The Iridium 9603N is intended for incorporation into a final Iridium subscriber product that would supply power, provide an antenna, and provide user interface components such as keypad and display.
One-fourth the volume and half the footprint of the Iridium 9602 with the smallest form factor of any commercial satellite transceiver available today, the Iridium 9603N is ideal for space-constrained applications including monitoring, tracking and alarm systems.
