Iridium - International Approval to Offer Satellite Air Traffic Safety Services

Iridium : 03 January, 2008  (Company News)
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council approved standards and recommended practices (SARPs) that will permit Iridium® Satellite to provide Aeronautical Mobile Satellite (Route) Services (AMS®S) for commercial aircraft on transoceanic flights.
'The ICAO AMSS approval opens a significant new market for Iridium in the international commercial aviation sector,' said Greg Ewert, executive vice
president, Iridium Satellite. 'Iridium's dramatic double-digit growth in the aeronautical marketplace over the last few years has been largely driven by
the business jet and Helicopter sectors. The ICAO decision means that member states can now approve Iridium satellite equipment to meet the international
requirements for redundant communications when flying over ocean regions. As a result, we expect to see rapid adoption among long-haul commercial carriers
in the coming year.'
