If these folks are going to have GPS and Sat phone, they can give their 
coordinates to who-ever they are checking in with and those folks could 
input these coordinates into a program such as AFilter and send their 
positions to APRS.
If they are worried about being hams, FireNet has port 3272 open for 
non-hams.  These would not be "real-time"
position reports but would be as good, and probably better, than trying to 
get in a satellite shot at an amateur satellite passing by if it passed by 
at all within range of low power equipment.
