The RDDAP3 global satellite tracker is one of the most versatile, two-way asset tracking, GPS and sensor monitoring solutions ever built, especially designed for unpowered assets.

The RDDAP3 is a low profile, battery-powered, solar recharging, rapidly reporting, fully self-contained, ruggedized, Over-The-Air (OTA) command capable, intrinsically safe, encrypted, geofence-enabled, memory-rich, GPS tracking and (optionally) cabled sensor interface solution, that enables the reliable tracking and monitoring of any fixed or mobile asset anywhere in the world – ground, sea or air.

The RDDAP3’s solar plus battery power configuration lasts the lifetime of most industrial equipment (10+ years) and is designed to survive long low sun conditions. The RDDAP3 leverages the 100% global coverage of the Iridium satellite constellation’s reliable duplex connectivity.

The RDDAP3 is controlled OTA to change reporting schedules and behavior, control sensor endpoints, geofences, alarm thresholds, and deliver firmware upgrades. Red Dog Logistics offers zero-to-low-cost, rapid HW integration support to partners adding sensors.

Data is delivered in many methods, most often directly into partners’ display portals, along with integrated APIs for OTA device configuration. All customers get access to Red Dog Logistics web-based asset and device management portal with simple display/mapping solution. Payload parsing and API documentation is available to integrators. The RDDAP3 is a ready-to-deploy, global tracking solution that can be active and installed in < 30 seconds; no wires or cables, just an on/off magnet. The RDDAP3 is available to Reseller and Integrator partners globally. Contact us to start using the RDDAP3 today.
