The plethora of existing and emerging devices creates a major challenge for systems designers and developers. The Global Alerting Platform is designed specifically to be device agnostic. Through an advanced 'pluggable' architecture we can rapidly integrate practically any device into our platform so you can benefit from all the advanced messaging features and portal services without having to develop and manage your own software and infrastructure.
The Global Alerting Platform has been designed to provide support for devices compliant with the emerging Satellite Emergency Notification Devices (SENDs) standard. This standard, currently being developed by the Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services (RTCM) seeks to address the minimum operating and performance requirements, technical requirements, and/or test procedures, with a view to their use for the production and possible certification of devices.
Outside of the scope of the standards body is the establishment of methods that such devices should use to contact the emergency services either directly or indirectly. This is where GAP comes in to add significant value. GAP provides a device independent means of standardising the communications from any device to the emergency services.
Listed here are the principal supported devices and services.
Iridium Extreme is the toughest,most feature-enhanced satellite phone on the market. It is part of a new force in communication, putting innovative capability into the hands of people everywhere. The Global Alerting Platform is available immediately with full support for online tracking for the new satellite phone. GAP was the first fully approved platform for use with the Iridium Extreme™.

If you already possess a SPOT Personal Tracker or a SPOT GPS Satellite Messenger then it is easy to use these devices on our platform. All you need to do is configure your SPOT device to route its messages to the Global Alerting Platform. The SPOT devices are uni-directional so you only send messages from the device and not to the device but all other features still apply including message routing and translation. For example, you can send a message from your SPOT device and have it delivered to an Iridium SBD device or have your regular position reports automatically update your friends via your favourite social network. Perhaps, more importantly, providing support for these devices allows for mixed deployments and the protection of existing investment.
