Real-time GPS Event tracking
Ground Control delivers adventure and race organizations, and competitors, satellite-enabled solutions that promote safety and effective team coordination.
We provide the hardware and airtime to support GPS tracking, two-way communications and satellite broadband, in some of the most remote locations and extreme environmental conditions. From yacht racing to car rallies, we keep your team and event HQ connected.
Designed to be instantly attached to any vehicle roof, the small, lightweight BGAN terminal - Explorer 323 - can provide rich satellite communications in the most challenging of environments; tested to the highest standards for temperature, water and dust. Similarly, the Thales Mission LINK 700 boasts a robust design and highly reliable connectivity across the entire globe, via the Iridium Certus broadband service.
Two-way Messaging & Tracking
Alternatively, the RockFLEET Tracker, designed for installation on assets such as yachts and vehicles, 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.
Global satellite broadband
For higher bandwidth demands, the Toughsat T-100 communications trailer delivers internet speeds of 5 Mbps x 20 Mbps and is also the easiest to use multi-functional trailer we know of.
Why choose Ground Control for extreme racing event tracking?
Irrespective of whether your event takes place on land, air or sea, if your competitors and Event HQ have a clear view of the sky, they will be able to transmit and receive data using satellite connectivity.
We work with a number of exceptional companies, both for hardware devices such as the Kymeta u8, and for software applications. Our partners allow us to offer end-to-end solutions for almost any requirement.
Design and build
We are proud to manufacture the Rock series of products, giving us control over the whole process, and maintaining the highest production quality. We can also customize devices to customers' needs, and your feedback shapes our roadmap.
