Iridium and AnsuR have formally partnered to optimize live video over Iridium Certus®. Our teams first demonstrated this capability during Operation Arctic Lynx (OAL), an internationally coordinated field demonstration of Iridium and Iridium Connected® technology in the polar regions. AnsuR software enabled the provision of rapid situational awareness and mission-critical photos and video delivery over the Iridium network.
Driving through heavy fog and rainfall above the Arctic circle in Utqiagvik, Alaska, the team transmitted live on-the-move 1080 HD video footage over the Iridium network in real-time utilizing AnsuR’s ASMIRA application. The video was filmed using a commercial-off-the-shelf camera attached to the vehicle, sent over an Iridium Certus Connected® Thales MissionLINK™ 700 terminal and then viewed by team members over multiple IP-connected networks around the world.
