Iridium Surface Tracking System
Oil Spill Tracking

Reliable, continuous information from the ocean’s surface can be difficult to gather. OSKER and ROBY offer global communications via the Iridium satellite system in a small, rugged package with sophisticated on-board programming. Manage 2-way communication between the tracking unit and XeosOnline monitoring system for full remote configurability.

The ROBY is a re-usable surface tracker with antennas and user replaceable batteries. Information can be received via plaintext email and/or monitored using XeosOnline, a web-based monitoring software providing map level positioning and history. 2-way communication via Iridium allows for remote changes to the watch circle settings or reporting intervals. Trust OSKER & ROBY to bring you the information you need when you need it most.
