The Hong Kong air carrier has signed off on the cellular-based M2M device, which provides real-time, global visibility of cargos, enabling remote monitoring of GPS and sensor data from origin to destination.

IRVING, TX /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- OnAsset Intelligence Inc., the market leader in machine-to-machine (M2M) airborne asset tracking solutions, announced that the Sentry FlightSafe cellular monitoring and tracking device is approved by Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd., the home carrier of Hong Kong. The tracking device provides real-time, global visibility of GPS location and sensor condition data of precious cargo from origin to destination and from airport to airport.

"Approval by Cathay Pacific is a major milestone for OnAsset customers who monitor cargo across the globe," says Adam Crossno, President and CEO of OnAsset. "We are very excited that the FlightSafe network now extends to the Asia region."

Shippers, forwarders, and couriers of valuable items use Sentry FlightSafe to track location and manage environmental conditions during air and ground transportation. With its real-time capabilities at the airport and on the road, supply chain personnel receive important data at speeds so fast that rapid response in critical situations becomes easy to deploy and stress-free.

"We are pleased to collaborate with OnAsset on the approval of the Sentry FlightSafe cellular, which can be carried on our Pharma LIFT and Expert LIFT products. This combined monitoring and tracking device will deliver significant benefits to our customers in terms of monitoring the condition of onboard shipment. We always strive to provide the best cargo solution to our customers, and to assure sensitive shipment will be handled within the timeframe that is required," says Mandy Ng, Manager, Cargo Sales and Marketing, Cathay Pacific Airways.

Sentry FlightSafe is a highly advanced cellular tracking device that includes multiple sensors, such as temperature, humidity, pressure, shock, location, and vibration, with an additional feature, FlightSafe. This feature enables the device to use multiple modes of sensing and proprietary logic to automatically turn off its wireless transmitting radios to ensure safe and FAA-compliant operation throughout the duration of flight. The Sentry FlightSafe device is the only cellular-based, GPS sensing device with a patented feature for automatic radio-off mode that requires no human intervention to operate it.
