Latest AeroAstro Asset Tracking Satellite Downlink Decoder Ready For Deployment

by Staff Writers
Ashburn VA (SPX) May 30, 2007
AeroAstro has announced that the next SENS asset tracking satellite downlink decoder rack passed all testing and is ready for installation at a Globalstar ground gateway. The equipment will be used to expand the geographic coverage of the Globalstar Simplex Data Service. Testing of the device, known as the "SENS Applique", was conducted at AeroAstro's headquarters in Ashburn, VA during the second week of May.

AeroAstro provides proprietary network infrastructure devices containing the signal processing technology that powers the Globalstar Simplex Data Service. They are already installed across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Western Australia. AeroAstro continues to expand the availability of seamless global asset tracking data communications with the successful factory acceptance test of the AeroAstro proprietary device.

"The infrastructure equipment will be installed at a Globalstar groundstation in June, further expanding the commercial reach of the Globalstar Simplex Service." said David J. Goldstein, Executive VP and GM of the Communications and Sensor Systems group at AeroAstro.

"AeroAstro continues to take pride in expanding the use of seamless tracking and logistics technology worldwide with the ability to enable low-cost and very small tracking devices using the Globalstar system."

The Sensor Enabled Notification System (SENS) Applique, a proprietary digital signal processing infrastructure component installed at key Globalstar ground stations, receives and decodes asset tracking and monitoring data from field transmitters via the Globalstar Low Earth Orbit satellite network. It digitizes RF signals and extracts SENS message packets despite interference or overlapping transmissions, and transmits these messages through the Internet.
