Satellite Tracking Explained

Globaltrack is an industry-leading partner of the Iridium Satellite System. The Iridium system consists of a constellation of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites. Originally, the constellation comprised 66 operational satellites, with several in-orbit spares. In recent years, Iridium has upgraded its constellation to include additional satellites, enhancing coverage and capacity. The Iridium satellite system is a global satellite communications network that enables our devices to connect to and communicate data from any point on Earth via our award-winning Webtrack Fleet Management Software which fleet managers can access from their mobile devices or PC. This means that you are guaranteed connectivity to your fleet assets, regardless of where they might roam.

GPS: What is it?

GPS stands for Global Positioning System. It is a satellite-based navigation system that provides data from anywhere on or near the Earth's surface, 24 hours a day, in all weather conditions, anywhere in the world.

Reliable and rugged satellite tracking for trucks

How it is powered?

Our Satellite Tracking Devices (DUO) are built for African conditions. Reliable, rugged and tamper-proof, the DUO is designed to be OEM-compatible with a backup-up battery as part of the standard installation.

Guaranteed connectivity to your drivers and fleet

Is it guaranteed?

Because connectivity via Satellites is not dependent on GSM-coverage, you are guaranteed that you will have 24/7 visibility on your fleet, drivers, cargo and assets even in area with low or no cell phone reception.
