What is Skyhawk?

Skyhawk is a unique, portable, easy-to-deploy IoT platform that can be used as a long-term security and activity monitoring solution for physical assets located in areas with no access to the Internet or electricity. It is turnkey in that it consists of hardware, software and advanced cellular-based IoT connectivity capabilities tightly integrated in a single system. Skyhawk devices are currently deployable in all populated regions of the United States.

Skyhawk was developed by PICA Product Development (PPD), part of the PICA Group of companies with more than a 30-year history of helping bring a variety of innovative products to market. PPD supplies critical design and manufacturing services for the development of a wide variety of products including bar code readers, smart phones, retail store messaging systems and medical hardware including respirators and infusion pumps. Our experience and production capabilities make it possible to exceed production volumes of 1 million pieces per week.

Many of the electro-mechanical devices we have helped bring to market are common in everyday life. Much of our history includes supplying components for products with radio frequency (RF) technology. Designing and building electronic components and full stack software applications is our business. PPD is uniquely positioned to cost effectively produce IoT remote monitoring solutions using our global sourcing and manufacturing capabilities. These include state of the art manufacturing resources in Derry, New Hampshire and Selengor, Malaysia.

We have tightly integrated vertical capabilities that make it possible for us to design and deliver IoT products very quickly, cost effectively and in the highest volumes. In recent years, a dedicated and highly experienced cross functional team successfully developed the Skyhawk IoT platform to provide a turnkey IoT solution for monitoring personal property and devices without Internet or electricity.
