In a world where global communications are increasingly essential, only one company connects everyone to the things that matter most, from pole to pole. Iridium Communications Inc. is the only mobile satellite service (MSS) company offering pole-to-pole coverage over the entire globe. The Iridium constellation of low-Earth orbiting (LEO), cross-linked satellites provides critical voice and data services for areas not served by terrestrial communication networks. Iridium's subscriber growth has been driven by increasing demand for reliable, secure, global communications. Iridium serves commercial markets through a worldwide network of hundreds of partners, and provides services to the U.S. Department of Defense, and other U.S. and international government agencies.
