More and more, Iridium is providing explorers and researchers from all corners of the globe with the vital communications link they need to make their expeditions possible.
As 2011 draws to a close, here’s one more reason for us to end the year on a high note: Iridium has just been ranked as one of the 200 largest companies in the Washington D.C. area by the Washington Post!
When we say furthest reaching, we really mean it! Last year, using an Iridium satellite phone, renowned arctic explorer Eric Larsen became the first person to Tweet from the North Pole.
Recently, Iridium CEO Matt Desch spoke with Chief Executive Magazine about how, over the last decade, the company has transformed itself into the world’s only mobile voice and data satellite communications network that spans the entire globe and now provides service to over a half a million subscribers worldwide.
Please join us in welcoming Admiral (Ret.) Eric T. Olson to Iridium’s Board of Directors. He brings nearly forty years of broad leadership, management and military operations experience to Iridium.
The GEOS emergency response service is now available to Iridium Extreme™ satellite phone customers at no additional cost. The GEOS service is integrated into the dedicated, two-way emergency SOS button on the Iridium Extreme.
