Feb. 27, 2008, Ottawa Nelson, New Zealand – Guardian Mobility Corporation and Flightcell International Ltd. have signed a distribution agreement whereby Guardian will have rights to resell the complete line of Flightcell avionics products, including the versatile Flightcell DZM satellite tracking system, throughout North America. 

Flightcell DZM is the world’s most advanced all-in-one communications and tracking hub for commercial and military aviation.  DZM is a panel-mount module with simple user interface that connects to any satellite or cellular phone thereby providing integrated voice communications to the cockpit and to passengers.  The integrated GPS tracking system transmits aircraft positions based on a number of defined settings including time, course change, speed threshold as well as hot-key activation from the cabin in distress situations.

“Many of our customers are requesting more advanced tracking and communication systems for selected aircraft” declared Ian Stewart, head of Guardian’s Aviation Product group.  “We feel that including the DZM product with our current lineup of flight tracking solutions will give us added firepower to expand into the business and military aviation markets”. Guardian will be displaying their complete product line-up this month at Heli-Expo 2008 in Houston, TX, Booth #1343.

The Flightcell DZM product will fit seamlessly into Guardian’s existing message management and web mapping services.  It is a premium product; however by making use of existing portable satellite or cellular phones, it is significantly more versatile and lower in cost compared to other installed voice and/or data systems.  The product ships fully compatible with the Iridium 9505/9505A satellite phones supporting voice, SMS and email communications.


According to Hamish Neill, Sales and Marketing Director at Flightcell International, “We look upon Guardian Mobility with their focus on web mapping and reporting services to be a key partner in the flight tracking market in North America but world-wide.  With their on-going sales to military customers, we expect that our ruggedized Military product range will receive added exposure into this highly demanding segment.”
