Iridium 9603 Miniature Transceiver Module

Ideal for space-constrained applications

With the smallest form factor of any commercial satellite transceiver available today, the Iridium 9603 is ideal for space-constrained applications including monitoring, tracking and alarm systems. It is also highly affordable, costing just slightly more than the previous-generation Iridium 9602.

  • Pole-to-pole global coverage
  • Single-board transceiver
  • Very small form factor offers unmatched flexibility
  • Single header connector for power, on/off control, logical level asynchronous UART control and network availability
  • Simple AT command interface
  • No SIM card
  • Designed to be incorporated into an OEM solution
  • Automatic notification to the transceiver that a mobile-terminated message is queued at the gateway
