OSIL SBD Iridium Satellite Modem

The OSIL SBD Iridium Modem offers truly global coverage for low cost data telemetry, including currents and waves, using the Iridium satellite network. 


Iridium is the only satellite network that allows transmission of information from any point on Earth 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – other networks have no coverage in the polar regions, and have intermittent or no coverage in other marine and land areas.


Messages cost as little as 4p using the big bundle deals available, and credits can be shared between multiple devices or saved up for future deployments, even if you are not paying line rental. Messages sent via Iridium take just seconds to reach you, via email, or directly to your web-service.


• Minimal monthly line rental
• SBD messaging with big bundle deals available.
• Operating Temperature -30 to 60 °C
• Power Consumption max 450 mA
• RS232 serial connection


  • Remote Land Stations
  • Offshore Platforms
  • Developments outside cellular network coverage areas
