Real-Time Vehicle Tracking

In line with increasing demand, the transport sector is also under considerable pressure to
improve driver safety and commit to sustainability initiatives. It's unsurprising then, that the
land transport and maritime industries are expected to make up 58% of all satellite IoT device
usage by 2027. With trucks, ships and trains moving in and out of cellular connectivity, fleet
managers need a robust backup when cellular is not available.

In remote regions where terrestrial communications are limited, we provide global satellite
coverage enabling continuous vehicle tracking and two-way communications.

Tracking, Monitoring and Communications for Logistics

In addition to continuous tracking and communications, Ground Control also support data transmission from various fleet sensors. By processing data related to location, motion, temperature, speed, and fuel consumption, logistics companies can plot the most fuel-efficient and safe routes and even provide better customer service – more accurate delivery updates. As connectivity is a critical element of this process, the reliability, ruggedness and interoperability of the devices used is key.

Ground Control’s devices collect your sensor data, and transmit it back to your base of operations via cellular or satellite connectivity. Meaning your solution boasts ubiquitous coverage, while ensuring data is received at the lowest cost for transmission.

Meet the RockDASH

The RockDASH Tracker, is designed for carry on carry off installation in land vehicles, and has an optional LTE Narrowband unit. This allows the use of terrestrial mobile phone networks when possible, automatically switching to the global Iridium satellite network when these are unavailable, for a truly cost-effective solution.

With 5 switch inputs for connection to on-board sensors, it’s easy to capture data on vibration, temperature and pressure, enabling predictive maintenance and powering vehicle management systems.

Benefits of Iridium Short Burst Data Service

Ideal for tracking, SBD antennas do not need to be pointed in order to pick up a satellite and they’re designed to send small packets of data frequently.

Truly Global Coverage + Low Latency

Iridium has 66 satellites in orbit around the Earth, allowing coverage anywhere on Earth 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No other satellite network has truly global coverage. Messages sent via Iridium take just seconds to reach you, via e-mail or directly to your web-service.

Customised Airtime Service Plans

Satellite airtime is more expensive than cellular - most of the time! But we make it affordable. We have great prices and we’re able to tailor all of our airtime plans to our customers' requirements, so you only pay for the data you use.

Regular Usage Reviews to Manage Costs

Once you're with Ground Control, we'll proactively review your usage to make sure that you remain on the right plan for your requirements. This helps to ensure that you don't end up paying expensive overage costs for going out-of-plan.

Manage GPS device data with Cloudloop

The Cloudloop platform puts you in control of your devices and data.

Our devices, including the RockDASH, send data direct to Cloudloop, where you can access all features, visualise the data on a map, send/receive messages, and export data to Excel. With well documented and easy to use APIs, partners and customers also have the option to integrate directly into their eco system. Meaning other services such as maps and weather patterns can be layered over the data supplied, for an enriched view of fleet operations.

Cloudloop Feature 3

With Cloudloop, users can also manage subscriptions and organise data pooling, ultimately putting cost control in your hands.


  • Remote activation/deactivation of devices
  • Set limits to automatically suspend devices
  • Create custom alerts for usage & expenditure
  • View usage and billing data in real-time

“We wanted to offer our customers a choice of hardware for their tracking and communication needs, and chose to integrate with Ground Control because of their justified reputation for reliability, and the ease of integration with our software.”
