The Iridium 9602-GSM is an affordable dual mode Satellite/ GSM tracker, which operates on the global Iridium network as well as standard mobile networks. Its small size and low power consumption makes it an ideal asset tracker for a variety of needs.

The Iridium 9602-GSM is a pocket sized, self-contained satellite based asset tracker designed to operate on global GSM networks when available, and the Iridium low-earth orbit satellite network when no GSM coverage is available, resulting in 100% global coverage. The 9602-GSM features an external multi-interface connector and connectors for external Iridium, GSM and GPS antennas (which should be purchased separately).

The 9602-GSM is ideally suited for the tracking of high value ground and sea based assets such as vehicles, vessels, railcars and shipping containers or for aeronautical tracking on helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. It is also suitable for tracking environmentally demanding platforms including buoys, unmanned aerial vehicles, rockets and even high altitude balloons. Weighing just 227g, the 9602-GSM can be used for overt or covert tracking and is capable of transmitting GPS coordinates from as little as every 4 seconds at altitudes of up to 164,000 feet and velocity of 500m per second.

The 9602-GSM offers the following features:

Global Coverage The 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker operates on global GSM networks and the Iridium satellite network. This is the only commercial satellite network in the world to offer 100% truly global coverage, meaning the 9602-GSM can show the location of your asset, wherever it travels across the globe.

GSM Connection The 9602-GSM operates on global GSM networks to provide low-cost and efficient transmissions. It is capable of automatically switching to the Iridium satellite network when no GSM network is detected.

Standard Messaging Mode The 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker is equipped with Location Based Services (LBS) enabling GPS positioning. The device is capable of transmitting its GPS coordinates from anywhere on the globe.

Dust & Water Resistant The 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions.

SOS-Function The 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker is equipped with a programmable emergency button that activates critical, rapid response when you need it most. When pressed, the SOS button transmits your GPS coordinates and alerts your pre-specified contacts that you require assistance.

Follow-Me Using the two-way Iridium satellite constellation, the 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker offers a ‘Follow-Me’ function. This enables you to ping the device, wherever it is located in the world, and instruct it to transmit its current GPS coordinates and status (device must be turned on with a satellite connection to enable this feature to function correctly).

Geo-Fencing In conjunction with GTCTrack, GTC’s online mapping portal, the 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker offers a geo-fencing feature. This allows you to predefine a set of geographical boundaries and be alerted by email when the device enters or exits the geo-fenced area.

GTCTrack Compatible The 9602-GSM satellite asset tracker is compatible with GTCTrack, our advanced online mapping portal. GTCTrack makes visible a variety of advanced tracking functions available on the 9602-GSM, such as a breadcrumb trails of historic movements, live view (position of last message transmitted) and exact location of SOS and emergency requests. Asset locations and movements - including position, speed, altitude and heading - are tracked in real-time worldwide via GPS updates and available to view through a Google Earth based interface. These tracking functions are available with an additional subscription.(Please see images of GTCTrack alongside the product images above).
