Fleet management includes commercial motor vehicles such as cars, aircraft (planes, helicopters etc.), ships, vans and trucks, as well as rail cars. Fleet (vehicle) management can include a range of functions, such as vehicle financing, vehicle maintenance, vehicle telematics (tracking and diagnostics), driver management, speed management, fuel management and health and safety management. Fleet Management is a function which allows companies which rely on transportation in business to remove or minimize the risks associated with vehicle investment, improving efficiency, productivity and reducing their overall transportation and staff costs, providing 100% compliance with government legislation (duty of care) and many more.
There are quite a few satellite terminals in the market that enable all of the standard features that one would expect from a tracking device. Over the years, engineers of Global Satellite Engineering (GSE) have listened to challenges presented by customers and have analyzed the corresponding technology shortcomings. GSE’s GSatMicro series was developed to fill these voids in the market and exceed industry standards in the following areas:... More
In today’s world, a Controller Area Network (CAN) is used in diverse industrial machinery which may consist of multiple... More
Safety and productivity in the workplace primarily depend on employees’ health. The road transportation industry in particular, has various hazards that potentially impact the psychological as well as the physical well-being of drivers. Shortage of quality sleep, night time driving, working and being awake for an extended period of time are the key causes of fatigue. It has been discovered that being fatigued significantly increases the risk... More
Being able to create and monitor routes drivers take is an important part of fleet management operations. GSatTrack supports a number of methods to assign and monitor routes vehicles take.
The first, most fully-featured method is integration with a portable navigation device (PND) such as a Garmin screen installed in the vehicle. When a PND is installed in the vehicle, GSatTrack can offer real-time, two-way communications between the... More
Messaging is often a critical aspect of asset tracking and fleet management for customers across a variety of industries. Timely and secure communication is key to running safe, efficient operations. With GSatTrack, a variety of options for communication are available: two-way communication between users in the field and portal operators; between users in the field and email/SMS contacts; and directly between users in the field, even those using...

You might be surprised at the how differently satellite and GSM terminals operate to remain competitive on airtime. There are applications where the airtime costs are identical to GSM solutions, which are regarded as the lowest cost solution in the industry. Hardware pricing is still more expensive than GSM solutions simply based on the complexity, volume of terminals, and transmission distance and power to the satellite. This does have an... More
Over the last 15 years, Global Satellite Engineering Inc. (GSE) has been one of the key players in the Satellite Communications world, by bringing a range of unique, reliable and innovative products as well as services to various industries.
The smallest self-contained Iridium tracker in the world.
The GSatMicro is a powerful, small, customizable, self-contained Iridium tracker. It transmits positions, SOS alerts and other specialized information through its industry-leading satellite antenna and electronics technology to be monitored and analyzed in real time. Configuration capabilities enable the support of any asset and type of information, allowing the GSatMicro to be used in many different applications.
The GSatMicro is a tracking solution that is extremely small yet very versatile. It is a fully scriptable device with eLua so any average user, or our own engineers, can rapidly design scripts to support any user application. Interconnecting the device with other hardware, user input interfaces, monitoring hardware, or environment data becomes very simple. Charging is supported over USB or regular DC voltage for versatility, includes a serial port for programming and control, SiRF V GPS with Galileo + GLONASS support, Bluetooth 4.0, two inputs, two outputs, accelerometer, and digital compass.

Tracking the Safety of Mining Workers in the Sub-Saharan Countryside
Any company operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) can tell you one thing with certainty – the country lacks some of the infrastructure that is needed for operating safely and efficiently. While it is a country with vast resources, according to a 2011 study by The World Bank, the country had less than 3,000 kilometers of paved roads while the remaining 30,000 kilometers is largely unpaved and in various stages of accessibility.
