Iridium Pilot®

Delivering Exceptional Value, Performance and Durability at Sea

Iridium Pilot®

Iridium Pilot® is uniquely engineered to keep ships connected in blazing sun, frigid cold and high winds, over the Earth's entire surface; open ocean or polar regions.

Unparalleled coverage and connectivity

Iridium Pilot is built with the same reliable high-quality voice and data capability the world has come to trust from the only pole-to-pole satellite communications company. The unique cross-linked architecture of Iridium's global constellation of 66 Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites gives Iridium Pilot inherent advantages in performance and dependability – making it an ideal platform for primary or back up communications.

Multiple phone lines keep your crew connected

Iridium Pilot's three independent phone lines help boost crew morale by letting your crew stay in touch with family and friends. Affordable prepaid options allow calling even at peak times. Crew calls are also easily separated from ship's business calls for simplified accounting.

Flexible, high value data options

For email, web browsing or business operations, Iridium Pilot leverages the Iridium OpenPort® broadband service to offer a wide range of flexible, high value global service packages that meet the needs and budget of ships, large and small, everywhere.

Lightweight, durable and easy-to-install

The lightweight, low profile Iridium Pilot omnidirectional satellite antenna can be easily mounted at any convenient location on deck, and can withstand the effects of nearly any maritime environment. Iridium Pilot also provides near real-time usage metrics to assist in troubleshooting.

With an upgraded network, Iridium is poised now more than ever to meet the growing demand for global communications on land, at sea, and in the skies – far into the future.
