      Blue Sky Network announced the release of SkyRouter 3, version 2.6.0, which will become immediately available to all customers. This upgrade includes a targeted set of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) aeronautical chart basemaps and real-time weather data now accessible on the SkyRouter 3 platform.

      According to Kambiz Aghili, Blue Sky Network’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), this release marks an increase in the company’s integrated map overlay offerings and an integration of its overlay system, which makes flight planning easier, safer and more cost efficient. With the new aviation overlays, SkyRouter 4 users can view current weather conditions at airports around the globe.

      “The new 2.6.0 feature release follows the two previous fully supported upgrades released earlier this year as part of the ongoing advancement of the SkyRouter 3 platform ahead of the industry,” said Blue Sky Network President Gregoire Demory. “Version 2.4.0, introduced in early April, brought Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) and Iridium support for the HawkEye 6200 marine tracker, which is Blue Sky Network’s first IP67 waterproof tracking systems for vessels. Version 2.5.0, introduced in late April, brought security enhancement … for advanced authentication options.”

      Blue Sky Network’s interactive web portal, SkyRouter, offers tracking, reporting, communication and asset management functionality for aviation, maritime and land/mobile customers.
