Iridium Pilot

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.

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.

Ready for Iridium NEXT

All Iridium NEXT satellites are scheduled for launch by late 2017.  Starting in 2018, the Iridium NEXT constellation will enable Aireon’s satellite-based system to provide global aircraft surveillance in real time. Iridium and SpaceX have partnered for a series of seven launches, with ten Iridium NEXT satellites deployed at a time. For more information on Iridium NEXT, go to

Iridium’s next generation global satellite constellation will provide backward compatibility and ongoing support for Iridium Pilot and other Iridium solutions – ensuring longevity and security of users’ purchase for decades to come.
