Iridium NEXT Satellite Constellation
Iridium is the only provider of truly global satellite voice and data solutions with complete coverage of the earth (including oceans, air-ways and Polar Regions). Iridium delivers essential communications services to and from remote areas where no other form of communication is available. Iridium makes this possible through its constellation of 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO), cross-linked satellites and 11 in-orbit spares. The Iridium service is ideally suited for industries such as maritime, aviation, government / military, emergency / humanitarian services, mining, forestry, oil and gas, heavy equipment, transportation and utilities.
Global connectivity is mission critical and satellite communications is the only way to deliver it – across land, sea and sky. The second-generation Iridium NEXT satellite constellation will be ready to deliver with enhanced and entirely new capabilities to meet rapidly growing demand for truly global mobile communications.
