What Is Iridium?

The Pilot uses the Openport service form Iridium. It is easy to install and provides a workable Internet connection at sea (or port) as well as phone service to three individual phones. These terminals are built to withstand any condition such as heavy rain, rolling seas, freezing, blazing, and even snow. Best of all, the Pilot has 100% pole-to-pole coverage keeping the vessel connected anywhere and everywhere on the globe.
