The RockFLEET Tracker is a truly global tracking device designed for permanent use aboard marine vessels and land vehicles. It has an optional GSM unit, which allows it to use terrestrial mobile phone networks when possible, automatically switching to the global Iridium satellite network when GSM is not available.
It is designed for permanent installation on ships, yachts, vehicles and other assets. The unit is waterproof, ruggedised, with a variety of mounting options to suit your needs.
The tracker will wake up on a regular basis, obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to Rock Seven 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 RockFLEET 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.
The combination of GSM and Iridium provides a cost effective, and truly global, method of tracking and communicating with your assets wherever they may be.

Line rental is paid in blocks of 1 month, and allows the RockFLEET to exchange information with the Iridium satellite network. You only pay for months in which you wish to use the RockFLEET. No annual contract is required. Line rental costs £15.00 per month and includes access to The CORE management system for monitoring your devices.
Credits are used each time you transmit. 1 credit is used per tracking position or per 50 characters of message sent or received. 1 credit is also used if you check your mailbox and there are no messages waiting (A mailbox check). Credits do not expire unless you do not use your account at all for 12 months. Credits are shared/pooled between all of the devices on your account

Iridium is the only satellite network that allows transmission of information from any point on Earth - other networks have no coverage in the polar regions, and have intermittent or no coverage in other marine and land areas.
Iridium has 66 satellites in orbit around the Earth, allowing coverage anywhere on Earth 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No other satellite network has truly global coverage. Messages sent via Iridium take just seconds to reach you, via e-mail or directly to your web-service.
RockFLEET uses the Iridium Satellite network. Specifically, it uses an Iridium service called 'Short Burst Data' (SBD). There's some official info here.
At the heart of RockFLEET is an Iridium 9602 modem.
RockSTAR units are used by marine security teams to provide tracking and secure communications with HQ.
Journalists carry our devices to provide a means of tracking and communication from wherever they are.
Horticulturalists use our devices for their remote workers, to provide field safety, and to mark the position of interesting finds.
