 +Wanted a inexpensive GSM/GPS backup tracker for our [[HABEX2]] project.
 +There are a couple out on the market. ​ Things for tracking your pets and such.
 +But instead of buying one, we wanted to make one that's easily hackable and could be configured specifically for the HABEX mission.
 +
 +At the core of the tracker is simcom'​s SIM908 module.
 +{{:​sim908.jpg?​200}}
 +
 +The module works on the GSM 850MHz, EGSM 900MHz, DCS 1800MHz and PCS 1900MHz frequencies.
 +It can also do multi-slot class 10 GPRS. (85kbps down/ 42kbps down max)
 +It contains an GPS receiver and a real time clock.
 +The NSL tracker board will use an ATMEGA2560 MCU and an FTD232RL for USART to USB.
 +{{:​tracker.jpg?​400}}
 +
 +The board also has a mic and an accelerometer for motion detection.
 +All powered by a [[http://​www.batteryspace.com/​Customize-Polymer-Li-Ion-battery-Module-UL-listed-3.7-V-2000mAh.aspx|Li-Po battery]] that will be recharged directly from the board.
