for constant fleet tracking, 2-way messaging and safety alerts
La Jolla, CA – August 21, 2007 – Blue Sky Network, the global logistics solution provider for two-way linking and managing transportation assets via satellite, today announced the latest addition to its asset and fleet tracking product line with the D3000 transceiver. This solution is unique in its combination of Iridium Satellite and GSM/GPRS connectivity, offering the advantages and cost-efficiency of dual connectivity, along with new security features, GPS integration, global remote asset tracking and two-way text messaging.
From anywhere on the globe, the D3000 enables communication, asset tracking, trip and event reports and secure, interactive, online mapping services. With both GMS/GPRS and Iridium Satellite connectivity, the D3000 provides least-cost routing, automatically switching communications to utilize the most economic connection available. The portable and lightweight device is installed into a land vehicle or marine vessel quickly and simply, deriving power directly from the vehicle or vessel itself. Controlled from a high resolution LCD display and an easy to use keypad, the D3000 can optionally be configured with voice capability for Iridium Satellite or GSM.
To expedite supply chain and fleet management in remote or dangerous conditions, the D3000 also includes the vehicle and personnel security features of panic alerting and geo-fencing. Vessel and vehicle operators can activate various alerts to preconfigured cell phones and email addresses and can also have an alert displayed for dispatchers and fleet managers on the SkyRouter map interface.
“The D3000 significantly improves efficiency and safety of various land or marine fleets worldwide which operate in hostile or generally inaccessible locations,” said Jon Gilbert, president, founder and CEO of Blue Sky Network. “No location is out of reach or communication range, granting organizations and fleet managers an entirely new level of global access and security.”
The D3000 works in connection with SkyRouter, Blue Sky Network’s asset management portal. This web-based software is used for asset tracking and communications and integrates easily with Google Earth. The onboard unit transmits reports from the remote assets directly to the site for review by operations, dispatch or even customers, providing a real-time view of asset locations and easy communication of new or rescheduled jobs.
