Feb. 4,  2008, La Jolla, CA – Blue Sky Network, the global logistics solution provider for two-way
linking and managing transportation assets via satellite, today
announced that the number of customers and subscriber units grew by
more than 60% in 2007. This strong growth was fueled by sales to large
helicopter and aircraft fleets, three of which are considered the
biggest sales of the industry for 2007.

Last year's customer
wins strengthened Blue Sky Network's position in the aviation market.
Rotorcraft Leasing, British Ministry of Defense and VIH Helicopters all
signed on to deploy Blue Sky Network D1000C and ACH1000 kits for
aircraft tracking and in-flight communication, which are seamlessly
integrated with SkyRouter, Blue Sky Network's unique, interactive and
secure online asset tracking Web portal.

In addition to
success within the aviation sector, Blue Sky Network continues to
experience significant growth in marine and land arenas. As the Mobile
Satellite Service (MSS) market, led by Iridium Satellite, experiences
explosive growth, Blue Sky Network has seen corresponding levels of
market traction.

"Our notable successes of 2007 are proof
points for the effectiveness of our products to rise to the challenges
of a competitive and demanding industry," said Jon Gilbert, president
and CEO of Blue Sky Network. "Moving forward, we are expecting to
continue building upon strength in aviation and new business in marine
and land mobile applications."
