In-flight communication is of course highly regulated. Therefore devices need to fulfill various requirements to conform to air safety regulations. On top of that, each airline has its own approval process a tracking device needs to go through, before it’s being allowed onboard. Of course we make sure our products meet all the applicable industry standards. Our Versa 1 tracker is compliant with EASA, FAA and IATA regulations for air transport and approved by the following airlines:
Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, Air New Zealand, AirBridgeCargo, ANA Cargo, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, CargoLux, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, Emirates SkyCargo,Korean Air Cargo, LATAM, Lufthansa, Maskargo ,Nippon Cargo Airlines, Qatar Airways, Scoot, Singapore Airlines, Swiss WorldCargo, TAP Air Cargo and Turkish Cargo.
We expect more approvals to come in shortly, as we’re in the review process with quite some airlines at the moment.
Unique patented flight mode
One of the difficulties with tracking cargo using an active tracking device, is that it needs to be switched off during the flight. Just like passengers need to switch off their mobile devices, or put them in flight mode when they travel by air.
We developed, and patented, an automatic flight mode for our tracker, based on verified real-time airplane data. This means that the Versa tracker goes into flight mode as soon as the doors of the aircraft close. However, should this fail, then the accelerometer and pressure sensor will force the device to go into flight mode during take off. The device wakes up automatically when the plane arrives at the airport.
