SkyBitz Inc - Galaxy GTP1000

Forged from the combination of the best technologies on the market today, the SkyBitz® Galaxy GTP1000 is a state-of-the-art global tracking and monitoring solution. This revolutionary development in technology uses our patented Global Locating System (GLS) coupled with the world’s only truly global satellite constellation by Iridium. When combined with a dramatically smaller device footprint and multi-year battery life, the GTP1000 is perfect for tracking mobile assets anywhere in the world.

The self-contained GTP1000 can be easily installed on assets like trailers, containers, and construction equipment using two simple mounting brackets and four screws.

The GTP1000 introduces instant installation verification, assuring that each device is installed and connected properly via built-in LEDs, eliminating any guesswork. An optional magnetic key allows users to check battery status and send a diagnostic message while in the field. Replacing batteries is simple because the GTP1000 is powered by off-the-shelf “AA” lithium batteries.

The GTP1000 was built to last. It’s ruggedized, low profile, weather proof housing is designed to withstand the harsh environments of the transportation, intermodal, and construction industries. The device can also accommodate a suite of additional sensors, such as cargo, door and tire pressure, which cover a variety of security, environmental and operational reporting requirements.

The GTP1000 provides the capacity to incorporate sensors for additional situational awareness. The device is ruggedized to IP67 standards and easy to install and maintain.
