The RockAIR is a fully worldwide tracking and communications device for small aircraft, rotorcraft, and land-based vehicles. It features built-in GSM, allowing it to use terrestrial mobile phone networks when accessible while automatically switching to the global Iridium satellite network when GSM is unavailable.
It contains a front panel with rapid access to alarm functionalities, as well as a comprehensive set of tracking, messaging, and M2M/IoT features. The item comes with a quick-release mount that allows for rapid carry-on installation.
A coupled Bluetooth device (such as a smartphone) and the SkyRouter software can also be used to send short communications (such as SMS and short emails). This enables for full two-way communication no matter where you are, even if you are out of range of a mobile network.
GSM and Iridium work together to provide a cost-effective and genuinely global method of tracking and interacting with your assets, no matter where they are.
Autonomous Tracking: Transmit location data in real-time. The RockAIR transmits location data to SkyRouter as quickly as every 15 seconds, on external or battery power.
Geofencing: Advanced geofencing capabilities. Users can create asset boundaries and receive notifications when boundaries are breached.
Messaging: Truly global messaging. RockAIR’s intuitive email-based messaging interface allows two-way, worldwide communications via Android or iOS devices.
SkyRouter: Cloud-based, on-premise command and control. The SkyRouter portal lets you manage your entire fleet from one screen through ruggedized, standalone server.
‘Watch Me’ and Alerting: Rapid emergency comms. The Quick Position (QPOS) button immediately notifies command centers of an emergency. The ‘Watch Me’ feature requests command center monitoring for the RockAIR user.
Overlays: Built-in overlay (MGRS, weather maps) and custom form (flight plans, incident reports) capabilities. Blue Sky Network solutions offer full interoperability for data push and pull.
