GAP in the clouds!

I’ve devoted quite a lot of my time in recent months leading the development of a really cool Azure hosted tracking and visualisation platform. Known as the Global Alerting Platform, or GAP for short, it offers a way for any GPS enabled device with comms to be tracked and monitored. The reason for this post, is to share that it is being used for an exciting trip up Mt. Everest. We were approached by Iridium some time ago to develop the protocol for a new satellite phone. Known as the Extreme, this hanset will be carried by the Everest team and tracked by GAP.
