Case Study - Aircraft Tracking Solution in the Alaskan Skies
The contract change had a number of functional requirements that had to be met. The solution had to be Iridium-based, able to report at 2 minute intervals, powered by the aircraft’s own electrical system, and able to be mounted safely where the pilot can reach the keypad and verify the system is operational prior to take off.
The DOI also required system compatibility with the government AFF Webtracker system and a web service accessible by the government department.
Integrating Iridium’s short-burst data (SBD) service and truly global communications network into their own systems proven in over 60 countries, Spidertracks developed an AFF compliant and Webtracker
compatible system that is self-contained, fully portable, easy to install, conveniently mounted near the pilot and powered by the aircraft. Reporting intervals and who has access can be adjusted as required,
convenient and cost saving for flights not involving DOI contract work.
