Satellite communications provider Blue Sky Network now is offering the portable HawkeyeLink Bluetooth device it says enables hands-free Iridium phone calls and two-way messaging on users’ smartphones in an aircraft or helicopter.

After a user downloads the custom BSN app, HawkeyeLink uses Bluetooth technology to connect to an Android smartphone. Crew and passengers as far as 30 meters away can now use their phones over the Iridium Network for portable, hands-free communication anywhere in the air.

HawkeyeLink’s full capabilities are available when used with the Blue Sky Network’s D1000A/C modems. It can send email messages through the Iridium network to Blue Sky Network’s SkyRouter portal or any email address. Users of Blue Sky Network D1000 series can connect with HawkeyeLink via Blue Sky Network’s bulkhead adapter  installed into the control panel.
