Blue Sky Network designs and builds satellite aircraft tracking systems that meet the exact needs of the Search and Rescue industry. A quick response time, precision coordinates and extreme reliability are critical components for disaster communication. With our comprehensive SATCOM and GSM solutions, Search and Rescue teams utilizing Blue Sky Network aircraft tracking system products never lose communication – even in the most remote terrain and demanding weather. When performance, reliability and precision are paramount, look to the leader in Search & Rescue satellite systems and emergency communications products – Blue Sky Network.
Through the Iridium constellation of low Earth-orbiting (LEO) satellites, tracking frequency can be set on SkyRouter, up to once every 15 seconds.
The server can communicate with the device and request a position report via the Ping function.
Pressing the Quick Position (QPOS) button triggers your device into distress-mode reporting, and will increase reporting frequency. Distress-mode reporting is fully configurable via SkyRouter.
Remote Parameter Updates
Remotely update device parameters and trigger event-based situational or circumstantial reporting. Device parameters are fully configurable via SkyRouter.
Geofences can be stored on the device and will trigger conditional, geofence-based reporting as soon as one is entered.
Geofence Advanced Features
Set up both circular and polygonal geofences, automated alerts and compound rules through the SkyRouter platform.
Many devices support two-way messaging, allowing constant communication between you and your assets.
Leverage Bluetooth technology and communicate in-flight using a smartphone or tablet via the HawkEye Link app.
Min En-Route Event
Receive an alert when the altitude for an en-route segment no longer provides adequate reception of relevant navigation facilities and ATS communications, and no longer provides the required obstacle clearance.
Devices can be configured for altitude-based reporting, and can in some cases autonomously detect anomalies in-flight.
Auto Takeoff & Landing
Devices can be automatically set to begin reporting upon take-off and will stop reporting at the end of the journey.
Serial Data Collection
Data from a journey can be collected and exported for further analysis.
Use the device to make standard phone calls.
= capability is possible with additional hardware.
The FAA-certified D1000A Satellite Communication System is designed for permanent installation into fixed wing or rotary aircraft. Installed D1000 products communicate directly through the Iridium global satellite network to SkyRouter – the world’s most comprehensive cloud-based fleet management and Automated Flight Following system.
For portable or handheld satellite search and rescue technology, the Blue Sky Network Hawkeye-series of products offers the ultimate grab-n-go convenience without sacrificing performance, precision or reliability. Compatibility with Smartphones and Tablets offer communication flexibility and a cost/value ratio that is unmatched in today’s aviation technology marketplace.
