Blue Sky Network has launched a new global tracking solution for operations that utilize assets in multiple locations.
The HawkEye 7200 portable M2M tracking solution features multi-national global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver support and integrated Bluetooth for Iridium connectivity to smart devices. It can be powered by battery or via an external power source.
The product is the first from Blue Sky 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.
According to the company, by using a multi-national GNSS receiver, fleet operators with globally dispersed assets can 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, and features Bluetooth connectivity.
Users can also utilize a new iPhone/iPad application to send emails, short-code messages and customizable electronic forms through the Iridium network. There is also the ability for operators to build and fully customize forms.
“Blue Sky Network is a long-time member of the Iridium partner ecosystem and is continuously delivering cutting-edge M2M communication solutions targeting new markets,” said Bryan Hartin, executive vice president, commercial sales and marketing of Iridium. “The HawkEye 7200 is yet another solution from Blue Sky Network that offers powerful capabilities and applications that utilize the Iridium network. Together we are providing customers with critical connectivity worldwide.”
