Iridium Long-Range Identification & Tracking (LRIT)
Reliable LRIT, everywhere on the planet.
LRIT equipment is now a mandatory requirement for ships on international voyages. All ships of 300 gross tonnage and above, including passenger ships, cargo ships, high-speed craft, mobile offshore drilling units and cargo ships must be compliant with the LRIT regulations set forth by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
Only Iridium combines truly global coverage with a range of dedicated LRIT devices. With Iridium you get:
Global Coverage: From pole to pole, Iridium LRIT is always connected. For ships operating in Sea Area A4, Iridium is the only LRIT-compliant option available.
Flexible Options: Iridium and its global network of application service providers (ASPs) offer a range of reliable, high-performance dedicated Iridium LRIT devices.
Exceptional Performance: Iridium LRIT is enabled by Iridium’s SBD (Short Burst Data) service, the most efficient method of tracking and monitoring mobile assets and information.
