      Iridium SBD 9603 SBD data modem

      Iridium 9603 is the world’s smallest commercially available two-way satellite data transceiver, designed for applications where space is at a premium and communication is critical.

      Iridium 9603 is ideal for space constrained uses, including fixed, mobile and battery powered applications. One-fourth the volume and half the footprint of its predecessor, Iridium 9603 combines the global coverage of the Iridium satellite constellation with the low latency of the Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) service to provide highly reliable satellite communications from pole to pole.
