GPS Satellite Tracking Methane Gas Pump

Our GPS Satellite Tracking unit monitors methane gas removal pumps in mines to ensure a high level of safety. Once present in the mine atmosphere, methane can be easily ignited. The only way to prevent fire damps from exploding is to find and address them before they ignite.  We use satellite communications to relay pump status . If the pump shuts down or has mechanical issues, the GPS satellite tracking system will report and so problems can be avoided.. 

Satellite Tracking GPS AnyPlace

satellite communications solution

Our Satellite Tracker has integrated satellite transceiver, antenna and separate input/outputs. The system may stand alone or be used with an existing GPS system. It can be configured as a simple modem or integrated controller with a series of actuators and sensors.

In light of the heavy investment required to own and utilize backhoes, trucks, tractors, excavators, graders and wheel loaders, it is vital to monitor heavy equipment. It is not financially viable for users to have costly machinery vanish, break down or work under their production potential. Our inexpensive terminals communicate by satellite and make available information based on usage and location for the monitoring, managing and tracking of equipment.


Remote Equipment Monitoring

In regions where there is no cellular coverage, where construction enterprises often take place, satellite communication terminals function dependably and keep communications open.


Scope of Equipment Tracking

Track and monitor all types of equipment of any type, brand or age, as well as job site buildings, gates, pumps, generators, pumps and security sensors.


Prevent Failure of Equipment and Cut Cost of Upkeep

Monitor equipment hours and mileage to ascertain proper maintenance schedules to take the guesswork out of the equation.


Improve equipment usage.

Use GPS information and two-way satellite communications to rapidly trace heavy equipment and ensure they are working at greatest efficiency.


Reduce equipment malfunction and reduced maintenance expenses

Track mileage and the number of hours that equipment is utilized. Use this data to schedule maintenance – no more guessing.


Reduce fuel use.

Receive alerts when equipment is idling for too long in order to diminish wear on equipment and fuel consumption.


Permit authorized use only.

Use geofencing, electronic timesheets and blackout hours to ensure that equipment is only being used during standard business hours at designated work sites. Obtain alarm notifications when equipment is used beyond approved areas and during evenings and weekends.


Theft security.

Distantly lock or immobilize equipment on vehicles to thwart theft.


Diminish speeding

Ensure vehicles are being operated at safe speeds outside of work areas to ensure safety of driver and safeguard vehicles. Get warning notifications when speeding is detected or an accident has occurred.



The mining industry spends millions of dollars in vehicles, trucks, heavy equipment and expert human resources. Ensuring their well being and security is a must to care for lives, care for investment, reduce operating costs and ensure uninterrupted operation. Because cellular-based tracking and monitoring equipment characteristically does not operate around and between mine sites, mining companies depend on satellite communications. SkyWave offers inexpensive satellite communication terminals and air-time that afford crucial GPS location and utilization information for tracking and monitoring equipment. Users of SkyWave products enjoy the following benefits:


Ensure security of drivers and other personnel.

Use GPS information and panic buttons to guarantee safety of vehicles and drivers when transporting material between sites.


Manage Fleets and Optimize Equipment Utilization

GPS data along with two-way satellite communications can be used to rapidly find heavy equipment and ensure that they are working to their full potential.
