In a Huffington Post column, Iridium CEO Matt Desch adds a unique perspective to the discussion of space debris and shares the steps the company is taking as a satellite provider to ensure the safety of all orbiting objects.
Iridium has some amazing partners that repeatedly break through the mold to create – and do – things no one ever thought possible. Our partner, SpaceX, is the perfect example of this.
SpaceX made history when it launched the Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Dragon spacecraft into orbit with plans to deliver cargo to the International Space Station (ISS).
This week, we announced Iridium’s quarterly earnings results and I wanted to take the opportunity to update the community and thank our partners for their support.
Recently, Gen. John H. Campbell, Iridium’s executive vice president, government programs, provided an exclusive Q & A to OnOrbitWatch.com on the role that hosted payloads on Iridium NEXT satellites could play in providing space situational awareness capabilities.
