Southwest Airlines now using OnAsset asset tracking devices

OnAsset Intelligence (Irving, Texas, U.S.A.), a provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless asset tracking, recently announced that Southwest Airlines Co. (Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.) is now accepting cargo shipments containing its tracking devices.

OnAsset’s SENTRY 400 FlightSafe device can provide location, environmental sensing and monitoring of temperature-sensitive and high value cargo, according to the company.

With more than 3,400 flights each day, Southwest Airlines Cargo delivers high-value cargo including temperature sensitive items such as medical and pharmaceutical products, according to OnAsset.

The SENTRY 400 is a personal electronic device (PED) that includes multiple sensors such as temperature, humidity, pressure, shock, location, and vibration, according to the company. It also includes FlightSafe, which enables the device to use multiple modes of sensing and proprietary logic to operate with the necessary intelligence to automatically suppress its wireless radios to an “off” mode, ensuring safe and FAA compliant operation during flight, says OnAsset.

SENTRY has completed evaluations by Southwest’s Maintenance, Flight Operations, Safety and Security, Ground Operations, and Engineering Teams. It has also satisfied testing requirements by an independent laboratory and per the FAA, satisfies all current regulatory requirements, according to OnAsset.
