Rover X

Iridium GPS Surface Beacon
Rover Iridium Beacon

The Rover X is an independently powered, self-contained GPS Iridium beacon designed to track buoys, ocean platforms or autonomous vehicles on the surface. Things don’t always go to plan, the Rover X acts as a perfect recovery aid in case of malfunction at the sea. Packaged in a ruggedized, UV protected, marine grade housing the Rover makes use of the low power, real time Iridium satellite constellation and GPS to reliably transmit the assets position at any time.

One of the most unique functions of the Rover X is its Watch Circle feature. If a buoy breaks free, starts drifting, and exits the defined Watch Circle; alarm messages will alert the user that their asset is drifting and must be recovered. 

The Rover X is compatible with XeosOnline monitoring software, providing easy monitoring of all your assets in one location. Users can monitor incoming messages, track their assets on the mapping tool, send commands to configure their beacons, and much more!
