Overview

The Flightcell DZMx is an all-in-one purpose-built product for the transportation industry and with an emphasis on aviation. It transmits and receives voice and data via the global Iridium network and/or a cellular network and has in-built GPS tracking functionality.

Single or dual Iridium transceivers can be fitted, providing global voice and data and uninterrupted GPS tracking to third party tracking services. Third-party control systems interface with DZMx to provide automated transmission and reporting for firefighting, agriculture, air medical and search and rescue operations.
