Personal Satellite Trackers

Whether you're a remote worker, soldier, or simply travelling outside mobile phone range
frequently, or for an extended period of time, it's vital you think about connectivity. For both
safety and security, GPS satellite tracking can prove invaluable.

Ground Control delivers faultless tracking and communication services via satellite, so you and
your team are covered anywhere, anytime.

Simple GPS Satellite Tracking

For adventurers, field workers, expedition leaders or in remote race organisers, determining a tracking and communication plan is vital. This reduces the chance of accidents (source: LoneAlert), ensures swift response times in the case of an emergency and delivers real peace of mind.

With unparalleled reach, reliability and security, satellite connectivity is the obvious solution for those venturing out of cellular range.

Hello RockSTAR

The RockSTAR Two-Way Messenger is a truly global communication and personal tracking device. With an astonishingly long battery life, ruggedised and waterproof, the RockSTAR is a vital handheld safety device that allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky.

The tracker wakes up on a regular basis, obtains your position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmits that position back to Ground Control HQ in seconds using the Iridium satellite network. The message is relayed to us from Iridium and then we visualise the positions on an easy-to-use web-based viewer.

In recent applications with our partners, the RockSTAR has enabled heart-rate and air quality monitoring, and workforce management solutions.

Nigel Kenyon, Head of Tracking Services, JCSys
