"Iridium is pleased to provide satellite voice and data communications to the LONGITUDE Expedition. We're glad we can help the team communicate with those who can further their cause."
- Will Kraus, Iridium
The Iridium Satellite System is the only provider of truly global, truly mobile satellite
voice and data solutions with complete coverage of the Earth (including oceans, airways and
Polar regions). Through a constellation of 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO) satellites operated by
Boeing, Iridium delivers essential communications services to and from remote areas where terrestrial
communications are not available. The service is ideally suited for industrial applications such as
heavy construction, defense/military, emergency services, maritime, mining, forestry, oil and gas and aviation.
