Open Passage Expedition
Blue Sky Network is a proud sponsor of the Open Passage Expedition whose mission is to draw awareness to global warming issues and the impact as warmer temperatures force Arctic communities and the wildlife around them to change their habits to survive.
Equipped with BSN’s D2000 satellite tracking solution and an Iridium 9555 satellite phone, the 40-foot yacht Silent Sound embarked on a voyage sailing the Northwest Passage. The goal of this carbon-neutral expedition is to use written word, video and photos to tell the story of how climate change is affecting Arctic communities. With only four crew members and limited time before the winter ice returns, the Open Passage Expedition is undertaking a grueling voyage of modern day adventure and discovery.
Blue Sky Network is a pioneer in the development of satellite tracking and two-way communication for remotely active private, commercial, and government fleets worldwide. Our core business is leveraging the Iridium satellite network with our superior engineered tracking and communication hardware integrated with our industry-leading cloud based Command Center – SkyRouter.
Our “best-of-breed” components are built on our ideas married with customer input like variable rate tracking reports based on time and/or distance or virtual geo-fences, and integrating current technologies, like robust Bluetooth connectivity. We’ve lead the market with advanced engineered solutions like dual-mode (GSM-Iridium) satellite tracking devices that take care of least cost routing in overlapping coverage environments.
