Last year we simulated an Iridium NEXT launch, this year we are taking you on a new adventure! Have you ever found yourself in a situation without reliable communications? How do you stay connected in the most remote locations on the planet? Challenge yourself in our unique “Iridium NEXT Experience” –a virtual reality adventure hosted at SATELLITE 2017 that places you in the middle of critical situations where reliable, trusted communications are essential.

At Iridium, we understand the importance of reliable connectivity, and know that for some using fixed satellite systems connectivity may be compromised by infrastructure, nature or topology. Iridium’s mobile satellite system which operates in Low-Earth Orbit architecture allows for reliable, on-the-move communications, no matter the challenges faced on ground. Iridium CertusSM will enhance our existing capabilities of pole-to-pole satellite communications through the powerful high-speeds and robust network of Iridium NEXT. Learn what it takes to provide reliable communications in the most critical situations anyone could face in today’s connected world. Visit booth # 1809 to learn more about how to stay in touch when it matters most.
