TracPlus and v2track Introduce New v2track Voice


TracPlus and v2track


recently announced the addition of v2track


voice to TracPlus’ device range, adding an affordable and feature-rich satellite and cellular tracking, satellite voice and messaging solution to the TracPlus portfolio.


The v2track and TracPlus partnership was an obvious connection as both companies share the same ethos of a customer-first approach. With a shared vision to make technology accessible to the wider market, engineers at v2track have created a powerful yet affordable solution to ensure customers are both seen and heard when operating in remote or high-risk areas.


v2track voice builds upon v2track, a reliable dual-mode and high-rate tracking unit that has proven itself across multiple markets across the globe. The concept of adding voice to the product came as a direct request from their customers, looking for an option that was affordable for general operators looking to stay connected.


“We wanted to meet the demands of our customers who were looking for high-end tracking and voice functionality, without the burden of cost,“ says Kylan Diprose, v2track’s co-founder.


“Building on the great success our tracking and messaging system has had in the market, adding voice functionality meets the requirements for some market segments we didn’t


traditionally operate in, such as EMS and first responders. It is great to now open up our offering to them with reliability and accessibility being some key priorities of our business approach,” continued Diprose.


Utilizing Iridium voice and with Push-To-Talk capability currently under development, phone calls are dialed by an LCD screen or smart device connected via Bluetooth technology. Voice communication is integrated directly into the pilots’ headsets via the aircraft audio panel.


V2track voice can send and receive text messages and send short emails when required through a user-friendly and intuitive app. V2track voice also fosters a paperless cockpit environment through the transmission of critical flight information including electronic flight bag, trip manifest, checklist completion, and flight plan – offering a complete solution for the modern-day operator.


TracPlus has integrated the v2track product line into its real- time tracking and communication platform, providing customers with complete visibility of all personnel and resources within one common operating platform. This solidifies TracPlus as the gold standard for real-time tracking and communications.


“At TracPlus, we are building an open hardware ecosystem. The integration of v2track voice adds to the long list of tracking devices that our platform supports. We believe in allowing our customers to use the best tools they need on the job while benefiting from the power of our collaborative platform,” says TracPlus CEO Trevor McIntyre.

Final FAA Certification for Composite Main Rotor Blades


Earlier this year, Erickson announced FAA approval of the S-64E model. This recent announcement finalizes the certification of the S-64F and CH-54B, solidifying FAA certification for the entire fleet of S-64 Air Crane®


E & F models, as well as


the CH-54 Skycrane A & B models. The advanced design of the blades provides a significant performance advantage, especially at hot and high conditions.


This Certification brings considerable advantages, such as:


• •





Performance gains Fuel savings


• Reduced vibration, meaning reduced wear and fatigue on the entire aircraft


Blade interchangeability with the E/A models

“It was quite difficult, but extremely satisfying to see this project through to completion. There is a lot of blood sweat and tears in those blades,” reflected Billy Johnson, chief engineer at Erickson Incorporated.
