The Iridium Advantage
Iridium GMDSS enhances your safety at sea, offering reliable coverage where no other options exist. The Iridium network is designed to work in extreme conditions at sea. Our unique constellation of 66 cross-linked satellites in Low-Earth Orbit provides reliable coverage, even in adverse weather, around the entire globe, including over the Arctic and Antarctic waters in Sea Area A4. The inaugural Iridium Connected GMDSS terminal from Lars Thrane supplies all three (3) satellite GMDSS services at about 25 percent of the cost of the current equipment requirements.
