offers the SPOT Satellite Messenger, a solution for remote
and lone worker safety. The SPOT device works where cell
phones don’t, in very remote regions, mountainous
terrain, everywhere that the AssetLink
system works globally.
The SPOT uses the GPS network and a network of commercial
satellites to determine GPS coordinates and send tracking
and 911 emergency messages to your operations team and
home base. An independent rescue team can also be summoned
in case of extreme emergency. Data is displayed on a third
party system, although can be integrated with the AssetVision
web software system on a custom basis.
Inspired by the story of James Kim and
his family, lost and killed by exposure mere miles from
his potential rescuers in the Oregon wilderness in the
winter of 2006, the SPOT device has saved numerous lives
since its introduction in 2008 including the life of a
close colleague of the President of AssetLink
Global deep in the Colorado mountains.
