Tracking provides Leaders with situational awareness of all participants for the duration of their expedition:
• Where groups are located
• The direction of travel
• History, with full audit capability
• 5,000 hours of tracking data stored for debriefing, assessment and review
The primary function of Tracking is to provide additional support and peace of mind to leaders, but further enhances risk management procedures. No more waiting around at checkpoints for longer than necessary, no more wondering where groups are located and whether they need help; clear simple focused intuitive control, reporting and management using latest satellite technology.
Signals from Trackers run via a satellite network so are not reliant upon mobile phone coverage, so are great for those areas where there is no or little mobile phone coverage. The Tracking data can be viewed on various platforms to provide maximum flexibility and resilience, so whether you want a pc-based system, an internet portal or a fully mobile solution complete with full back-up systems, then Mapyx has the answer to your demand. The only fully integrated Tracking solution recommended by the Duke of Edinburgh Award for the last 7 years.
