How FastTrac Works

FastTrac provides improved flight tracking by taking a GPS fix at 15-second intervals, but keeps satellite costs down by transmitting multiple reports together every 1-2 minutes.

The result is smooth, 15-second position reports outside of cellular coverage — but at a cost that is 75% less than transmitting each report separately over satellite.

At TracPlus we understand safety is paramount, but also recognize how the high cost of satellite airtime can place a strain on your bottom line.

FastTrac offers the best of both worlds — the safety and utility of fast-rate tracking in a mission-critical service, without breaking the bank.
