HySky Overview - Business Model
The world is vast and only one innovative wireless data
communications technology can deliver over 90% global
coverage, that is also scalable and reliable, while maintaining
an economical business proposition that delivers and
captures value for all parties.
M2M and SCADA focus: By combining proven ex-military
wireless networking and frequency management, with an
established worldwide HF radio system, the resulting highly
dependable economical coverage permits a client to locate
and communicate with remote and mobile, tethered and
untethered, assets worldwide i.e., farm irrigation systems,
smart grid meters, electric cars, intermodal containers,
railcars and trailers, as well as remote energy assets such as
oil/gas wells, bulk oil tanks and propane storage tanks.

HySky’s Technology Evolution




Harris developed technology for HF shortwave radio,
leveraging ionosphere propagation; developed proprietary
software to optimize wireless communications over broadareas of coverage (thousands of miles)
Technology declassified and approved for civilian use;
awarded FCC licenses across multiple HF radio bands
Nationwide network inaugurated to track mobile assets for
the transportation industry - victim of 2001 financial crisis
Private investors acquire assets; form HySky Technologies Inc.
and re-focused on SCADA/M2M applications

◦ On July 10, 1997, the FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau ("the Bureau")
and the Office of Engineering and Technology granted a request for waiver of the
Commission's Rules and concurrently the Bureau conditionally granted a fiveyear authorization to HySky’s predecessor and granted the right to construct and
operate, on a secondary basis, a nationwide, commercial, two-way short-data
messaging system in the high frequency ("HF") range of the electromagnetic
spectrum, subject to certain technical and operational limitations.
◦ On July 20, 2002, the license was updated and reissued with all military
restrictions lifted.

The System knows what frequencies are propagating
A Propagation Evaluation Network of sounders & sophisticated algorithms evaluates the network
and optimizes data traffic for 99.99% throughput.
HySky’s sophisticated waveform & modem technology overcomes multi-path effects
HySky adapts a military HF waveform and proprietary modem technology to ensure the highest
level of service
HySky uses time & frequency diversity to ensure message delivery
If a message is not received on the 1st try, the message is repeated at a different frequency to
guarantee delivery; the system then generates a message acknowledgment.

2G Cellular problems
forthcoming “2G Sunset,”



This year (2013) the transition to 3G will no longer
be a matter of choice. That’s because carriers are
already migrating their product lines to 3G.
A major cellular carrier in the U.S. recently stopped
certifying 2G-only products of any kind and
remaining carriers are sure to follow suit.
Before 2015 over 5 million 2G cell mods (resulting in
5 million truck-rolls) used in the security industry
will be changed due to obsolesce of the technology
ADT will change over 1 million
Vivint will change over 700,000

2G Cellular problems
forthcoming “2G Sunset,”
In the U.S., the lower frequency band
(2G) is at 850 MHz and the higher band
is at 1900 MHz. (3G). Most cellular
devices installed inside homes and
businesses rely on the deep penetrating
850 MHz band to connect to neighboring
cell towers.
After December 31, 2016, when the
2G Sunset is complete, it will be just
like the Analog Sunset. Anything
using 2G will stop working
overnight. Only 3G/4G will work
from that day forward
