View Glossary Index

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system operating with coded signals over communication channels so as to provide control of remote equipment (using typically one communication channel per remote station). The control system may be combined with a data acquisition system by adding the use of coded signals over communication channels to acquire information about the status of the remote equipment for display or for recording functions. It is a type of industrial control system (ICS). Industrial control systems are computer-based systems that monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. SCADA systems historically distinguish themselves from other ICS systems by being large-scale processes that can include multiple sites, and large distances.

How much does satellite tracking cost & how does it compare to GSM

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...

I hear it is different, but what is the GSatMicro?

To start with, the Micro is not specifically a tracking device, it is a processing engine that has access to transmit and receive data over the global Iridium satellite network, position information, sensors, etc. It has a very powerful virtual machine on board that allows realtime processing of scripts by compiling and executing without any external tools. The basic scripts on the unit will power up GPS, get a position, and then compress and...
