Blue Sky Network D1000A Flight Tracking Transceiver
The Blue Sky Network D1000A Iridium Satellite Flight Tracking & 2-Way Messaging Transceiver provides unprecedented satellite communications to and from aircraft globally. The D1000A offers GPS and event reporting, an integrated panic button and email. It can connect to the ACH1000 control head, adding a voice connection, short code messaging and a display to the installation. The D1000A is designed for fixed or portable installation.
The D1000A modem unit, designed for fixed installation with a ? ATI control head mounted in the cockpit panel - or complete portability - with the control head installed inside the main transceiver unit - integrates an Iridium L-Band Transceiver for data transfer and a built-in GPS sensor for position reporting.
When permanently installed, the modem unit is placed remotely in an avionics bay, while the corresponding control unit can be installed directly into the cockpit control panel of the aircraft. When portable, the two units fit together and weigh about six pounds. The D1000A optionally connects to the ACH1000 control head, adding voice connection to the installation.
With complete remote management of the unit settings, the D1000A can be managed anywhere in the world by the click of a button. Users can change position reporting intervals or telemetry settings easily and comfortably from their SkyRouter user account.
D1000A vs. D1000C
Beyond the basic fleet tracking feature set of position reporting, telemetry, and optional use of the ACH1000 control head, the D1000A also adds a built-in or remotely mounted control head. This control head offers an ON/OFF switch, LED indicators for signal and message waiting, and a mayday alert button. The D1000C does not include this control head. The D1000A even offers the ability to connect EFBs, laptops or PDAs for easy two-way messaging via a web-based interface. It is a simple email application that can be used anywhere.
