Spider X

Revolutionising Flight Data Monitoring.

Spider X - Side on
Building on the advanced functionality and seamless design of its predecessors, Spider X has been thoughtfully crafted by Spidertracks - specifically for aviators - to be the industry gold-standard solution for aircraft monitoring, communications, and data insights.

Capable of providing more aircraft insights than ever to enhance your safety and efficiency, Spider X revolutionises flight data monitoring (FDM) - making it readily available to all operators with a simple to install, cost effective, light-weight solution.

Virtual FDR™ evolves: Digitising the analogue

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 GPS 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.

We’re just getting started.

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.

Beautifully designed for aviation.

Built in-house by Spidertracks, specifically for aviation, Spider X is a small, lightweight device with sleek curves and a black finish. The device seamlessly integrates with your aircraft using straightforward ‘plug-and-play’ technology.

A large SOS button is prominent and easy to press if required - alerting your specified contacts. Intelligently designed lighting allows for a distraction and glare free experience, while still conveying key status notifications

Easily mount Spider X on the cockpit glare shield, or out of sight with an external antenna and keypad.
