The transceiver is a satellite communication terminal mounted on the vehicle. It integrates a GPS receiver and an omnidirectional antenna, enclosed in a rugged and environmentally sealed housing. The GPS receiver uses low orbit sun-synchronous satellites to pinpoints the vehicles location and transmits its identification, speed, date, time and performance data to the Monitoring Station. These transceivers support global 2-way communication enabling the system to send and receive messages to and from any mobile or fixed asset whether its on land, at sea or in the air. Businesses can acquire useful information from assets such as a truck, trailer, train, boat, buoy, an oil well head, a valve, a propane tank etc and even control them remotely.
