The NAL SHOUT ns is ideal for search and rescue personnel. Very light and small, it can be worn on the body and links Iridium satellites to smartphones over Bluetooth. This allows for GPS tracking and two-way text messages.
The SHOUT ns can also operate with a CR123 non-rechargeable battery. The ns supports transmission of free-text, canned messages, and a combination of free-text and canned messages via a smart phone. The device can periodically wake up from sleep to send its position report to a command center.
Datalink's TrakLink Android application allows members to touch the red panel for three seconds to send an immediate alert when in distress. This alert is relayed to all team members and over the cloud network to the remote command center.
WebGate is the user interface to DataGate using any web browser. DataGate administration and permissions along with security and access is controlled by passwords and allowed access.
All GPS and text messages between mobile command desks and personnel are displayed on computer screens. This includes smartphones and remote command screens using satellite or cellular routing.
DataGate cloud service is modular. From basic low cost Bluetooth GPS and SOS to advanced multi-networking communications. Including anything from GPS tracking of aircraft to placing drone IR scanned GPS locations on map screens.
Worn by team member the goTennaMesh provides a GPS location of each member when polled or when an SOS is activated by a team member. The device uses an internal 900Mhz spread spectrum transceiver with automatic mesh relaying and connects to an Android smartphone. Datalink's TrakLink relays the SOS and text messages over 4G, Iridium GO (satellite), or NAL SHOUT ns (satellite).
Datalink's DataNET version of the goTenna provides GPS and SOS protection for SAR personnel with goTenna's automatic relay to provide wide range tracking using a common UHF channel.
Datalink's custom application installed on any Android smartphone controls the goTenna and allows for SOS and GPS tracking only. Alternatively the goTenna sends GPS location updates every minute from every goTenna on the DataNET. Two-way text messaging is also a built-in feature.
A WebGate installed in the mobile command vehicle process all data with all SAR team member's locations appearing on map screens.
Data can also be routed from mobile command vehicles to the DataGate cloud over 4G, Iridium GO, or other satellite modems.
