GPSFlight's advanced wireless telemetry solutions are flexible and powerful enough to meet the needs of commercial, government and educational customers including:
- Edwards Air Force Base
- Luke Air Force Base
- Cannon Range
- US Forest Service
- US Army
- Titan Systems
- Vertigo, Inc.
- Montana State University
- Civilian Space Exploration Team
- Natural Resources Canada
Current applications include:
Vehicle tracking: The GPSFlight modules features real time and data logging capabilities (with wireless retrieval of all historical data) in a single unit well-suited for covert tracking of vehicles.
Parachute Testing: When used with the optional barometric sensor from GPSFlight, the ST900 or XT900 units are ideal for ground- or aircraft-based tracking of cargo or personnel delivered via parachute as rate of descent and 3-dimensional position of multiple units may be tracked via a single receiver. Our XT900 is an enclosed version and features rechargeable battery pack, high-gain antennas, external switch and may be configured with customizable firmware specifically designed for the needs of our airborne customers.
Personnel Tracking: Our OEM units are used in several commercially available personnel tracking systems; some take advantage of the "panic button" feature to include immediate transmission of an emergency signal from the unit to the base station when a switch is depressed and held. This feature can be used with attitude/motion switches to automatically send a signal if the unit maintains a horizontal attitude or is motionless for a predetermined period.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: With effective range exceeding 20 miles, the standard units are in wide use by researchers and operational programs for tracking of UAV platforms. Optional recording, 3 axis accelerometer, and barometric sensors, and temperature probes enhance vertical accuracy and additional functionality.
Experimental: GPSFlight systems are used to track the breakup of the polar ice cap. Over 100 units are distributed across the polar ice flow, and a plane flies over periodically collecting new positional information from the transmitters each day.
Golf: GPSFlight systems are installed into golf carts to provide realtime pace of play reporting back to the clubhouse so the course manager can correct pace of play problems before they develop.
High Performance Rocketry: GPSFlight systems are in wide use by hobbyists and researchers for tracking and recovery of high performance rockets at altitudes exceeding 100,000 feet.
