Blue Sky Network, an Iridium Satellite Communications partner, has introduced the HawkEye 5500 (HE5500), a dual-mode, real-time tracking and vehicle management solution. It 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 utilizes 2G/3G/LTE and the Iridium satellite network in order to provide global always-on coverage. 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.
All operations are tracked via Blue Sky Network’s portal, SkyRouter, which allows for effective high-security command and control of fleets anywhere on the planet.
