The 9555 incorporates innovations such as integrated speakerphone, improved SMS and email capabilities, and an upgrade Mini-USB data port. The Iridium 9555 features a dramatically redesigned and amazingly intuitive user interface-making reliable communication more reliable than ever.The highly anticipated Iridium 9555 Handset is 30% smaller and 27% lighter than the 9505a. With a significantly reduced footprint from the previous Iridium hand held models, it is more hand-friendly in form, and its aerodynamic features such as an internally stowed antenna, this sleek handset is designed to go wherever you do. Without exception. It is engineered to withstand the world’s toughest environments, so the world’s toughest customers can depend on it as a critical lifeline whenever and wherever need takes them.-

About the FlightCell Pro

Flightcell Pro provides the leap forward in communications integration by simultaneously connecting one or more complementary communications options into a aviation headset: Cellphones, for deep penetration calls in areas covered by conventional or tactical cellphone networks Iridium and other satellite phones, for fully global communication at any altitude, anywhere on earth Military tactical radios for close contact group operations. When Flightcell Pro is plugged into the aircraft or vehicle interphone system (ICS), the user can communicate over both the ICS and any connected devices. Operating off inbuilt rechargeable batteries and with a second headset connected, Flightcell Pro becomes a portable, voice-activated two-place intercom, enabling rapid and inexpensive deployment of communications on aircraft or vehicles without an ICS or radios. When connected to a portable radio or phone, Flightcell Pro provides a compact communication option for ground crew. Flightcell Pro enables convenient hands-free operation of the connected phones or radios, delivering high-quality audio in any high-noise environment where handheld devices are normally unusable. Interfaced communications & audio devices Flightcell Pro can be used to interface virtually any communications or audio device: Satellite phones, including Iridium 9505/9505A,9555,9575 Thuraya and Inmarsat M Cellphones Hand-held radios, including tactical radios Audio recorders and cameras Other audio sources: eg. iPod/CD/MP3 player, laptop computer or specialised audio monitoring equipment. Secure communication When used with the Iridium 9505/9505A with encryption sleeve, or other phones or radios with encryption modules, Flightcell Pro enables rapid deployment of secure global communications in vehicles and aircraft.-

Understanding Iridium's Satellite Network

The Iridium system is a satellite-based, wireless personal communications network providing a robust suite of voice and data features all over the globe. It is comprised of three principal components -- the satellite network, the ground network and the Iridium subscriber products, including phones and data modems.

The design of the Iridium network allows voice and data messages to be routed anywhere in the world. Voice and data calls are relayed from one satellite to another until they reach the satellite above the Iridium handset or terminal and the signal is relayed back to Earth. When an Iridium customer places a call from a handset or terminal, it connects to whatever satellite happens to be overhead, and is relayed among satellites around the globe to whatever satellite is above the appropriate Earth gateway, which downlinks the call and transfers it to the global public voice network or Internet so that it reaches the recipient.

The satellites are in a near-polar orbit at an altitude of 485 miles (780 km). The 66 active satellites fly in formation in six orbital planes, evenly spaced around the planet, each with 11 satellites equally spaced apart from each other in that orbital plane.

A single satellite completely circles the Earth once every 100 minutes, traveling at a rate of 16,832 miles per hour, and traveling from horizon to horizon across the sky in about ten minutes. As a satellite moves out of reach, the call is seamlessly handed over to the next satellite coming into view.
