LA JOLLA, CA – September 12, 2006 – Blue Sky Network, the global logistics solution provider for two-way linking and managing transportation assets via satellite, today announced its compact Iridium satellite terminals, the D2000M/MD, for land vehicles and marine vessels. This groundbreaking GPS tracking system offers customers two-way communications, and instant web-based tracking and position reporting for fleets of trucks and marine vessels that can be located anywhere in the world.
Building on the strengths of its aircraft flight tracking solutions, the D2000M/MD utilizes a next-generation technology from Iridium, allowing a much smaller form factor and more competitive pricing than previously available. The satellite asset tracking unit is the size of a car stereo and can be easily installed on a land vehicle or marine vessel for instant, global two-way text messaging communications.
Working seamlessly with Blue Sky Network’s SkyRouter, an interactive fleet management Web portal, the D2000M/MD allows land vehicle or marine vessel fleet managers to enjoy the safety and convenience of global satellite tracking for all of their transportation assets – even in the most remote locations. Additionally, dispatch or other parties may send free form two-way text messages via SkyRouter’s fleet management interface directly to the land vehicle or vessel. The D2000M/MD integrates with third party resource allocation or dispatch software. It also features a “quick position” switch to allow for emergency notification.
“The D2000M/MD offers land vehicle or marine vessel operators a great solution in terms of safety and efficiency at a competitive price,” said Jon Gilbert, president of Blue Sky Network. “It is the fleet management workhorse that asset managers have been looking for.”
