The next small thing in aircraft tracking. The Spider S6 is for any operator who wants to know more than just where an aircraft is. With the Spider S6, you can find out how an aircraft is being flown. Spidertracks’ partnership with the Iridium network allows the Spider S6 to track an aircraft over every inch of the globe from takeoff to landing.

Description

The Spidertracks aircraft safety system comprises the Spider S6 and the Spidertracks website. The system is designed to improve both the efficiency of every flight your aircraft fly, as well as the safety of all aircraft operations. The S6 uses the Iridium 9602 SBD transceiver and has an integrated antenna, meaning the only external connection required is a power source. This makes the S6 very easy to install in your aircraft. The keypad allows pilots to send up to four pre-programmed text or email messages to nominated recipients. Pilots can manually activate SOS alerts in the event of an accident, or allow the watch system to generate alerts automatically.

 

How it Works


The Spider S6 receives location, speed, altitude and direction information from the GPS network and transmits it through the Iridium satellite network using Short Burst Data. Users then log into the spidertracks web app, where this information is received and displayed using the user friendly spidertracks website. Multiple aircraft can be viewed on one map, and operators can get more detailed tracking information about individual aircraft. Set up and management of the system is done by users, online. There can be multiple users and no per user license fees.

It’s no longer just enough to know where your aircraft are. With the Spider S6, you can also oversee how they’re being flown. You’ll be able to set parameters for different aspects such as rate of climb, and you’ll be alerted in real-time if they are exceeded.

More Information
Part Number SPIDER-S6
Features

Portable


- GPS and Iridium antennas are integrated – no external aerials required. The Spider plugs into the aircraft cigarette lighter outlet for quick interchange
between aircraft/vehicles, or it can be hard-wired. No STC required.

 

Iridium Satellite Network


- Global coverage is provided in real-time by 66 low earth orbit satellites, with information reaching the website in as little as 5 seconds.

 

SOS


- The SOS button on the keypad can be used in an emergency to send instant alert messages to your pre-set emergency contacts.

 

Watch


- Actively track the aircraft as it sends position reports to the website. If an incident occurs and the Spider loses power, the website will automatically send an SOS message after 15 minutes of no communication.

 

Mark Button & Notifications


- Press the Mark button to send position reports manually, or set automatic takeoff and landing notifications through the website. Send up to four pre-set email and SMS messages through the website when a report is triggered.

 

Geofence


- Specify tracking boundaries in up to five circular areas and set custom update rates or suspend position reports automatically when inside these areas. This can reduce the cost of operation when flying in areas where tracking is not necessary.

 

Spidertracks AFF/API


- Allows you to send tracking data to third parties in real time, including US Forest Service, or share information with maintenance tracking software.

 

Altitude Events


- Know when something isn’t right. Your aircraft can now alert you to changes in altitude and send position updates in real time.
