IridiumNEXT

Iridium NEXT — Iridium’s second-generation global satellite constellation — is a fast approaching, game-changing reality.

Scheduled to begin launching in 2015, Iridium NEXT will maintain the existing Iridium® constellation architecture of 66 cross-linked Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites covering 100 percent of the globe. It will dramatically enhance Iridium’s ability to meet the rapidly-expanding demand for truly global mobile communications on land, at sea and in the skies.
