Blue Sky Network, a global provider of mobile asset management and fleet management solutions using GPS tracking, has announced the D411, which it describes as its simplest and most affordable satellite fleet tracking solution for vehicles. Designed for fleets operating in remote areas with unreliable cellular coverage, the Iridium-based D411 ensures reliable messaging and allows fleet managers to always know the exact location of their fleet, the company says.

Integrated with Blue Sky Network’s SkyRouter Web portal, vehicles using the D411 can be viewed quickly and in near-real time by fleet managers, according to the company; additionally, companies with other air, land or sea assets being monitored via SkyRouter can view all their assets on the same online screen. For crews in potentially hostile areas, covert and quick installation of the D411 adds to driver safety, Blue Sky Network says; operators also can send panic alerts via optional wired and wireless hardware should any unusual activity occur.

“The D411 marks a significant step forward for communication and safety of remote projects by finally offering fleet managers a cost-effective means for global fleet management,” says Jon Gilbert, president, founder and chief executive officer of La Jolla, Calif.-based Blue Sky Network. “We are extremely pleased that the D411 aligns with our continued goal of providing fleet tracking and management to all transportation assets.”

Fleet managers are able to constantly monitor driver routes and locations through automatic position reports at user-defined intervals, the company says. The D411 also is designed to provide discrete inputs for monitoring vehicle activities such as lights on, vehicle on/off or other telematic data; additionally, integrated Bluetooth will make two-way messaging possible via Bluetooth-equipped smartphones or PDAs with the future release of BSN’s smartphone messaging application.
