It's a novel and intriguing program... Nearly real-time tracking
for your aircraft... available 24/7 to those who need to know where
you are... in good times and bad.
Spidertracks sends your location in real-time from the spider in
your aircraft through the Iridium satellite network, and displays
the track of your flight on the Aviator website. Should the worst
happen and you have an accident, Spidertracks will automatically
send out SOS alerts to the people you have allowed/selected.
The principle behind Spidertracks is simple... Spidertracks
knows the location of your aircraft or vehicle, its speed, altitude
and heading, based on its GPS coordinates. A portable 'spider' in
the aircraft receives and transmits the location information via
the Iridium Satellite Network in real-time.
The 66 Iridium Satellites transmit the location information back
to the Iridium servers on the ground. The position information is
sent from Iridium to Spidertracks' servers in the United States.
The data is then translated into a track of the flight online.
And if an accident occurs, Spidertracks will automatically send
SOS alerts to the pilot's contacts within minutes.
