Aurora: Iridium Marine Terminal for VoIP, WiFi, Data, and More

Satellite Technology To Survive Any Weather

We recently mentioned our sponsorship of two arctic rowers. Matt and Cam dipped their oars in the water a little less than a week ago. Before they left, they went through the familiar flurry of activity making sure everything was packed and ready. As any sailor knows, the most important equipment (okay, besides the boat) is for navigation, communication, and emergency contact.

We’re thrilled to be able to equip them with this product, and they were thrilled to have it. After all, how many satellite phones can provide VoIP through a cell phone, WiFi hotspot, GPS tracking over iPad, data email services, single-unit installation (including power through ethernet), and can also survive arctic weather conditions in a row-boat? (Answer: none).

The Aurora Iridium Marine Terminal is the first of its kind, so it seemed fitting that Cam and Matt had it on their first-of-its-kind expedition.

You can also relay your tracking information to a unique webpage so that family and friends can track your progress.

The Aurora does practically everything any cruiser or vessel needs. It combines the power and versatility of an Iridium phone (with the incomparable pole-to-pole coverage it offers) with the flexibility and ease-of-use of a modern WiFi setup.
