Bringing Iridium Certus to life was an enormous project for the Iridium team; one that touched nearly all employees and contractors! Last week, we shared the first of a three-part video series taking you behind the scenes in the making of Iridium Certus. This week, some of the key people involved in the development of this groundbreaking service discuss the hardware and supporting systems that make Iridium Certus work.
Earlier this month, we announced the commercial service introduction of Iridium Certus, the world’s first truly global broadband service enabled by the $3 billion Iridium® NEXT satellite replacement program. Now commercially available, Iridium Certus is a unique platform designed for the development of specialty applications and is the world’s only truly global broadband service, offering on-the-move internet and high-quality voice access. The service enables mobile office functionality for deployed teams and two-way remote communication for assets, autonomous vehicles, trains, aircraft and ships at sea.
