Iridium works when other solutions fail, offering reliable and weather-resilient connections through small, lightweight products designed to withstand the uncertain conditions of the wild. Utilizing Iridium’s global network, wildlife workers – from scientists and researchers to environmentalists and field workers – have reliable voice and data solutions to push their studies further. Iridium and our partners collaborate with conservation organizations, research groups, and individuals to develop ground-breaking solutions for monitoring and protecting global biodiversity. Our power-efficient solutions further enable researchers and scientists to better understand, track, and conserve the world’s wildlife, while remaining safe and connected themselves.
Iridium is the only satellite network that operates everywhere in the world, even vast, remote locations. With 66 low-earth-orbit satellites circling the earth, wildlife researchers are reliably and securely connected, with the ability to send data in real-time and stay safe while in the field.
Species and herd tracking are critical components of wildlife research. Iridium partners utilize our small, light-weight, low-power core technologies to develop solutions small enough to tag animals of all sizes, and capable of tracking over many years, allowing researchers to better understand wild animal behaviors.
Iridium and our partners offers an expansive portfolio of products that deliver real-time connections. From urban animal intrusion alerting systems to animal tracking collars, Iridium’s rugged technology is helping to revolutionize the way wildlife is being observed and recorded.
