Iridium NEXT Satellites
Iridium is replacing its current satellite constellation with 75 Iridium NEXT satellites. With the help of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, the satellites will be launched into space over eight different launches. The NEXT satellite constellation will enable global mobile communications over 100 percent of the earth’s surface.
With the new constellation, Aireon will provide the first global air traffic surveillance system with visibility across the planet, regardless of terrain, location and infrastructure.
