boys went off trail, lost their way and dialed 911 on their smartphone for help. Carolina West went into action, deploying GPS location and radio frequency (RF) triangulation to determine the youth's location, precisely position rescuers in a 14,351-acre state park, and find the teens before night fell and temperatures plunged. When the lost boys emerged from the woods, the rescue team was there to meet them.
