Iridium is the preferred choice of communications for humanitarian and peacekeeping operations due to the robustness and flexibility of our solutions. Inter-agency coordination and on-the-ground logistics require reliable voice and data services across response teams, the ability to monitor and send reports, and real-time tracking for the safety and security of the team. Iridium® provides humanitarian aid workers with the connectivity needed to maintain critical connections while helping to build or restore infrastructure, especially in developing areas.

Iridium enables NGOs and aid workers to remain connected to co-workers, operation centers, and other agencies in remote areas to improve connectivity, safety, and reliability of service. In most countries, High-Frequency (HF) Radio is no longer a viable option for communications, and Iridium Push-to-Talk (PTT) delivers the highly reliable, long-range communications that are essential for humanitarian and security operations. Iridium and Iridium Connected® devices provide a range of equipment to meet the operational efficiency required by NGO personnel through intuitive, rugged hardware and solutions to securely connect your own personal device to a Security Operations Center (SOC).
