Global Telesat Communications to Provide Satellite Tracking for Atlantic Odyssey Transatlantic Rallies
Global Telesat Communications, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of satellite tracking and communications equipment, announced today that it has been selected to provide the satellite tracking solution for yachts participating in the Atlantic Odyssey rallies. These new transatlantic rallies have been launched by Jimmy Cornell, the founder of the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers). The aim of the rallies is to return to the original spirit of the ARC, that of a non-commercial non-competitive event for cruising sailors, with an emphasis on safety and enjoyment of participation in this kind of amateur event. GTC will supply DeLorme inReach satellite trackers, airtime and online mapping capabilities for the rallies which are being organised by Cornell Sailing Events Ltd. Utilizing a combination of the GPS and Iridium satellite networks, the DeLorme inReach tracking devices provide 100% global coverage and will automatically transmit regular GPS location reports from the participating yachts. This will enable the yachts to be visually located and monitored by race spectators and organisers anywhere in the world. In addition, historic data will also be available to show movements of the yachts during the course of the rallies. John Ellis, Event Director of Atlantic Odyssey said "We are delighted to be receiving GTC’s assistance for our upcoming transatlantic sailing events. GTC were able to offer a wide range of tracking options for our fleets of yachts and have provided us with cost-effective airtime plans and trackers. Having reliable, accurate trackers and flexible mapping and airtime options were key factors in our selection of GTC for the Atlantic Odyssey sailing events.” “We are pleased to be a part of this exciting new venture with Atlantic Odyssey. It is a great event for sailing enthusiasts and the perfect opportunity to show off the tracking capabilities of the inReach satellite tracker. We look forward to following the rallies with interest“, said David Phipps, Managing Director of GTC. The DeLorme inReach is the first affordable, two-way communications solution which provides GPS tracking and locating, SOS alerting and messaging anywhere in the world using the Iridium satellite network.
Global Telesat Communications Introduces the DeLorme inReach™ Satellite Communicator to UK and European Consumers
First affordable, two-way communications solution provides GPS tracking and locating, SOS alerting and text messaging anywhere in the world using the Iridium satellite network. Global Telesat Communications (GTCL), one of the UK’s leading suppliers of mobile satellite voice, data and tracking services today announced that it has been appointed as an authorised distributor of the DeLorme inReach™ 2-way satellite communicator and will offer it to maritime, recreational, enterprise and aeronautical users across the EU. Featuring a truly comprehensive list of functions, inReach takes advantage of the Iridium network to ensure complete global coverage, making it the ideal safety companion for anyone travelling or working in remote areas. As a standalone product, inReach can send pre-defined text messages to designated recipients, activate remote tracking - allowing others to follow movements online – and send SOS messages to local search and rescue services. Additionally, it visually confirms that messages have been transmitted for reassurance during an emergency. The device can also be paired with a compatible smartphone or tablet via a free downloadable app for full text messaging capabilities, enabling the user to keep in touch with family and friends or describe their situation and location in detail in the case of an accident. Using inReach in paired mode will allow the user to view progress on a route, with detailed information regarding heading, speed, and elevation. Built to last, the product is capable of being submerged in up to 3 metres of water, is buoyant, dustproof, and can operate at temperatures as low as -20°C to +70°C. “Compared with similar two-way GPS satellite trackers and messengers on the market, it is easily the most affordable at £157.50 (ex VAT); no other product has the same range of features at that price-point. We anticipate that this will make inReach very popular for both leisure and business users alike and are pleased to add DeLorme’s satellite GPS device to our existing range of products,” said David Phipps, Managing Director of GTCL. “Launching this important relationship with Global Telesat expands DeLorme’s international presence and signifies our continued growth around the world,” said Jim Skillings, Vice President of Commercial Products. “Because of Global Telesat’s established reputation and success in the region, as well as the product’s pole-to-pole global coverage through the Iridium satellite network, inReach is uniquely positioned as the safety and communication solution of choice for people whose work or recreational activities take place every day in remote regions and other areas not covered by cell phone service.” The DeLorme inReach has won many awards from respected outdoors and technology publications since its debut at the 2011 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, including several ‘Best in Show’ and ‘Gear of the Year’ accolades.
