Event Details


A SpaceX Falcon 9 FT 5 ECA rocket will launch the Iridium-7 payload from Space Launch Complex 4E, Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, United States.

The Iridium satellite constellation provides L-band voice and data coverage to satellite phones, pagers and integrated transceivers over the entire Earth surface. Iridium Communications owns and operates the constellation, additionally selling equipment and access to its services. It was originally conceived by Bary Bertiger, Raymond J. Leopold and Ken Peterson in late 1987 (and protected by patents by Motorola in their names in 1988) and then developed by Motorola on a fixed-price contract from July 29, 1993 to November 1, 1998, when the system became operational and commercially available.

Launch Site: Space Launch Complex 4E, Vandenberg AFB, CA, USA.
