Blue Sky Network Releases State-of-the-Art Vehicle Tracking and Management System


Sharing is Caring

Blue Sky Network, an Iridium Satellite Communications partner, today announces the release of the HawkEye 5500 (HE5500), dual-mode, real-time tracking, and vehicle management solution. Certified by Iridium, the HawkEye 5500 offers full integration of on-board systems, support for both light and heavy-duty vehicles, two-way messaging, a remote emergency switch, collision detection, audible alerts, RFID and Bluetooth driver identification and customizable application integration. The HE5500 is the first vehicle tracking system to offer this comprehensive set of features.

The HE5500 utilizes 2G/3G/LTE and the Iridium satellite network in order to provide global always-on coverage with the highest resolution tracking and communication in the market. Capabilities include offloading diagnostics, user, and other on-board system data over AES- 256 encrypted communications to a fleet operations center or through a tailor-made Bluetooth connected application. Users can customize reporting rates based on movement or location and provide driver feedback when safety violations occur.

“The HE5500 replaces legacy systems for mission-critical operations including mining, defense, security, public safety, search and rescue, and executive transport in remote, austere environments,” said Nick Tucky, Vice President of Sales for Blue Sky Network. “The HE5500 represents a monumental step forward in Blue Sky Network’s commitment to providing future-proofed, advanced technology for vehicle fleets of all sizes. Its capabilities and advanced onboard sensors are unique features that allow forward-looking upgrade compatibility for years to come.”

All operations are tracked via Blue Sky Network’s portal, SkyRouter, which allows for effective high-security command and control of fleet’s anywhere on the planet.
