Special Notice for RF-ITV PDK and PDK Lite Users
Per earlier guidance, PDK/PDK Lite users would be required to submit an Operational Needs Statement (ONS) and receive HQDA 3/5/7 approval prior to ordering new Iridium SIM cards. We have since been notified by HQDA G4 of an exception to that policy: Any equipment (e.g., PDK /PDK Lite/PDK II) with an approved LIN does not require an ONS.

Satellite Tag GT-1100 Battery Issue
Problem: The version of firmware on these devices has an issue where the processor checked the battery voltage provided by the solar panel instead of the battery, giving the processor a false impression that the battery had sufficient capacity to operate. This caused the device to shut down before completing its boot cycle and it was not able to recover on its own.
Solution: To avoid this issue in the future, the bootloader and application firmware should be updated to the latest version which has incorporated fixes for these issues. Units currently in production have the current firmware and will avoid this issue. This version of firmware has been released for nearly a year.
Plan of Action: Unfortunately, the bootloader needs to be updated locally. For cost and expediency purposes, we recommend the Navy open a support ticket at Caution-www.savi.com; the customer will be instructed to ship the units to ORBCOMM so they can update the firmware and charge the batteries, then return them.
