In cooperation with Royal Arctic Line and onboard two of their vessels – Arina Arctica and Mary Arctica – the Trusted S1 tracking device was thoroughly tested in the toughest of environments.
From Greenland and all the way down to Antarctica – across the heat of the equator – the battery-powered S1 tracker performed as well as expected.
The most remote and rough environments on the planet
Over a period of 6 months, we were kindly allowed to install the S1 Iridium tracker onboard the Arina Arctica for its trip to the east and west of Greenland up to Lat 78°.
After returning from Greenland, we installed the same tracker to the Mary Arctica for a trip to Antarctica for delivery of supplies to the Norwegian bases at Lat -72°.
While Greenland is no picnic in itself, Antarctica is known as the coldest, windiest, and driest continent on Earth.
This, however, is no problem for the S1 device which did not miss a single transmission during the journey. This might be business as usual for the device itself, but impressive as it also endured the heat at the equator during the trip.
As such, an impressively wide temperature range was tested as well.
All in all, the tracking device traveled more than 50.000 km, logging positions every hour and transmitting four reports per day.
For your tracking operations outside normal network coverage
For all equipment and assets working in regions and areas where there is no GSM coverage, the S1 will ensure that you maintain full visibility no matter if you are in the desert, on the savannah, or at sea.
Imagine the possibilities of maintaining supply chain visibility and security, or tracking scientific operations in remote areas.
Tracking is now fully available – from pole to pole.
S1 is built on the same principles as in our T-series of tracking devices.
Featuring a very long battery lifetime and robust casing designed for use in harsh environments, it is suitable for heavy industry as well as for scientific and military use.
S1 is IP69k rated and can be used in all weather conditions in temperatures ranging from -30C to +85C.
The S1 is a continuation of the Iridium satellite and GPS work Trusted has carried out in Africa since 2015.
Here our trackers have been working in the field of anti-poaching and scientific wildlife tracking helping to secure endangered species like rhinos, elephants, and many other animals.
After the test, CEO at Trusted A/S, Niels Henrik Olesen, stated: “The S1 tracking device is a welcome addition to the Trusted product portfolio. We see great potential in the S1 tracker for secure logistic operations and asset management outside urban areas.”
Trusted products are available for global distribution via Trusted A/S and selected Trusted partners/distributors.
Trusted A/S tested the S1 tracking device and data logger which works on the Iridium satellite data network.
The journey by ship took the tracker to Greenland and all the way down to Antarctica.
The S1 tracking device worked perfectly and documented the whole trip online with daily updates on position and other data.
