WHY CHOOSE IRIDIUM CERTUS®?

SUPERIOR RELIABILITY

Iridium’s unique cross-linked Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) network delivers the highest reliability of any commercial satellite network and our cross-linked, meshed architecture provides redundancy afforded by no other commercial satellite constellation.

GLOBAL COVERAGE

Iridium’s constellation of 66 Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellites is the only satellite network to provide pole to pole connectivity.  From takeoff to landing and everywhere in between, Iridium keeps you connected throughout your flight.     

LOW PROFILE ANTENNAS

Iridium is the only network that can delivery reliable broadband connectivity to small form factor, low-profile antennas.  With a height of less than 6cm, Iridium antennas produce almost no drag, and can be installed just about anywhere on the aircraft.

MULTI-SERVICE FUNCTIONALITY

Iridium recognizes that the connectivity needs for aircraft are as diverse as the missions they support.  To provide maximum utility in the limited footprint available in an aircraft, Iridium platforms are designed to support a broad range of voice and data functions.  No other aircraft connectivity solution delivers the versatility and value as Iridium.
