Iridium Makes Maritime History

On May 21, 2018, the International Maritime Organization’s Maritime Safety Committee officially recognized Iridium to provide GMDSS services. By 2020, Iridium expects to provide mariners with a GMDSS solution that will offer secure, reliable, and truly global voice and data GMDSS communications in a single, small-form-factor maritime mobile terminal – at a fraction of the price of competing solutions.

Iridium NEXT

On July 25, 2018, Iridium successfully launched 10 more Iridium NEXT satellites into orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Shortly after deployment, Iridium confirmed successful communication with all 10 new satellites, formally bringing the total number of Iridium NEXT satellites in orbit to 65. This leaves just one more launch to complete this ambitious launch program.
