Multiband Antennas 2JZ0133BC & Blue Sky Network’s New Vehicle Management System

Iridium Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: IRDM) has said their partner, Blue Sky Network, has introduced the HawkEye 5500 (HE5500) vehicle management solution that features the first-of-its-kind, full integration of on-board vehicle systems — the device uses 2G/3G/LTE and the Iridium satellite network in order to provide global coverage, with high resolution tracking and communications.

As the first vehicle tracking system to offer such a comprehensive set of features, the HE5500 supports both light and heavy-duty vehicles, two-way messaging, a remote emergency switch, audible alerts, and customizable application integration. These capabilities facilitate mission-critical operations for vehicle fleets of all sizes including those supporting mining operations, defense, security, public safety, search and rescue, and executive transport in remote environments.

Using the all new Multiband Antennas 2JZ0133BC Iridium/GPS antenna, the HE5500 can generate automatic monitoring and alerting on driver safety, proactive monitoring of vehicle health, and analytics about usage, performance, and behavior. This allows vehicle fleets to gain valuable insights while improving safety, reducing operating costs, and streamlining compliance.
