Arco Rockair Tracking

Report your position and provide communication options from anywhere on Earth with a view of the sky

RockAIR is a dual-mode Iridium/ cellular tracking and messaging device. Primarily designed for carry-on use in light-aircraft and dashboard mounting in vehicles; it can transmit its position from anywhere on Earth.

FEATURES

  • Autonomous GPS Tracking
  • Small form factor, with multiple mounting options
  • Can be covertly mounted/positioned
  • Backup internal battery, for up to 2 weeks use
  • Over-the-air reconfiguration of key parameters
  • Truly Global Operation, using the Iridium satellite network
  • Least cost routing option using GSM where possible
  • Bluetooth LE for advanced messaging
  • External Switch Inputs to easy alerting from external sensors
  • RS-232 serial input for M2M/IoT usage

HOW DOES THE ROCKAIR WORK?

The RockAIR is a truly global tracking and messaging device designed for use on the dashboard of light-aircraft, rotorcraft and land-based vehicles. It has built-in GSM, which allows it to use terrestrial mobile phone networks when possible, automatically switching to the global Iridium satellite network when GSM is not available.

It has quick access to alert features using the front panel, along with a comprehensive set of tracking, messaging and M2M/IoT features. The unit comes with a quick release mount to enable carry-on installation in seconds.

The tracker will wake up on a regular basis, obtain its position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit the position back to the ARCO Secure Portal using either GSM or the Iridium satellite network. The RockAIR also allows SMS and email to be sent using a paired Bluetooth device and the RockCONNECT app. This allows for full two-way communication wherever you are, even when out of mobile network range.

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.

KEY FUNCTIONALITY

Autonomous Tracking

RockAIR can automatically transmit a GPS position to the ARCO Secure Portal as often as every minute, or as slowly as once every 2 hours.. The unit also allows tracking profiles to be set up to allow faster rates if the alert button has been pressed.

Power Requirements

RockAIR takes its power from 9-30v DC supply. It also has a built-in battery backup unit which will allow it to operate for up to 2 weeks without external power (depending on transmission rate and settings).

Messaging

The RockAIR is able to send and receive short emails and text messages to the ARCO Secure Portal and key contacts. Regardless of your location, you can stay in touch.

Alerting

Both the red alert button and the ‘watch me’ feature are accessible via the keypad. Watch me informs ARCO that you would like to be more actively monitored for a period of time, and gives additional piece of mind for pilots/drivers.

Fleet Management

If you have multiple RockAIR devices you can manage them all from ARCO Secure Website.
