Keep Track of Equipment Around the World

Companies who work with power lines, gas pipelines, water lines,
valves and protection systems need access to real-time data and
communications in order to:

  • Monitor, automate and manage assets more efficiently
  • Optimize equipment use, maintenance and security
  • Reduce equipment failure and downtime
  • Improve productivity and resale value
  • Maximize and protect investments

SCADA

Taking Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems Further Than Ever Before

Many utility and energy companies rely on SCADA systems to extend applications into regions outside of reliable terrestrial or cellular communications. Iridium and its partners help implement well planned SCADA systems, allowing organizations to deliver power reliably and safely, lower costs and achieve higher customer satisfaction.
