The 9601-DGS is a pocket-size, low-cost, satellite tracker designed to operate with the Iridium network in SBD-only data mode. It is a stand-alone unit relying on an internal micro-controller/GPS receiver for operation.
The 9601-DGS can send either a standard or a 256-bit AES encrypted GPS report at a pre- programmed interval ranging from once every four seconds to once every forty-five days. The interval can be changed remotely while the unit is in the field. There is an available serial port that can be used to communicate with an external sensor or data terminal equipment (DTE) such as a PDA.
