Abstract

The Irdium Satelitte Network has greatly increased safety in the ballooning field by enabling a greater span of control in flight awarness and termination. This enhanced awareness stems from accurate high interval GPS coordinates that can be integrated into ground station tracking software. The Iridium Network creates the ability to send activation commands remotely with high reliabilty using emails. Additionally this feature has the ability to use local rf transmiters and recievers to increase the flexibilty of cutdown designs. The Iridium Modems provides significant coverage regardless of altitude and loss of ground communication. It is marketed at econmical price point which allows the feasibilty to integrate on a large scale. Server based data can be pulled from any internet capable device to increases the ease of access. Reliabilty plays a significant role, exspecially where low power Radio and Wifi communications come up short. Lastly the Iridium serves a valuable tool in recovery and aquistion of assets post flight.

 

How Iridium Satellite Tracker Model 9602-LP Asset affects span of Control in High Altitidue Balloning

The Irdium Satelitte Network has greatly increased safety in the ballooning field by enabling a greater span of control in flight awarness and termination. This enhanced awareness stems from accurate high interval GPS coordinates that can be integrated into ground station tracking software. The Iridium Network creates the ability to send activation commands remotely with high reliabilty using emails. Additionally this feature has the ability to use local rf transmiters and recievers to increase the flexibilty of cutdown designs. The Iridium Modems provides significant coverage regardless of altitude and loss of ground communication. It is marketed at econmical price point which allows the feasibilty to integrate on a large scale. Server based data can be pulled from any internet capable device to increases the ease of access. Reliabilty plays a significant role, exspecially where low power Radio and Wifi communications come up short. Lastly the Iridium serves a valuable tool in recovery and aquistion of assets post flight.
