New tracking unit from Polaris

Danish company Polaris Electronics has introduced a new tracking device, called SIRIUS One, operating via the Iridium network.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Iridium satellite signal via SIRIUS One is accessible from a smartphone, so that the device can also be used for sending and receiving text messages.

The unit is equipped with an internal battery, and is being targeted for use for Long Range Identification Tracking (LRIT) and, in the future, the Ship Security Alerts System (SSAS).

SIRIUS One can be built into various products that need to be traceable, the company says, and may be useful connected to containers, for example.

“In the development of SIRIUS One we have continuously used the input which we have received from our customers over the years,” said managing director Klavs Torp.

“We have focused on tailoring a transmitter which is robust when it comes to the harsh maritime environment, reliable, versatile and profitable.”{/mprestriction}
