The RockAIR is a portable glare-shield mounted satellite/cellular tracking and messaging device with Bluetooth support for Apple iPad and iPhone. It has built-in GSM, which allows it to use the terrestrial mobile phone networks, and then automatically switching to the global Iridium satellite network when GSM is not available. It is entirely self-contained and attaches securely and easily to the glare-shield.
The combination of GSM and Iridium provides a cost effective, and truly global, method of tracking and communicating with your assets wherever they may be. The RockAIR can also transmit at different rates when in cellular coverage versus satellite-only (e.g. faster in cellular areas, more slowly when transmitting over iridium) - this is controlled via the cellular profile.
The RockAIR has the capabilities for multiple external switch inputs for easy reporting from external sensors allowing the automatic and accurate capture and transmission of takeoffs, landings, engine start-ups, engine shutdown, in addition to user-defined events from other sensors.
A host of internal sensors allows the RockAIR to transmit flight operating conditions such as operating temperature or sudden impact events. In addition, GPS, internal and external sensor information is logged onto a removable SD card every second, allowing the RockAIR to operate as a flight recorder for post flight or post incident analysis.
