Global Telesat bags contract for satellite-based tracking services

SHARE

US: Global Telesat Corp (GTC) has been awarded a follow-on multi-year order to provide additional satellite-based tracking and mapping services for the US premier emergency response organisation. Under this order, GTC will provide specialised satellite tracking devices, satellite airtime and online mapping capabilities as part of a disaster preparedness and emergency relief program to locate and monitor the movements of a variety of the organisation's mobile assets across the US.

Utilising a combination of GTC's online mapping portal, GTCTrack, GPS and Globalstar satellite networks, the tracking devices provided by GTC will send one-way predefined messages with their respective GPS locations and other information required by the customer to track the beginning or end of the mobile asset's journey or its movement out of a pre-authorized zone. GTC's mapping portal, GTCTrack, enables the tracking devices to be visually located and monitored by the customer in near real-time from a PC or mobile device via Google Maps interface in addition to providing historic data showing past movements of the mobile assets.
