Iridium Certus® for the U.S. Government

At your service.

No other company can help mobilize and monitor personnel, data, and assets on the ground, beyond line-of-sight, and out of reach of terrestrial networks – anywhere on the planet. Iridium is providing mission-critical, tactical, real-time voice, and low-latency data when you need it most.

Iridium Certus is truly the next generation offering in mobile L-Band. Coupled with the ThalesLINK portfolio of products, Iridium is delivering state-of-the-art solutions for mission critical applications in both commercial and government markets. Thales is excited to be in partnership with Iridium and is looking forward to continuing our collaborative efforts for years to come.”

Why Choose Iridium?

High Mobility

Iridium’s network is built for mobility providing connectivity and communications on the move, allowing ships, vehicles, aircraft, and personnel to remain in contact while serving anywhere in the world.

Multi-Service Connectivity

Iridium Certus is a multi-service platform providing users the ability to maintain simultaneous access to:

  • High Quality Voice
  • Midband and Broadband Data
  • Tracking and Monitoring
  • Other over the top (OTT) services across Iridium Certus terminals.

Reliable Coverage

Unlike distant Geostationary satellite networks that limit geographic use and experience service degradation during inclement weather, Iridium Certus operates through the truly global, reliable, and weather-resilient L-band based Iridium network comprised of 66 Low-Earth Orbit satellites.

Robust Terminals

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 these terminals.
