Reliable Worldwide APRS Tracking
Light weight – the StratoTrack weighs only 30 g (1 oz), including battery and antenna!
Small size – the entire tracker circuitry fits on the back side of a single AA battery case.
20 dBm transmitter – allows for most APRS stations within line-of-sight to receive the tracker’s signal. It is not uncommon to see APRS ground stations over 400 km (250 miles) pick up the StratoTrack signal when flying in the stratosphere.
Easy to use – no wiring of additional electronics required. Simply insert a single AA battery and launch.
Easy to fly – since it is so light, simply suspend it directly below your parachute on the flight line. No need to reconfigure your payload.
Smart frequency – the StratoTrack automatically knows which APRS frequency to use based on its location anywhere in the world.
Low power modes – the StratoTrack can transmit for up to one week, day and night, on a single AA battery. This allows for easy tracking of endurance flights.
Sensor suite – the StratoTrack has a temperature sensor for studying the upper atmosphere as well as a voltage sensor for monitoring battery health.
By default, the StratoTrack transmits once per minute. This can be changed to once per 5 minutes or once per 15 minutes. Approximate battery life is as follows:
once per minute - 24 hr
once per 5 minutes - 96 hr
once per 15 minutes - 168 hr (7 days)
