GEOS supports a number of devices and applications today and is continuously adding additional solutions that meet our criteria. The devices and applications we support can be either cellular or satellite based solutions, but have one thing in common; they are used to save lives in case of emergency. Whether it is a manual distress signal or an automated signal transmitted from the device the team at the IERCC are trained and ready to jump into action.
Once the business case has been made the device or application will be integrated into the GEOS Emergency Communication System technology as the first step. Next, all of the supported devices undergo extensive testing by GEOS and the IERCC, testing integration, accuracy, ease-of-use and other criteria that GEOS has deemed necessary.
Once all of these steps are successful the device, application or service provider can now offer GEOS IERCC emergency monitoring support.
With regard to the satellite-based solutions we support, each device is required to adhere to the Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services (RTCM) Working Group SC-128 Satellite Emergency Notification Device (SEND) standard. Some of the early satellite devices we support are one-way devices as noted below, while the newer devices coming to the market are two-way alerting and communication devices.

GEOS supports a number of cellular based applications, some of which serve very specific market segments such as Lone Worker, School and Workplace Safety and Vehicle Crash Detection. Others are more generally targeted at individual or family safety. Click on the company logos below to learn more.
