About Marine
Sky Connect's Mobile RJ-11 interface supports up to five standard wired or cordless telephones. It also connects to PBX systems, permitting access to the Iridium network from any PBX phone. Multiple Iridium phone numbers may also be linked to a PBX system. SMS messages may be sent and received simply by connecting an Iridium Intelligent handset to the RJ-45 interface. This handset has features similar to a typical GSM-type cell phone, including memory dialing by name (in-phone or in-SIM) and user setup menus. MARINE is also equipped with a serial data port that is compatible with any computer.

About Iriduim
Iridium's constellation consists of 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO), cross-linked satellites operating as a fully meshed network and supported by multiple in-orbit spares. It is the largest commercial satellite constellation in the world.

The Iridium service is ideally suited for industries such as maritime, aviation, government/military, emergency/humanitarian services, mining, forestry, oil and gas, heavy equipment, transportation and utilities. For example, tens of thousands of aircraft are currently equipped with Iridium-based systems and nearly half of the traffic on the Iridium network comes from international waters.

Key Benefits

SIM Card and PIN Options
A standard SIM card is securely locked within the transceiver unit. Iridium PIN security features may be operated using telephone keypad commands.

Iridium Transceiver Antenna
Sky Connect MARINE is coupled with a high gain helix antenna for superior visibility of Iridium network satellites. It's designed for harsh marine environments with a waterproof… easy installation.

Position Reporting with TRACKER
Sky Connect TRACKER adds real-time automated vessel location and status reporting functionality to the MARINE platform. Location data can be derived from the shipboard GPS or from the optional GPS receiver within the MARINE transceiver. Encrypted reports may include position-reporting data, such as ship's identifier, location coordinates, course, and speed. Standard reporting rates are determined by fleet requirements and the rate can be changed automatically or manually, by the ship’s crew or remotely by the ship's corporate office or control center. Ship and fleet tracking can be monitored using Sky Connect's web-based TRACKER MAP service.
