    GPS Cutaway Tracking

    The subscription model can bee moot if you also make a "Remote area base receiver" like a mobile cell tower that works for ~1mile. This way, a dropzone that has a bunch of people and difficult area of operation can buy a base station for everyone who jumps there. No yearly cost for network, no sim cards no ransom-ware fees. I built a similar thing a few years ago with an RFID sticker and a long range pinger. The maximum range I got was only 50 feet so it is useless for skydiving but OK for finding things around the yard. Rough maximum size should be about the size of a golf ball. Just for reference: the main canopy activation handle comes in various sizes but most of them are hacky sacks. I think that the size and weight will matter less if we attach it to the deployment bag or the canopy directly. It would be more critical for attaching to risers. This size should work for general rig and helmet inventory tracking purposes. There are no dangerous dives Only dangerous divers

    GPS Cutaway Tracking

    Chris, Some skydiving locations have spotty reception and this is exacerbated by trees, ponds, rocks... The $60/year charge is a bitter pill to swallow. Is there a way to do a "pay per use" model. Like: you just pay for the tracker then only if you lose your canopy, pay $20 for the pinging to work? Installing in the pilot chute was my first thought too. Take a look here:http://www.chutingstar.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/1200x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/m/i/miragehandles_1.jpg The little ball is the activation handle for the main canopy. it is the size of a hacky sack. But you probably can attach it anywhere on the canopy (Dbag, risers, slider... these are all places that the skydivers here know). If this can send 600 pings per charge and only turns on after the cutaway happens than there should be no problem to charge once a month, keep it passive until the cutaway. Even if it just sends one ping once it lands with GPS coordinates accurate to 50 feet...then this is a good thing. What I would like to see is a tracker that is permanently attached. I charge it once a month or just make sure it is charged before I jump. (so even if it is inside the packjob, I am fine). The tracker can be totally passive for hundreds of jumps. If there is a cutaway then it turns on and sends pings once a minute until it stops moving. Then one ping each 10 minutes for 24 hours then once an hour until it dies. The ping can go to a website with GPS coordinates. You only pay to access the website without a yearly subscription. Just to give you some perspective about frequency of occurrence. The average cutaway frequency is once every 700 jumps (Not trying to start an argument just giving the guy some idea...). Some skydivers will not cut away in several years. Paying 60$/year is a bit harsh especially if I buy 2 or 3 of these things. There are no dangerous dives Only dangerous divers
