The SX1 represents a breakthrough in satellite-based asset monitoring and tracking technology. Operating on Globalstar’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) simplex satellite data network, the SX1 provides GPS visibility, event monitoring and remote asset data on a near global basis. Ideal for low volume messaging with mission critical data, the SX1 provides commercial and government customers with the most cost-effective satellite solution available for both fixed and mobile applications such as intermodal shipping containers, trailers, buoys and barges.

Innovative, Compact, Rugged Design

The SX1 will carry the highest environmental ratings available for any satellite or terrestrial tracking device, by receiving HERO (Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance). Certifi cation and meeting or exceeding 16 methods within the MIL-STD 810F requirements, making it the most rugged satellite tracking tag available today. It’s compact size makes it ideal for almost any container or asset since it is only 8.25 x 3.25 x 1 inch (184 x 83 x 25 mm) and weighs only 13 ounces (369 g).

Long-Life, Low Maintenance, Easy Install

Delivering years of uninterrupted service on a single and easily fi eld-replaceable lithium battery, the SX1 can be installed, activated and operational in less than one minute. The SX1 is able to track and monitor any asset nearly instantly. The SX1 is the product of choice for applications requiring low maintenance, long-life solutions.

Reliability, Expansion, Integration

The pinpoint accuracy of the SX1 GPS chipset and satellite communications provides more reliable tracking of remote assets than cellular Location Based Systems or proximity RFID tags because it communicates dependably via satellite extending its range far beyond cellular and RFID coverage.

For expansion, the functionality of the SX1 is enhanced through the USB port. Supporting external sensors, the SX1 provides additional capabilities to meet the demands of real-time security, alarm reporting and asset conditions. The internal motion sensor and highly confi gurable event alarms help customers manage their security concerns when high-value assets are at risk. The open architecture allows complete and secure data integration and is compatible with virtually any legacy supply chain, logistics or tracking application.

Cost-Eff ective Global Coverage Satellite communications provide near global coverage and the Simplex Data Network provides the most cost-effective solution available for monitoring assets from continent to continent and across urban and remote areas. Not only are LEO satellite communications more reliable for data transmission than terrestrial systems, they also offer substantial benefits over Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites. The advantages include lower power requirements, reduced latency, less shadowing from buildings or stacked containers and increased reliability due to redundant satellite network.

Total Asset Visibility

The SX1 with its associated satellite network offering and optional webbased mapping and asset management software allows customers to obtain Total Asset Visibility from any internet connection worldwide. The webbased solution requires no downloads and provides mapping, display, and management tools for tens of thousands of assets.
