The RockSTAR is a truly global communication device and tracking system. It allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of WiFi and GSM networks. The tracker will wake up on a regular basis, obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to Rock Seven HQ using the Iridium satellite network in seconds. The message is relayed to Rockstar from Iridium, and then we visualize the positions on an easy-to-use web-based viewer. The RockSTAR also allows short messages (like SMS, social media updates and short emails) to be sent using a paired Bluetooth device (such as a smartphone) and the Messenger app. This allows for full two-way communication wherever you are, even when out of mobile network range. RockSTAR uses the Iridium Satellite network. Specifically, it uses an Iridium service called 'Short Burst Data' (SBD). There's some official info here. At the heart of RockSTAR is an Iridium 9602 modem. Iridium Certified.

Reliability Above All sm

In early 2019, Iridium completed the $3 billion Iridium NEXT mission, which completely replaced the first-generation Iridium constellation. With an upgraded network, Iridium is poised now more than ever to meet the growing demand for global communications on land, at sea, and in the skies – far into the future.
