The HawkEye 7200A satellite tracking device meets and exceeds the proposed International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System (GADSS) required performance criteria for Transport Aircraft. Over the next several years, Air Transport Operators will be required to equip aircraft with enabling hardware products that are married to back-end services to support the ICAO GADSS vision. These units will have to autonomously identify abnormal circumstances in flight and may also have to be “tamper-proof” with independence from the ship’s power.
With the HawkEye 7200A and SkyRouter, the industry leading cloud-based web portal, there is no reason to wait—the building blocks are available now. Blue Sky Network offers operators a “best-in-class” ICAO GADSS solution designed to meet all the expected requirements.
Stay Connected At All Times
SkyRouter—Blue Sky Network’s advanced cloud-based web portal—brings another unrivaled quality to the HawkEye 7200A. Through SkyRouter, operators can easily view and manage aircraft communication at any location in the world at any given time. Maximizing the power of SkyRouter gives operators complete control and visibility of aircraft activity.
In the circumstance that aircraft communication has been defined by the operator as abnormal, SkyRouter will monitor these and route alerts locally and via SMS or email as instructed. With the occurrence of a distress event on the aircraft, while in flight, the operator will receive reports at an accelerated rate—everything is customizable at the discretion of the operator.
Light As Air, More Powerful Than Ever
Supported by Iridium’s powerful global network, the HawkEye 7200A weighs only one pound and boasts the most advanced technology on today’s market. Its high grade GNSS receiver incorporates GPS and GLONASS for double-level tracking with exceptional accuracy.
Blue Sky Network’s flexible firmware platform also allows for easy remote upgrades to onboard hardware as the evolution of performance based GADSS criteria changes. The unprecedented small form factor of the HawkEye 7200A was designed to allow the unit to replace the required #2 ELT (a pending ICAO proposal).
