The availability of low-cost, lightweight GPS devices combined with wide-area wireless coverage makes possible a host of location-dependent applications across a wide variety of industries. Some applications include:
Theft Detection and Recovery. Billions of dollars each year are lost due to theft of vehicles, merchandise, cargo and other hard assets. The ever-smaller size of GPS electronics enables companies to attach unobtrusive tracking devices onto these assets. With Space Data’s wide-area network, companies can locate and recover the exact coordinates of their assets even in the most remote areas.
Other Location Monitoring Applications. New GPS devices are available to locate workers, children and even pets. The SkySite® Network can ensure that their location doesn’t disappear when they leave a metropolitan area.
Commercial Fleet Management. (See Transportation.)
