The Iridium Pilot has now been superseded by Iridium Certus

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.
