Since its inception in Canada back in 1996, Datalink has been creating advanced wireless communication solutions, with an emphasis on security and tracking of personnel and assets. Government Agencies in many countries, including the Dept of Justice and Dept' of State in the USA and overseas in the U.K. France and Australia use Datalink hardware and software to track and protect field personnel.

Our seasoned team of Engineers have developed a wide variety of solutions for diverse applications, including:

  • Terrestrial and satellite links for local and long distance transportation companies.
  • Wireless tracking and protection of lone workers
  • SCADA remote monitoring of pumping stations, oil and gas facilities, water reservoirs and remote generators
  • Live satellite monitoring of railroad trains in any country
  • Bespoke government tracking solutions including encrypted wireless transmissions

Datalink Systems developed an officer-down personal emergency unit to be worn by police officers. When a panic button was pressed, the signal was transmitted to the patrol car where a Datalink black-box unit processed the data and re-transmitted over CDPD to a DataGate located in the police department's server. DataGate would re-transmit the data to a number of PCs on the LAN.

The system was designed by Datalink and became active in 2001.


Datalink Systems was contracted by the U.S. Deptartment of Justice to develop a variant of DataGate for secure tracking of field operatives in Central America, providing fast emergency response. Personal communication devices worn by the field operatives would link to their vehicle where the data was re-transmitted over MSV-MSAT1 to a base DataGate. The DataGate would process the data and re-transmit to selected pagers.

The system was designed by Datalink and became active in 2002.


Datalink Systems developed software to allow tracking of fire fighting aircraft operated by the Department of Environment and Conservation of the Western Australian Government. This entailed processing data transmitted by Inmarsat D+ satellite terminals on aircraft, then writing the data to an Oracle database and further to detailed map screens.

DataGate IP routing software installed in one of DEC's servers controlled the flow and distribution of data.

Datalink's partner in this project was ASTA (Applied Satellite Technologies Australia).


Datalink Systems developed a city wide monitoring and data relay system that would allow LoJack equipped vehicles to be located quickly when stolen.

CARSEG (LoJack franchisee) placed a number of monitors on roof tops around the city, with each site equipped with a TAIT T2010 UHF transceiver and Datalink's intelligent modem. Data packets were relayed via other sites across the city to the base office where a DataGate processed the data and displayed it on a screen. Receiver signal triangulation located the stolen vehicle in a specific neighborhood followed by a tracker car and Police being dispatched to recover the vehicle.

The system was designed by Datalink and became active in 2000.

Datalink's partner in this project was CARSEG, S.A. based in Guayaquil, Ecuador.


Datalink Systems was contracted to develop and supply a highly secure satellite based tracking and emergency alert system to track trains moving nuclear waste across the USA. A satellite terminal located on the train transmitted the data over the MSV MSAT1 satellite to the ground station, where it was them re-transmitted over MSAT1 to a satellite receiver located on the monitoring company's building. This data path was considered more secure than any terrestrial alternative.

The system was designed by Datalink and became active in 2002.
