To help organizations track, monitor, and control high-value assets in different environments across the globe, Honeywell has released a portable satellite terminal based on the Inmarsat network.
The product which was conceptualized and developed by Honeywell engineers in Bengaluru will help businesses operating in remote or disaster-affected areas manage and track their fleet and assets through satellite tracking.
The company said that once an asset has been equipped with an SAT-IDP terminal and deployed in the field, the terminal can be programmed to send and receive customized data from internal and external sensors including temperature, humidity, vibration, and shock.
“With high-value assets moving throughout the world, our portable next-generation satellite terminal gives shippers, fleet companies and their customers' valuable data to help make sure their goods will make it to their destination safely,” said Kenneth Deville, general manager of Honeywell's global Tracking business.
The company claimed that its terminal operates globally on the highly reliable L-band satellite network from Inmarsat using theIsatData Pro (IDP) service. IDP is often used where no other communications networks exist but also complements other networks such as 4G as a reliable fallback for mission-critical data.
Inmarsat is a British satellite telecommunications company that operates across a diversified portfolio of sectors.
