Satellite-Based Aircraft Tracking

Ensuring the health, safety, and security of your company assets and personnel is critical to any
aviation-based organisation’s success. Only with truly global tracking is your company able to
safeguard assets, protect aviators and passengers, and manage logistics.

In remote regions where terrestrial communications are limited, we provide global satellite
coverage allowing you track the location of your airplanes, helicopters, remote workers, or
other assets in real-time.

Plane Tracking and Monitoring made Simple

While an aircraft may be kitted out with phones and other communication devices, flight routes are often out of GSM range so cannot guarantee signal. Reliable transmission of location on a regular basis is essential though, should the worst happen.

In an emergency situation, pilots need a quick and simple system to fire out an SOS – from messaging to accurate position information.

Presenting the RockAIR

Designed specifically for Aircraft Tracking, our dashboard-mounted RockAIR device delivers truly global tracking and two-way communications. Supporting hybrid satellite and cellular connectivity, switching seamlessly between networks. This combination of GSM and Iridium provides a cost effective, and truly global, method of tracking and communicating with your aircraft, wherever they may be.

Featuring complex geofencing capabilities working on many vertices; the device will monitor its location relative to these geofences, and can have different behaviour attributed to each fence. For example, a specific transmission frequency when inside each fence.
