Iridium Satellite ServicesIridium Satellite Phones
SMS Service

The Iridium System is a satellite-based, wireless personal communications network providing a robust suite of voice features to virtually any destination anywhere on earth. The Iridium satellite system comprises three principal components: the satellite network, the ground network and the Iridium subscriber products ranging from satellite phones to pagers. The design of the Iridium network enables voice and data to be routed virtually anywhere in the world. Voice and data calls are relayed from one satellite to another until they reach the satellite above the Iridium Subscriber Unit (handset) and the signal is relayed back to Earth. Both a terrestrial and space based network, the Iridium constellation consists of 66 operational satellites and 13 spare satellites orbiting in a constellation of six polar planes. Each plane has 11 mission satellites performing as nodes in the telephony network. The 13 additional satellites orbit as spares ready to replace any unserviceable satellite. This constellation ensures that every region on the globe is covered by at least one Iridium satellite at all times. The satellites are in a near-polar orbit at an altitude of 485 miles (780 km). They circle the earth once every 100 minutes traveling at a rate of 16,832 miles per hour. Each Iridium satellite is cross-linked to four other satellites; two satellites in the same orbital plane and two in an adjacent plane.
