Iridium Unveils Midband Satcom Service With Partner Products; Matt Desch Quoted - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Iridium Communications has introduced its Certus 100 midband satellite service to support government, maritime, internet of things, land mobile and aviation customers.

Iridium Certus 100 launches with several portable, battery-powered products from the company’s partners that can be integrated as an onboard satellite communications system for connected vehicles, aircraft and vessels, Iridium said Wednesday.

SkyLink from Blue Sky Network and LT-4100 from Lars Thrane are among the first available partner products for Iridium Certus 100. LT-4100 is a maritime satcom product, while SkyLink is a dual-mode data management platform for ground, air, sea and IoT applications.

Other Iridium Connected partner products are Ground Control’s RockRemote, McQ CONNECT, NAL Research Quicksilver and the Flylogix UAV system.

“Our new Iridium Certus 100 midband service is designed for applications that are agile, remote, and need more throughput than our traditional narrowband offerings, but don’t demand the speeds or larger, heavier antennas used in our popular Iridium Certus broadband solutions,” said Matt Desch, CEO of Iridium and a seven-time Wash100 awardee.

Iridium Certus 100 can support email and messaging applications, telemetry reporting, media sharing, file transfer and internet/virtual private network access and can back low-resolution video transmission for monitoring and surveillance operations.
