In 2001 the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles became the first off-road rally to use a satellite security system (IRITRACK technology).
This permits the organisation to follow each team live by satellite, 24 hours a day, and to ensure optimal security during the competition.
• This material has proven to be physically solid and dependable, and reliable for information transmission.
• The teams are able to send a medical or mechanical alert signal, which is received by the organisation.
With all of the IRITRACK’s technical capabilities, the organisation is able to ensure the safety of all teams.
But technology has its limits, so to mitigate the risk of a malfunction, the organisation has provided a backup system.
Each team also has a second device…a SARSAT distress flare, a device used in aviation, the navy and sporting events all over the world.
In addition, 300 organisers on location assure the comfort and security of the participants throughout the Rallye.
