  • Tracking & Safety services such as the satellite-based Iritrack or Worldtrack tracking systems and distress beacons, often mandatory equipment to all racers. The tracking devices track the competitor in real-time and enable the transmission of alarms to the HQ in case of emergency. With Iritrack, the competitor can even make a hands-free phone call via the inbuilt voice capabilities. During the race, Marlink’s field engineers are in charge of the technical maintenance of the fleet of tracking devices. They also assist the safety staff at the operational centre (HQ), in the field or remotely, in monitoring the race to ensure the safety throughout the event.
  • Satellite links to enable Internet access on camps to the organisation, competitors and press teams. Our field engineers are constantly on the move as they follow every stage of the race. Each day, they arrive on a new camp and link up VSAT antennas to get the camp connected.
  • Communication means for voice communications and Internet access in the field in the scope of sat phones, broadband terminals, walkie talkies, Voice over IP, Wi-Fi et WiMAX solutions
  • Airborne radio networks are deployed to enable voice communications between the field staff and the local control centre. The organisation vehicles such as the medical teams and sweep vehicles are equipped with radio receivers in order to dispatch prompt assistance to injured or stranded competitors.

Formerly known as TDCOM, part of Vizada Group, the company has developed over the years a wide range of satellite, radio & GSM products offering comprehensive communication solutions for data and voice transmissions, as well as fully managed data services for asset and personnel tracking. For example, Iritrack, our in-house designed tracking device, is present on many cross-country rallies worldwide ensuring the safety of the racers with a combination of real-time satellite tracking, safety sensors and a two-way voice communication function.
