Iridium supports global militaries through robust and dependable communication technology, all while keeping it compact and portable for use in quickly changing scenarios. Without the need for heavy-duty equipment or advanced installation, Iridium and Iridium Connected® devices provide an easy and lightweight solution for both mounted and dismounted troops on the battlefield. Whether soldiers need to coordinate with the Command & Control Center (C2), record surveillance on an enemy platoon, or enact post and pull operatives, Iridium’s transportable devices enable on-the-move communication and monitoring, all with less to carry.
Iridium Certus® terminals are purpose-built to last. The solid-state antennas are low-profile and have no moving parts, providing durability in harsh conditions. Fly-away kits in both backpacks and pelican cases improve battlefield connectivity and extend the range of beyond-line-of-sight communications.
Even in the world’s most remote locations, militaries can stay connected at all times. With Iridium’s pole-to-pole network coverage, troops stay within reach wherever their battles or missions take them. This enables soldiers to serve on their missions with greater confidence, knowing that they can stay connected even off the grid.
The Iridium network routes traffic from satellite to satellite, eliminating the need for local ground-based communications infrastructure that can be compromised in a hostile environment. With 66 satellites constantly moving overhead, the Iridium network provides high availability for voice and data connectivity, even on the move.
Iridium and Iridium Connected devices are designed to operate in harsh environments. With enhanced noise cancellation technology, soldiers that are immersed in loud environments, such as travelling in a loud military-graded vehicle or fighting on a battlefield, can relay and transmit voice communication with optimal clarity.
