The Indigo Xplorer TS is a handheld, global, two-way satellite messaging and personal tracking device.

The Xplorer TS is equipped with a high resolution colour touch-screen LCD and on-screen keyboards, allowing transmission of free-text, canned messages and a combination of both.

An emergency button is used for immediate emergency notifications.
The Indigo Xplorer TS significantly improves service reliability over existing tracking products, by allowing two-way communications and confirmation of the nature of the distress to the operator. This reduces false alarms and helps identify the nature of the emergency, so that the correct assets can be deployed thereby reducing search and rescue costs. It also provides communication feedback capability to the user to assist in rescue efforts.
