Blue Sky Network announced today that its new AVR (advanced variable response) geo-fencing capabilities will be demonstrated at the upcoming HAI Heli-Expo tradeshow in Anaheim, California, February 25 – 26, 2014, Booth 2609. The new geo-fencing technology will be showcased in Blue Sky Network’s new portable HawkEye 7200, a small mobile device designed specifically for Iridium & GNSS satellite tracking of aviation, land/mobile or marine assets.
“Advanced variable response or AVR delivers functionality and utility one level beyond traditional geo-fencing alarms or alerts. It allows the asset manager or geo-fence designer to set a conditional response for what happens or does not happen when an aircraft, vehicle, or vessel is in, or out of a geo-fenced area”, explains John Peterson, Blue Sky Network’s Vice President of Business Development. “For example, position reporting frequencies could be turned off when an asset is at its home base, resume normal reporting after leaving the base, and increase reporting frequency when entering regions considered more dangerous. AVR gives asset managers more control, ultimately making fleet management easier, safer, and less expensive.”
In addition to AVR, the HawkEye 7200 offers 3 significant advantages over traditional SATCOM asset tracking devices: An all-in-one design including internal long-lasting lithium ion battery and dual Iridium and GNSS antenna; true concurrent multi-national GNSS for faster, more accurate positioning; and Bluetooth connectivity using Blue Sky Network’s custom APP for iPhone and iPad, facilitating easy messaging and custom form transmission from Apple devices. The HawkEye 7200 portable SATCOM solution works directly with Blue Sky Network’s industry leading cloud-based web portal, SkyRouter – a secure online website that provides tracking and management of globally dispersed assets.
