The Iridium SBD 9602-AB is a small and discreet ultra-low power consumption Iridium satellite asset tracker, weighing just 227g.
The Iridium 9602-AB is a pocket sized, self-contained satellite based asset tracker designed to operate on the Iridium low-earth orbit satellite network, resulting in 100% global coverage. It offers two way transmission capability and features internal Iridium and GPS antennas, micro-controller and a rechargeable lithium battery capable of transmitting up to 1,500 tracking reports on one charge.
The 9602-AB is ideally suited for the tracking of high value ground and sea based assets such as vehicles, vessels, railcars and shipping containers or for aeronautical tracking on helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. It is also suitable for tracking environmentally demanding platforms including buoys, unmanned aerial vehicles, rockets and even high altitude balloons.
The Iridium SBD 9602-AB offers the following features:
The 9602-AB satellite asset tracker operates on the Iridium satellite network. This is the only commercial satellite network in the world to offer 100% truly global coverage, meaning the 9602-AB can show the location of your asset, wherever it travels across the globe.
Standard Messaging Mode
The 9602-AB satellite asset tracker is equipped with Location Based Services (LBS) enabling GPS positioning. The device is capable of transmitting its GPS coordinates from anywhere on the globe.
The 9602-AB can be used for overt or covert tracking and is capable of transmitting GPS coordinates from as little as every 4 seconds at altitudes of up to 164,000 feet and velocity of 500m per second.
It is capable of sending either standard or 256-bit AES encrypted GPS reports at pre-programmed intervals ranging from once every four seconds to once every seven days. This reporting interval and other device settings can be changed remotely while the unit is in the field.
Dust & Water Resistant
The 9602-AB satellite asset tracker is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions.
The 9602-AB satellite asset tracker is equipped with a programmable emergency button that activates critical, rapid response when you need it most. When pressed, the SOS button transmits your GPS coordinates and alerts your pre-specified contacts that you require assistance.
Using the two-way Iridium satellite constellation, the 9602-AB satellite asset tracker offers a ‘Follow-Me’ function. This enables you to ping the device, wherever it is located in the world, and instruct it to transmit its current GPS coordinates and status (device must be turned on with a satellite connection to enable this feature to function correctly).
In conjunction with GTCTrack, GTC’s online mapping portal, the Iridium SBD 9602-AB satellite asset tracker offers a geo-fencing feature. This allows you to predefine a set of geographical boundaries and be alerted by email when the device enters or exits the geo-fenced area.
Our online mapping portal can track your 9602-AB to provide real-time information via your GPS location. Any person provided with the login can become an operator to monitor any number of GSM or satellite assets simultaneously in-real time and historically on both the Basic and Professional plans.
Key benefits include:
- Geo-Fencing capabilities (Professional Plan only)
- Alert options available, with varying degrees of urgency for operator and device holder
- Global Tracking
- Multiple layer options and map views
- Inclusive to all devices with GPS tracking capabilities
- Past-tracking data points are always accessible, until the device is de-activated
- Mapping and asset grouping customisation options are available
- Data Reporting and Scheduling functions
- Notifications and alerts can be sent directly to the holder of the device
GTCTrack Basic Mapping
Available from just £6.50 ex VAT a month per device and provides location-based data from your device to the online maps. The tracking equipment determines its location by triangulating a position using GPS (Global Positioning System) and then transmits this information via GSM, Satellite, or VHF to a central server for processing.
- Suitable for users with single devices
- Excludes Geo-Fencing
- Pay upfront annually to receive a discounted subscription of £65 ex VAT per year
GTCTrack Professional Mapping
Available from just £12.50 ex VAT month per device and allows you to track multiple devices on the same map in addition to features available on the Basic plan. This plan is essential for businesses or organisers managing multiple devices to be able to track the movements of individuals and assets.
- Suitable for users requiring access to multiple devices under one login
- Inlcudes Geo-Fencing
- Fee is applicable per device
- Pay upfront annually to receive a discounted subscription of £140 ex VAT per year
