Overview

The Spider 8 is a global real-time aircraft tracking solution that utilizies the Iridium satellite network to always be connected to your aircraft. The Spider 8 is the first of Spidertrack products to include a Universal Aircraft Interface (UAI). The UAI enables operators to detect and transmit various discrete inputs and outputs through the Spider and the Spidertracks platform from anywhere in the world (e.g. engine on/off and takeoff/landing).

    Global Real-Time Aircraft Tracking
  • Thanks to the reliability and comprehensive coverage of the Iridium satellite network, you’ll always be connected to your aircraft — no matter where they are in the world.
    Unlimited Platform Access
  • Our platform allows you unlimited viewing of past tracks and the ability to view tracks from all your aircraft on one screen.
    Flight Distress Detection
  • If an incident occurs and the Spider loses power, Automated Watch will send an SOS message after 15 minutes of no communication
    Manual SOS Reporting
  • The SOS button on the keypad can be used to send instant alert messages to your preset emergency contacts.
    Spidertracks’ Emergency Management Framework (EMF)
  • Our EMF can automatically detect an SOS state and alert your support team without the involvement of your pilots or dispatchers.
    Spidertracks AFF/API
  • Spidertracks is AFF-compliant — allowing you to send tracking data to third parties in real-time.
    One-Way Preset Messages
  • Use the Mark button to manually send preset emails or SMS messages from the cockpit.
    VFR/IFR Sectional Overlays
  • Boost your operational situational awareness with our free VFR/IFR sectional overlays for the flying page on the desktop platform.
    Speed up/Slow Down notification
  • Know more about what’s going on with your aircraft. Set custom alerts and notifications when each event is triggered.
    External Antenna Input
  • Have an aircraft with a heated windshield? The Spider 8 allows you to plug into an external GPS/Iridium antenna.
    External Keypad
  • With our new external keypad, you can mount the Spider 8 so it’s out of the way while still having access to its main buttons.
    Altitude Event Alerts
  • Know when something isn’t right. Your Spider automatically monitors rate of climb and descent and can immediately alert you if your limits are exceeded.

Features

  • Need to put your Spider someplace other than the dashboard? Not a problem with the 8.
  • Mount the keypad wherever you need for easy access, regardless of where you’ve placed the Spider.
  • Spidertxt 2.0 allows you unlimited communication, even in remote areas. Experience its power alongside the Spider 8.
