Iridium Pilot: Marine Satellite Broadband



Iridium Pilot has been designed to provide the best quality product at the best possible value.  Operating on the Iridium OpenPort service, it maintains all the benefits of its predecessor but with additional features and functionality.
Iridium Pilot has a Performance Enhancement Proxy (PEP) to provide  enhanced protocol for improved data throughput  as well as an integrated firewall to help restrict outbound data traffic to keep usage under control.

Iridium Pilot has a built-in firmware notification system, which will alert users when a new version of firmware becomes available.  The antenna performance utility provides real-time antenna usage metrics to assist in troubleshooting performance issues.

  • Salt spray
  • Water jet
  • Temperature extremes


  • Fully global operation
  • Durable
  • Solid-state design, no moving parts
