Blue Sky Network + REDjet... Sky Tracking (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Satellite tracking, fleet management, and automated flight following solutions company Blue Sky Network has announced....

....hat its tracking and messaging hardware, software, and service will be used by the Caribbean's newest low fare airline, REDjet. REDjet's aircraft [MD-82s] currently fly to Barbados, Trinidad, and Guyana, and will service Jamaica and Antigua starting this November (with new routes being added regularly). It will use Blue Sky Network's Iridium-based solutions to track every flight over the Caribbean Sea, as well as to maintain constant contact with pilots and operators. The solution being used across REDjet's fleet is Blue Sky Network's FAA-approved D1000C tracking unit with the ACH1000 (the latter enables voice and text messages to be sent via the Iridium network). Tracking data will be viewed on SkyRouter, Blue Sky Network's pioneering, web-based tracking portal.
