Internet-based satellite tracking with Message Data Terminals and Sensor Equipment

The objective of the project is to build a complete end-to-end tracking application for use in Automatic vehicle Location needs around the world.

The type of terminal had to be independent so use of Inmarsat D+, Inmarsat C, Orbcomm, or even GSM was transparent to the end user. The key advantage of the Fleet Management Solution is that the end user reduces costs and improves customers’ service. A great deal of attention was devoted to studying existing hardware alternatives for different parts of the mobile solution.

The project was initiated in May 2002 and completed in August 2003.
