You operate partly outside the mobile phone network.
You want to send a duress or man down signal to raise help or indicate your GPS position.
You would like an option for text alert, email or voice communication.
Communications can be direct to satellite or via an in-vehicle solution.
Where is this system used?
These solutions allow users to send a duress and person-down alerts via satellite and are designed for use in regions outside of the mobile phone networks. In the basic application, a duress alert sends satellite coordinates to web-based maps and simultaneously sends text or email messages to designated numbers or addresses. More advanced systems allow voice communication.

Spot Gen 3 Satellite Messenger
Spot Messenger is a small transmitter worn on the belt or arm that allows you to contact friends, associates or emergency services in the event of accident or injury when you’re out
of mobile phone coverage. Pressing one of the buttons sends different levels of warning via satellite to arrive at your chosen contact by SMS or email and allows them to locate or even track you via a web-based mapping service.
Note that this technology requires sight of the satellite to operate as this is the only method of signal transmission.
Five levels of contact:

custom message for tailored notification
track progress for continuous tracking
ask for help: emergency level 1
SOS: serious emergency
the web-based tracking plan is mandatory.
