Situational awareness is critical to your mission. SD GeoServices, Satcom Direct’s geolocation-based technology includes GeoFence and GeoNotifications – including static boundaries and dynamic Route Alerts.
GeoFence is a virtual boundary around a specified area. The geofenced region can be defined based on any geography, including provider coverage areas or a customer-designated perimeter. The GeoFence border determines the area for which a geolocation based alert is triggered.
GeoNotifications are geolocation based alerts that can be generated based on specified proximity, in either time or distance, and can be targeted to specific tail numbers or avionics types which prevents messages that are not applicable to a flight.
Static GeoNotifications give you advance notice when your aircraft is approaching or exiting a defined geographic area – such as when you’re entering and leaving coverage areas for communications services, or approaching sensitive airspace. These alerts can make the difference in maintaining connectivity, completing important tasks, and securing your information.
Route Alerts are based on dynamically updated weather information in your flight path. Automatically alert crews and operations when hazardous weather could impact flights well before the actual event occurs, improving diversion planning and reaction to dealing with weather hazards. Route Alerts is compatible with your existing avionics – and no additional applications are required.
Static and dynamic Route Alert GeoNotifications can be delivered as uplink messages to the flight deck display, or via email for receipt by aircraft occupants and others needing the information.
