NAL Research - SHOUT Nano
SHOUT nano is a handheld, global, two-way satellite communication device and emergency beacon. It is designed with ultra-low power consumption electronics, and equipped with an LCD display and an on-screen keyboard allowing transmission of free text and canned messages. Data is sent in either standard or 256-bit AES encrypted format.
How it Works
The SHOUT nano is a portable, handheld two way outdoor satellite messaging and GPS device for emergency/rescue, text messaging applications and location based services. The service may be marketed in various formats to meet government, business and outdoor enthusiast markets.
It utilizes Iridium’s satellite Short Burst Data messaging service to provide communication of the devices location determined by a GPS receiver, two-way inbound and outbound status and text messaging, support/alert notifications and text based communications in emergency situations. It is designed with ultra-low power consumption electronics drawing less than 50µA during sleep.
The SHOUT nano is equipped with an LCD display and an on-screen keyboard allowing transmission of free text and canned messages. The device can periodically “wake up” from sleep and sends its position report to a server or sends an emergency alert via a 911 button. Data are sent in either standard or 256-bit AES encrypted format. An internal motion sensor allows detection of man-down scenario. The position report is in PECOS Message Structure (PMS) or optimized NAL Research’s protocol. The PMS complies with the Blue Force Tracking Data Format Specification.
