Iridium SHOUT nano
The SHOUT nano is a second-generation handheld satellite tracker and messaging device. It is about 45% smaller than then the SHOUT and weighs half as much while retaining all the functions and features of the SHOUT. The nano has a high resolution color LCD with menu options displayed as icons instead of line-text.
The SHOUT nano is equipped with on-screen keyboards supporting transmission of free-text, canned messages and a combination of free-text and canned messages. The device can periodically wake up from sleep to send its position report to a command center. A guarded 911 button is used for immediate emergency/alert notifications. Data are packaged in either standard or 256-bit AES encrypted format.
The nano offers a variety of services including:
Normal Tracking — programmed to automatically wake up and send a position report at a set interval ranging from continuous to once every seven days.
Emergency Alert — sends alerts to a designated monitoring center using a 911 button. The monitoring center and the user can then communicate to define further specifics of the emergency.
Free-Text Messaging — sends free-text via three different sets of on-screen keyboards.
Canned Text Messaging — sends canned (pre-defined) messages in short codes to save bandwidth instead of the entire message body.
Waypoint Tracking — sends and/or saves waypoints (interested landmarks) for later retrieval.
Check-In — allows a quick check-in message to be sent using a single soft key.
