Satellite Phones for Sled Dog Racing

For generations, sled dogs have been known as one of the few reliable ways to traverse large distances over frozen landscapes. In frozen areas like Alaska, Canada, and Greenland, some places today are still only accessible by sled. Sled dog teams have contributed to mail delivery, supply runs, and exploration and were a major part of the gold rush in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Roald Amundsen relied on teams of sled dogs during his groundbreaking expedition to the North Pole. Undoubtedly, these hardy, fearless, and intelligent dogs are a part of history.

Developing an Iridium 9603 Application

Posted by OutfitterSatellite on 9/27/2016 to Iridium 9603
Satellite communications is not just for humans. In recent years Iridium satellite communications in particular has become a common choice for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. Conventional terrestrial cellular networks can fail due to weather, earthquake or other regional emergencies. M2M applications need to be highly reliable, so M2M satellite communication equipment is increasingly being selected. In some cases, there also is a need for broader ranging coverage than is available from terrestrial cellular networks. For this reason, M2M satellite communication applications now include global monitoring of vehicle and cargo container fleets, monitoring of oil pipelines, and even aerial drones.
