Blue Sky Network (BSN), a leading global provider of satellite tracking and fleet management solutions for land mobile, maritime, and aviation assets, is excited to announce that it will be unveiling a new SATCOM technology solution, at both Helitech International and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) – two key aviation industry events – this coming October.
Production models of the Hawkeye (HE) 7200, a new portable satellite tracking device, will be offered at both events, after a successful Beta deployment, earlier this year. Development of the HE7200 has been extensive, incorporating valuable feedback from Beta users and resulting in a device with an impressive set of features and USFS approval. Engineered with a small form factor, the HE7200 comes with an extended life rechargeable battery, Bluetooth communications, the latest generation GNSS chipset (which includes GPS, GLONASS and Galileo technologies), and a highly sensitive internal Iridium and GNSS antenna. BSN will be unveiling the HE7200 at both events and is excited to demonstrate why, this device, working in concert with the company’s HELink App, is the perfect portable satellite tracking solution for aviation users, worldwide.
As is the case with all Blue Sky Network devices, the HE7200 is integrated into SkyRouter, Blue Sky Network’s unique, cloud-based web-portal management tool, designed and operated by Blue Sky Network to support dispersed mobile assets. SkyRouter seamlessly manages and reports device activity over the Iridium Satellite Network in virtual real time. Now, with a vision for incorporating Smart Device capability, Blue Sky Network will unveil its new iOS SkyRouter App at both events. Users will immediately see the advantage of this mobile platform.
Blue Sky Network will be exhibiting at both the Helitech International 2014 show in Amsterdam, followed by the NBAA show in Orlando, Florida, and presenting its entire line-up of impressive satellite communications technologies, including the latest HE7200 and SkyRouter solutions. Both industry events represent important opportunities for BSN to exhibit its leadership in the helicopter and business aviation markets, with a new generation of satellite communication technologies that focus on safety, affordability and rich features. Aviation professionals will be able to see, first-hand, how BSN satellite communication solutions are quickly becoming invaluable and essential components of an aircraft’s operation.
