Send and receive messages from anywhere on Earth

The RockBlock allows you to send and receive short messages and data from anywhere on Earth with a clear view of the sky. It works far beyond the reach of Wi-Fi and GSM networks. Do you want to transmit weather information from mid ocean or control a robot in the middle of the desert? The RockBLOCK is a simple plug and play satellite communicator with a built in antenna. Easy to set up, it can be integrated into your own systems. It is controlled by a set of simple AT commands. It is also highly compatible with other systems such as Windows, AWS, Linux and Raspberry Pi. Messages up to 340 bytes can be sent from your RockBLOCK and 270 bytes sent to. Data can arrive either by email or directly to your own web-service. With low power consumption, it can be used with batteries or solar.

Compact, Robust, Versatile

Using the power of the Iridium satellite network the RockBLOCK 9603 can send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth. With plug and play satellite communications out of the box, the RockBLOCK can easily integrate with your existing systems.

  • Compact Size
  • At only 45 x 45mm and weighing in at only 45 grams; the RockBLOCK is highly suited to projects where a compact solution is needed such as weather balloons or ocean buoys.

  • Low Power Consumption
  • The RockBLOCK runs on a 5v DC power input or on a 3.7v DC battery making it very usable in remote environments with limited mains power supply. The Sleepmode conserves power when not in transmission.

  • Antenna
  • An integrated Antenna allows the RockBLOCK to be truly plug and play from the box. However due to its versatility an external antenna can be added if your project requires it.

  • Integration
  • The RockBLOCK can be controlled by a series of simple AT commands, making it easy to integrate into your own systems.

  • Easy 2-way Global Messaging
  • Messages up to 340 bytes can be delivered to your chosen email address or sent your web service as a simple HTTP post. 270 byte message can be received by the RockBLOCK.

  • Global Coverage
  • Messages can be sent anywhere on Earth as long as your RockBLOCK has a clear view of the sky.

  • Pay As You Go Satellite Communications
  • Simple pay as you go satellite communications, offering excellent value for money. Credits can also be pooled between devices and our Cloudloop billing system allows you to manage your airtime needs.
