Buoy GPS Tracker

Affordable Navigational / Research Buoy Tracking

Whether you are needing positional information on your navigation/research buoys or tracking glaciers, LoneStar Tracking has a rugged and dependable solution that will last years on each deployment. 

With multiple inputs and outputs, a high precision GPS receiver and a GlobalStar transmitter, the buoy tracking system can operate in almost every part of our planet.  Data is transmitted from your buoy to one of 48 satellites orbiting at 876 miles above earth and relayed to a ground station.  Once the data payload has been received by the ground station, it is routed to the LoneStar Tracking servers and made available for our users.  If your organization utilized their own analysis software, a RESTful api is available.
