Erickson Air-Crane has chosen Blue Sky Network’s SkyRouter and D1000 Series for S-64s used in aerial firefighting operations. SkyRouter is a satellite tracking system that will pair with the D1000 automated flight following (AFF) compliant tracking hardware to provide Erickson with near real-time data, enhanced situational awareness and improved efficiency with fire retardant. The D1000 Series contains an RS232 port that allows sensors to collect information on assets such as the amount of fire retardant dropped on fires.
