WHY CHOOSE IRIDIUM?
Iridium’s network is built for mobility providing connectivity and communications on the move, allowing vehicles, ships, aircraft, and personnel to remain in contact while serving anywhere in the world.
Iridium Certus is a multi-service platform providing users the ability to maintain simultaneous access to voice and midband or broadband data, tracking and monitoring, and other over the top (OTT) services across Iridium Certus terminals.
Unlike distant Geostationary satellite networks that limit geographic use and experience service degradation during inclement weather, Iridium Certus® operates through the reliable L-band based Iridium network comprised of 66 Low-Earth Orbit satellites. This unique constellation architecture allows Iridium Certus® to provide service anywhere on the planet in all weather conditions.
Based on Iridium’s unique Low-Earth Orbit network, Iridium Certus® terminals utilize antennas with stationary internal components providing enhanced reliability and a lower profile design to enable new applications for satellite services. Unlike Geostationary terminals that require complex and expensive steerable antennas or manual pointing to connect, Iridium terminals feature omni-directional antennas that automatically connect with the closest Iridium satellite wherever positioned in the sky, simplifying the set-up and use of Iridium Certus® terminals.
WHY CHOOSE IRIDIUM CERTUS?
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.
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.
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.
Iridium Certus midband and broadband services are deployed by select partners with a proven history of delivering innovative solutions to U.S. Government customers with specific requirements. With these leading value-added partners, Iridium is advancing the way the U.S. Government communicates every day.
MissionLINKTM and VesselLINKTM
The MissionLINKTM and VesselLINKTMby Thales are providing government and military customers with access to the fastest L-band speeds for reliable communications on the move through Iridium Certus. Additional Iridium Certus solutions for the U.S. Government are expected as Iridium works closely with key partners on new devices.
Secure Iridium Certus services are provided exclusively by COMSAT through the dedicated U.S. Government gateway and infrastructure. U.S. Government customers may also purchase standard Iridium Certus service through commercial service providers with the appropriate governmental authorization.
