Personal Iridium Tracker
GSE's handheld integration of the OEM is established as the smallest self-contained Iridium tracker in the world!
Environmentally sealed, the GSatMicro is a handheld satellite terminal that is suitable for the harshest and most challenging environments that are far from the reach of most communications systems. The GSatMicro provides personnel communications equipment that is exceptionally secure, light, reliable, portable, and rugged, with the addition of added behavior control. The GSatMicro brings together powerful electronics with an intelligent core to create an extremely versatile unit that can detect and communicate the behavior of assets in the field.
The GSatMicro Series is a suite of intelligent satellite terminals that provide behavior monitoring and management of fixed and mobile assets around the globe. Learn more by visiting the product site:
In its handheld form factor, the GSatMicro is the world’s smallest and lightest, self-contained Iridium satellite communications terminal. With the inclusion of the - GSatMicro OEM, a rechargeable battery, an antenna, I/O ports, Bluetooth and GSM modules - absolutely everything you need is built in and very simple to interface with to a multitude of connectivity options. Within the ruggedized case resides an programmable intelligence capable of letting you know more than just the location of an asset but the behavior of the asset and how the world around it is affecting it. In essence, the GSatMicro is not just a tracking device, it is a powerful processing engine in the smallest and lightest form available on the market today.
Additionally, it includes on-device behavior control and intelligence that allows it to perform logic and data analysis. With the ability to provide automated reporting, it comes standard with an Alert and check in button. LEDs let you know when the device is connected to GPS and the Iridium satellite network, as well as Alert, incoming messages and power status.
The GSatMicro provides strategic integration capabilities for diverse applications ideal for security and safety, personnel tracking, fleet management, or unique mission applications that require maximum dependability and flexibility in remote locations, whether on land, at sea, or in the air anywhere in the world.
Introducing The GSatMicro Series
A suite of intelligent, satellite enabled terminals that provide a vast set of features to help you quickly and effectively satellite enable your projects
The GSatMicro Series is a suite of intelligent, satellite enabled terminals that provide advantageous, global behavior monitoring and management of fixed and mobile assets. Whether managing people, vehicles, aircrafts, vessels or remote installations, the GSatMicro Series terminals provide satellite enabled solutions across multiple industries. It provides an encrypted, secure communications channel around the globe for transmitting and receiving data, and in many cases, survivable communications on demand whether on land, in the air, or at sea.
The GSatMicro Series is fully programmable and customizable, allowing the creation and modification of scripts to expose custom behaviors and transmit data in a format dictated by your unique requirements. The ability to execute a customized script allows the GSatMicro Series to perform real-time analysis of data captured out in the field, control other hardware, sensors, or electromechanical components, and perform other vital tasks.
The core of the GSatMicro Series terminals is a processing engine between any and all of the built in interfaces: satellite, GPS, Bluetooth, USB, encryption, serial port, analog inputs, digital outputs, accelerometer, battery/charging information, temperature, and shock/motion.
Iridium's Global Satellite Network
The GSatMicro Series utilizes Iridium’s bi-directional SBD (Short Burst Data Service) satellite service to provide visibility and network connectivity with people and equipment anywhere in the world and offers a simple and efficient satellite communications service for transmitting small portions of data between remote assets and a centralized host. Iridium’s SBD service offers low-latency, truly global coverage and near real-time communications capabilities.

The device does not make any noise but it does have lights informing you: if the device is powered on, the battery level, GPS connections, 'Alert Mode' status, satellite connections and if you have an incoming message.
Yes, the GSatMicro integrates exceptionally well with our tracking platform: GSatTrack. Go to www.gsattrack.com/SignUp for a one month free demo account.
On average, about 800 reports before the device needs to be recharged.
Standard editions come in black, however, other solid colors may be requested for a small fee. If further customization is required; custom "skins" such as camouflage or carbon fibre patterns may be requested for an additional cost.
Yes, it was designed to not only integrate with our tracking platform but it can be used on other tracking platforms as well. When considering this option though, know that GSatTrack has been optimized to fully control the GSatMicro and is the better option.
Yes, the GSatMicro case is waterproof and dust tight. It has an 'Intrusion Protrection' rating of IP67.
