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.


Quick Position

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.

Device-Side Geofences

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.


Altitude Reporting

Devices can be configured for altitude-based reporting, and in some cases, can 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.

= capability is possible with additional hardware.
