Has anyone had implemented an Iridium data solution?
I.e. laptop with iridium USB iridium modem to receiver at a data centre.
I'm interested in preferred vendors/eqpt etc.
Any serious pointers will be gratefully received.
If you are forces you could try going to 15 (IS) Sig Regt for their information, but other than that the Global Sat comms suggested above rings bells with me, don't know if I've dalth with them before.
Its always good to quote Ceuta and Melilla to the Spanish when they start getting lippy , and if they start getting too unpleasant they will loose the desperately needed UK tourist pound , they really do have some of the most corrupt morons in power.
If I understood your requirement correctly, I've installed something along those lines. It was a fallback iridium data link for when/if the VSAT dropped out. Basically Iridium basestation which has data serial port to a serial to USB adaptor (or straight to serial if an old computer) and configured a laptop for 17200 (i think) modem you have to add some extra commands though for it to work. If this sounds about right PM for more info. SO
