Blue Sky Network HawkEye 7200
Blue Sky Network, a principal supplier of satellite tracking and communication solutions for aviation, land and marine, has launched the HawkEye 7200 portable M2M tracking solution. The HawkEye 7200 includes features such as multi-national global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver support and integrated Bluetooth for Iridium connectivity to smart devices. Designed in a small form, the HawkEye 7200 can be powered by battery or via an external power source.
The HawkEye 7200 is Blue Sky Network’s first product to incorporate a multi-national GNSS receiver. It combines the major GNSS providers into a single location-based chip that can be used in other parts of the world including GLONASS for Russia and the GALILEO for the European Union. This multi-national GNSS receiver feature enables fleet operators with globally dispersed assets to obtain position reports with increased accuracy and performance. When used with New SkyRouter, Blue Sky Network’s cloud-based web-portal, the HawkEye 7200 offers portable tracking and resource management of any asset type across the globe. The HawkEye 7200 hosts an RS232 interface and digital inputs/outputs for connectivity and control of external sensors or other telematics devices.
With the integrated Bluetooth connectivity, the HawkEye 7200 supports Blue Sky Network’s new iPhone/iPad application. The application allows users to send emails, short-code messages and customizable electronic forms through the Iridium network. With the ability for operators to build and fully customize forms – such as flight plans, maintenance records, and logistic records of remote assets – HawkEye 7200 supports the industry’s movement towards paperless fleet operations.
The new HawkEye 7200 is in process of being certified by Iridium, with production expected in Q4 2013. For more information on Blue Sky Network's products, please visit: www.blueskynetwork.com.
