Blue Sky Network introduced the HawkEye 5300, a dual-mode tracking device leveraging both GSM and Iridium satellite capabilities.

The HawkEye 5300 offers two-way real-time communication which automatically and seamlessly switches between Iridium and quad-band GSM networks. This provides land fleet operators with lower monthly tracking costs while delivering 100 percent global visibility.

The HawkEye 5300 provides uninterrupted tracking even in the most remote regions, thereby ensuring safety for long distance trucking, dangerous remote routes and high security operations, such as high value or hazardous cargo. It also offers instant notification of vehicle operation after-hours or in unsafe zones, and remote Internet-based fleet monitoring. Blue Sky Network's relationship with GSM service providers ensures cost-effective fleet tracking and communications anywhere GSM services are available, according to the company.

The HawkEye 5300 is part of Blue Sky Network's new series of next generation real-time vehicle tracking and monitoring solutions that are designed to provide more than just GPS location. All HawkEye series devices have an optional LCD touch-screen display, which provides complete two-way text communication with the device anywhere in the world.

"GSM is very cost effective, but it is often unavailable in remote locations where the danger is highest and the need greatest," said Jon Gilbert, CEO and founder of Blue Sky Network. "The HawkEye 5300 provides fleet operators with the best of both worlds by economically delivering uninterrupted tracking no matter how remote the area. Users can monitor and communicate with their fleets at all times to ensure complete safety and accountability."
