Spider X lifts Virtual FDR™ and your FOQA capabilities to new heights. In addition to the enhanced tracking resolution introduced in the initial release of Virtual FDR, Spider X now provides AHRS data - enabling the clearest picture yet of your aircraft’s flight path and movements.
Mission-critical data (such as location, speed, altitude, direction) are transmitted via Iridium every minute, with the additional AHRS data transferred to the Spidertracks platform over the air*. No need to mess around with SD cards, cables, or software to get information off your aircraft - it all happens automatically.
Spider X is packed with forward-thinking tech such as WiFi, cellular, Bluetooth, USB-C, and serial port interface capability, to provide the ideal development and integration platform as we continue to push the status quo and innovate for the industry. Plus, the firmware updates wirelessly - so no need to connect to a computer to enjoy the latest features.
Equipped with aviation-safe backup power, in the form of a smartly implemented supercapacitor, mitigating the overwhelming risks associated with Lithium-ion batteries on aircraft. This backup power source holds up to 2-minutes of power upon engine-off - allowing for accurate last-known position data to be transmitted, and avoiding unnecessary risk.
Keeping your assets and team safe is our core mission. Spider X allows you to track your fleet anywhere in the world, regardless of cell reception, and be automatically notified in case of emergency with our patented Spiderwatch™ automated watch feature.
Spidertxt provides two-way messaging to your nominated air or land-based personnel. Message aircraft-to-aircraft, aircraft-to-ground, and ground-to-ground — from anywhere in the world - even when you are outside cellular range.
We partner with Iridium, and trust their industry leading global satellite network to deliver mission critical data at one-minute intervals to the Spidertracks platform, on-time, every time, without exception. You can be assured that your aircraft will stay connected anywhere on the planet - regardless of local cellular reception and infrastructure.
