Ranching Intelligence with West Sky Technology

When Global Satellite Engineering began working on the GSatSolar, we knew the technological pieces required to deliver a solar unit in a small form factor. Considering our own CEO Jeff Palmer had been a member of 4H in his youth, and still enjoys sharing stories of his successes at cattle competitions, we knew that with our goal to revolutionize the agricultural world and provide a product that ranchers and farmers alike would find useful, we...

Snow Removal Management

snow_head
Winter is creeping its way upon us, and brings with it snow in 70% of the United States. Snow depth measuring is a very analog process involving no more than a snow stake in the ground and someone to read it via camera or in person. In theory that’s a solid way to gauge the snow, but in reality, there are environmental barriers to accuracy, mainly wind. A snow stake at the base of the mountain pass could read 10cm at 6 AM, so it’s clear...

Snow Season Telematics

Every year, snowfall accumulates on over 3 million acres of North America, covering nearly 70% of its population in snow. The effects of this precipitation impact the US with nearly 76,000 people injured in traffic accidents each year. In Canada, 30% of all automobile accidents are specifically attributed to snowfall. Beyond safety, snowy roadways also present a tremendously negative effect on commerce and infrastructure. To ensure the smallest...

GSatTrack and satellite-based systems aid wildfire prevention tactics

fires
In the spring of 2019, I wrote a case study on how monitoring chipper data and harvesting forest fuel could reduce forest fires. Little did I know during the next 18 months the world would see catastrophic fires across the globe. In August of 2019 the Amazon was seeing over 1000 fires a day. By January of 2020, over 46 million acres had burnt across all Australian states and territories leaving countless homeless including millions of animals....

GSatTrack Keeps Families Safe

drive_girl
In today’s world where everyone is connected, it is easy to find ourselves placing free apps on our phones to let our family know where we are at all times. We may even download a free app offered by our network for added security. The truth however is that these apps are rarely free and offer little in the way of safety for our loved ones. What is more likely is that we are providing means for companies to use our data to understand our...

Construction Companies use GSatTrack for BIM

Drone construction
Most GIS systems incorporate mapping imagery or layers is by purchasing licenses from a single mapping provider. This provider may also offer additional historical satellite imagery for use by the GIS provider, but the images provided may be antiquated or out of date, with recent construction or natural events which change the natural landscape and topography of an area omitted. To address this, clients often opt to use their own imagery in...

GSatTrack and Forestry Telematics

Logging
In the summer of 2000, fire destroyed millions of acres of forest across the United States. In response, M. Chad Bolding, a Graduate Research Assistant, and Associate Professor Dr. Bobby L. Lanford at the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences of Auburn University performed a study to investigate the feasibility of harvesting to reduce forest fuel buildup, which would reduce potential materials that could burn during a forest fire, while...

GSatTrack Supports Man Down Features for Lone Workers

lone_solar
These case studies often begin with statistical data that shows a clearly defined pain point in a certain industry GSE has helped in the past. In the case of lone worker and man-down instances, however, the need to show numbers or percentages to convince anyone that a triggered SOS button is important seems disingenuous. We understand every life is important and that immediate actions need to be taken when an SOS button is triggered, but what...

GSatTrack and Globalstar save millions for river shipments

River Barge
Nearly 36,000 tugboats, towboats and barges move an average of 763 million tons of cargo on US waterways each year. The greatest threat to continued delivery of these goods is flooding. Tropical storms have been both stronger and more frequently occurring than in prior years. Storm surge from these disturbances routinely wash out dams and levies, making waters impassible or unsafe. Harsher winters have attributed to larger amounts of...

M2M in Chemical Warehousing

Chemical Storage
Machine to machine (M2M), is the label given to any technology that allows networked devices to exchange data and execute tasks without the physical involvement by humans. This can be as simple as notifying a distributor when a particular item is running low or as advanced as turning an oil pipeline off in the event of malfunction. There is no end to the opportunities for which M2M technologies can be applied, from large scale logistics...
