Iridium recommends Blue Sky Network’s SkyLink for uncrewed aircraft solutions

On December 7, 2022, Iridium conducted a flight trial using American Aerospace’s Uncrewed Aircraft System (UAS), AirRanger. Integrated into this 220-pound fixed-wing UAS was Blue Sky Network’s award-winning SkyLink solution enabling tracking and Command & Control (C2) capabilities.

Based on trial results, Blue Sky Network’s SkyLink device is listed on Iridium’s Minimum Equipment List (MEL) as an industry-recommended product to help enhance communication and safe aircraft spacing. The dual-mode solution can also be used to extend the operations of devices on the ground or in the water for comprehensive use across governments and enterprises.
