ABOUT IRIDIUM


The Iridium Satellite System is the only provider of truly global, truly mobile satellite voice and data solutions with complete coverage of the Earth (including oceans, airways and Polar Regions). Through a constellation of 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO) satellites operated by Boeing, Iridium delivers essential communications services to and from remote areas where terrestrial communications are not available. The service is ideally suited for industrial applications such as heavy construction, defense/military, emergency services, maritime, mining, forestry, oil and gas and aviation.

Only Iridium's global service allows field personnel to send and receive voice, messaging and data regardless of location. Individual-to-office, office-to-individual, individual-to-individual. Compact, rugged, and flexible, Iridium equipment is easy to carry, easy to use, and yet affordable.
