Rugged Global Tracking and Communication Device

The RockSTAR Two-Way Messenger is a truly global communication device and tracking system. It allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of Wi-Fi and GSM networks. The tracker will wake up on a regular basis, obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to Ground Control HQ using either GSM/GPRS or the Iridium® satellite network. We visualize the positions on an easy-to-use web-based viewer, The Core. The RockSTAR also allows short messages (like SMS, social media updates and short emails) to be sent using a paired Bluetooth device (such as a smartphone) and the Messenger app. This allows for full two-way communication wherever you are, even when out of mobile network range.

Global Handheld Communication Device

The RockSTAR is a lightweight, 2 way messaging and tracking device. Utilizing the powerful Iridium satellite network, world coverage is achieved ensuring that you are kept safe at all times. Ideal for use in extreme environments where WIFI or cellular coverage is not widely available.

  • Functionality
  • Five large buttons plus a specific alert button allows easy access regardless of the environment and makes it easier when wearing gloves or with cold, wet hands

  • Ruggedised Casing
  • With a rugged, rubberised, waterproof casing the RockSTAR is designed with extreme environments in mind, The rubber coating helps ensure the device will not slip in wet conditions or break if dropped

  • Tracking
  • The RockSTAR can be preset to report your position at a time interval of choice, from 5-seconds to 12-hours. This gives you peace of mind when you are far from home

  • Messaging

  • Additional Accessories
  • The RockSTAR comes with a range of additional accessories to suit the environment that you will be operating in. Arm aquapack, cigarette charger, additional USB cabling, mounting and a soft pouch

  • Battery Power
  • The battery will last for up to 3-weeks on one charge – this equates to over 2500 transmissions. It can be charged via the USB cable from a laptop or external power supply
