EVERYWHERE is a strategic collaborative of companies creating products and services to help save lives
Garmin's mission is to create superior products for automotive, aviation, marine, outdoor, and sports that are an essential part of their customers’ lives. Garmin is our partner in the design and development of the inReach Satellite Communicators used in the EVERYWHERE Platform.
The Iridium Satellite Advantage
Iridium’s crosslinked mesh architecture creates a web of coverage encompassing 100% of the planet from Low Earth Orbit, providing low-latency, weather resilient services unlike any other satellite provider. No other network matches the reach, coverage, and reliability of Iridium.
Orbital Planes: 11
On-Orbit Spares: 9
Ground Spares: 6
Distance From Earth: 476 miles (780 kilometers)
Satellite Speed: 17,000 mph (27,350 km/h)
Iridium Satellite Communications
At only 780 kilometers from the Earth, the proximity of Iridium’s LEO network means poleto-pole coverage, a shorter transmission path, stronger signals, lower latency, and shorter registration time than with GEO satellites. In space, each Iridium® satellite is linked to up to four others creating a dynamic network that routes traffic among satellites to ensure global coverage, even where traditional networks are unavailable.
EVERYWHERE App is now available on FirstNet
The FirstNet mission is to deploy, operate, maintain, and improve the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety. This reliable, highly secure, interoperable, and innovative public safety communications platform will bring 21st century tools to public safety agencies and first responders, allowing them to get more information quickly and helping them to make faster and better decisions.
