The portable, effective AFF system to efficiently track and manage air fleets
Spider S6 Portable Flight Monitor
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.
Iridium Satellite Network
Global coverage is provided in real time by 66 low earth-orbit satellites, with the information reaching the website in as little as 5 seconds.
Efficient, integrated three-button keypad for convenient operation. Integrated GPS and Iridium antennas eliminate the need for external antennas and allow for quick transfer between aircraft.
Allows the pilot to send an instant SOS to pre-set support contacts. Pilots or administrators of accounts set their own SOS recipient details online.
Set automatic takeoff and landing notifications through the website or press the Mark button to send position reports manually.
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.
Allows you to send tracking data to third parties in real time, including US Forest Service, or share information with maintenance tracking software.
Speed up & Slow down Reports
The Spider can send a position report when accelerating through a set speed (between 10 and 50 knots) and when going back down through the speed trigger.
Change of Direction Reports
The Spider can send a position report when the direction, from the last sent position report, changes more than the set angle. Angles allowed range from 30 to 90 degrees. This allows you to set the position reporting rate at a higher rate (for example 10 minutes on the Flexi-Plan) and then have the Spider only send more often if the aircraft changes direction significantly.
Know when something isn't right. Your aircraft can now alert you to changes in altitude and send position updates in real time.
Suspend position reports in a predefined circular area around your current location. Normal tracking will resume once you leave that area. The radius distance can be customized online. Only available with iOS Bluetooth hardware.
The Spider S6 collects and stores more detailed flight tracks data onboard the Spider to be downloaded after the flight.
Spidertxt Two-Way Text Messaging (Scheduled upgrade later in 2015)
Communicate with your pilots from anywhere in the world. Connect with your iPhone, iPad, or Android device through Bluetooth and send SMS messages and e-mails through the Iridium system.
Bluetooth GPS (Scheduled upgrade later in 2015)
Spider GPS sharing can send GPS data to your mobile devices, allowing your navigation apps to work reliably when you are out of cell reception.
