Globalstar Europe Satellite Services has announced a new partnership with Perth & Kinross Council in Scotland which will see its SPOT Gen4 devices deployed in Scotland to help workers in rural, isolated, and hazardous locations. Globalstar announced the partnership March 23. Globalstar has integrated the Trackplot lone worker monitoring solution into its devices to bring more features to these particular workers.

Globalstar launched its SPOT Gen4 device late last year. Globalstar’s SPOT satellite devices provide security and emergency support to employees for a growing number of governmental and non-governmental entities across the world. Globalstar reports that around 7,500 rescues have been attributed to SPOT satellite technology around the world, to date.

Perth & Kinross is a remote area in Scotland. The council uses Trackplot’s lone worker protection system to monitor and safeguard the structures and flooding team of specialists charged with inspecting all the region’s bridges for structural soundness and security, and to mitigate flooding. Trackplot has been supporting the Council since 2010.

“Together with Trackplot, we are delighted that SPOT Gen4 has now taken up the baton in safeguarding the council’s lone workers,” Gary King, Globalstar’s SPOT regional sales manager said in a statement.
