STINGR

Satellite Transmitter Integrated GPS Receiver


Globalstar has introduced a complete tracking solution in a single module which dramatically reduces the design effort required to help customers build compact and efficient satellite communications devices. Using the Globalstar Simplex data network, the STINGR allows information to be transmitted from areas well beyond the reach of reliable cellular coverage around the globe.

The STINGR is a low cost, OEM simplex module which sends one-way data messages via the Globalstar Simplex Network. The module includes a high-performance GPS receiver as well as an on-board dual band antenna which greatly simplifies the effort of integrating satellite communications into a tracking or monitoring device. The STINGR is ideal for delivering remote sensing, tracking, and monitoring applications.

Coverage Maps

Please Note: 

S.O.S. coverage for Sat-Fi2 only applies to the areas shown above. Sat-Fi2 antenna must be fully extended in order to enable the S.O.S. feature.

The Caller I.D. and SMS text messaging for Sat-Fi are NOT available outside the Home Zone. Voice calls and data transmissions for Sat-Fi will work the same as regular voice/duplex outside the Home Zone according to the following service areas:

 
Orange Block Primary Coverage
Fringe Coverage Diagonal Lines Fringe Coverage
(Customers should expect to experience weakest signal)

 
Temporarily Out of Service
Temporarily Out of Service Customers who have purchased their SPOT Global Phone/Globalstar phone outside of this area: Roaming is not currently available when traveling to the following countries and surrounding ocean areas: Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and Antarctica. Your phone will not work in these areas, however we are working toward resolving this.


Home Zone Green Border Home Zone
Within the Home Zone, Globalstar North American customers can freely roam without incurring additional airtime costs. This map is intended to highlight Home Zone coverage for Orbit and Galaxy customers in North America. Coverage is subject to change without notice.

Completion rates based on Remote Telemetry Units (RTU) that are set to transmit a single packet message 3-times (the original transmission plus 2-repeats) in the frequency appropriate for the given regions. This is an estimate of coverage only. Actual Remote Telemetry coverage may vary based on terminal location, terrain features, signal strength, and other factors affecting satellite communications. Coverage may vary. Specifications subject to change without notice. This map indicates areas of potential satellite coverage only. Actual availability of service in any particular country may be subject to government approval.
