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 ruggedised case resides an programmable intelligence capable of letting

you know more than just the location of an asset but the behaviour 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 behaviour 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.
