GPS tracking device approved by Amerijet


Amerijet has approved Starcom Systems Kylos Air GPS tracking device for air cargo use aboard on its freighter aircraft.

The carrier says it made the move after identifying the need for the latest in tracking technology to better serve its shipping clientele.

Starcom Systems Americas designs and manufactures a variety of GPS-based tracking devices that are battery operated or direct wire applications for vehicles.

Amerijet senior vice president of business development, Pamela Rollins says: “Being able to know exactly where cargo is, and being able to track or monitor it on your smartphone, desktop or via your own tracking platform is critical to the next generation of services we intend to provide.”

Rollins adds: “Starcom Systems latest development with the Kylos Air allows for close monitoring of high value air cargo, temperature sensitive products and equipment. The units go into ‘Airplane Mode’ while in the air, but communicate the moment they exit the aircraft, helping minimise the ramp time of sensitive cargo.”

Starcom Systems chief operating officer, Doron Kedem says: “Amerijet’s approval sets the stage for our Americas subsidiary to participate in industries such as pharmaceutical, high value and electronics, which require constant monitoring.”
