Iridium 9602N Transceiver
The Iridium 9602 is the next-generation SBD Transceiver from Iridium. Designed for integration into complete wireless solutions, it provides the critical global data communications necessary for today’s global solutions.
The small size, low-cost and ease of integration make the Iridium 9602 ideal for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions such as automatic vehicle location, asset monitoring, marine and personal tracking applications.

Preventing Illegal Deforestation
The world’s two largest rainforests, the Congo Basin and the Amazon, are under threat from illegal extraction activities. Unfortunately, authorities have long lacked the means and mechanisms to deal with these illegalities which destroy ecosystems and undermine both forest and indigenous people's livelihoods.
Drifting Buoys for Multi-Use Projects
Drifting Buoys are versatile kits that anyone with the know-how can use to retrieve their own oceanic data. Generally, the main purpose of drifting buoys is to measure ocean currents and sea temperatures, the data of which is then transmitted back to research labs on the mainland for analysis.
