The Iridium Advantage

Iridium GMDSS enhances your safety at sea, offering reliable coverage where no other options exist. The Iridium network is designed to work in extreme conditions at sea. Our unique constellation of 66 cross-linked satellites in Low-Earth Orbit provides reliable coverage, even in adverse weather, around the entire globe, including over the Arctic and Antarctic waters in Sea Area A4. The inaugural Iridium Connected GMDSS terminal from Lars Thrane supplies all three (3) satellite GMDSS services at about 25 percent of the cost of the current equipment requirements.

Iridium GMDSS Services

All Iridium Connected® GMDSS terminals come standard with functionality for all satellite GMDSS services. Unlike the historic options, Iridium Connected GMDSS terminals initiate both Distress Alert and Safety Voice quickly with the press of just one button.

  • Distress Alert
  • Activated by the press of a button, distress alerting sends basic, but critical data to a Rescue Coordination Center (RCC): ID, Status, Position
  • Maritime Safety Information (MSI)
  • MSI is transmitted through an Enhanced Group Call (EGC) service called Iridium SafetyCastSM: Navigational, Meteorological, Safety-Related
  • Safety Voice
  • Connect to an RCC and other maritime authorities through a call to share additional details about the distress situation: High Priority Calling, Hydrographic Reporting, Medical Assistance
  • Additional Features
  • Distress Alert Relay, Shore-to-Ship Distress Calling, Maritime Assistance, Standard Maritime Calling & Messaging
