The Yellowbrick tracker is a rugged and fully self-contained battery operated tracker which works anywhere on Earth.

They can either be rented, for short periods of time or specific events, or purchased.

The Yellowbrick will wake up every so often (e.g. every 15 minutes), obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to an online map, which can be embedded in your website, or viewed directly.

Iridium is the only satellite network that allows transmission of information from any point on Earth – other networks have no coverage in the polar regions, and have intermittent or no coverage in other marine and land areas.

Iridium has 66 satellites in orbit around the Earth, allowing coverage anywhere on Earth 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No other satellite network has truly global coverage.Messages sent via Iridium take just seconds to reach Yellowbrick HQ. Depending how often the Yellowbrick is set to transmit, they can last for up to 300 days on their internal battery.
