Galileo is the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that is currently being created by the European Union (EU) and the European Space Agency (ESA). The €5 billion project is named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei. One of the aims of Galileo is to provide an indigenous alternative high-precision positioning system upon which European nations can rely, independently from the Russian GLONASS and US GPS systems, in case they were disabled by their operators. The use of basic (low-precision) Galileo services will be free and open to everyone. The high-precision capabilities will be available for paying commercial users. Galileo is intended to provide horizontal and vertical position measurements within 1-metre precision, and better positioning services at high latitudes than other positioning systems.
GSE's handheld integration of the OEM is established as the smallest self-contained Iridium tracker in the world!
Environmentally sealed, the GSatMicro is a handheld satellite terminal that is suitable for the harshest and most challenging environments that are far from the reach of most communications systems. The GSatMicro provides personnel communications equipment that is exceptionally secure, light, reliable, portable, and rugged, with the addition of added behavior control. The GSatMicro brings together powerful electronics with an intelligent core to create an extremely versatile unit that can detect and communicate the behavior of assets in the field.
The GSatMicro Series is a suite of intelligent satellite terminals that provide behavior monitoring and management of fixed and mobile assets around the globe. Learn more by visiting the product site:
In its handheld form factor, the GSatMicro is the world’s smallest and lightest, self-contained Iridium satellite communications terminal. With the inclusion of the - GSatMicro OEM, a rechargeable battery, an antenna, I/O ports, Bluetooth and GSM modules - absolutely everything you need is built in and very simple to interface with to a multitude of connectivity options. Within the ruggedized case resides an programmable intelligence capable of letting you know more than just the location of an asset but the behavior of the asset and how the world around it is affecting it. In essence, the GSatMicro is not just a tracking device, it is a powerful processing engine in the smallest and lightest form available on the market today.
Additionally, it includes on-device behavior control and intelligence that allows it to perform logic and data analysis. With the ability to provide automated reporting, it comes standard with an Alert and check in button. LEDs let you know when the device is connected to GPS and the Iridium satellite network, as well as Alert, incoming messages and power status.
The GSatMicro provides strategic integration capabilities for diverse applications ideal for security and safety, personnel tracking, fleet management, or unique mission applications that require maximum dependability and flexibility in remote locations, whether on land, at sea, or in the air anywhere in the world.More
