Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone

Our Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone is the only option for making satellite voice calls at or near the polar regions and is particularly suited for maritime applications.

The Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone runs on one of the largest satellite constellations in existence, offering truly global coverage of all the earth’s lands, seas and skies.

From a design perspective the Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone is one of the smallest satphones that ever existed, bringing a beautiful aesthetic to an old school design.

With a ruggedness rating of MIL810F the Iridium 9575 Extreme is the most rugged of all satphones, however – as with all satphones, the antenna remains sensitive to drops.

Iridium 9575 Extreme can be configured to send GPS position reports at automatic intervals, with the recipient receiving emails with links to your position on Google maps.

The SOS button on the Iridium 9575 Extreme is monitored by GEOS from where Iridium 9575 Extreme customers can also purchase optional search and rescue services.

The omni-directional antennas of the Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone means the user never has to do antenna pointing as may sometimes be required with other satphones.

Friends and family can send free text messages to Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phones using a free web app that Ashbury SatCom gives all our customers access to.

  1. Works very well.

    Mark Smith

    I bought the extreme recently due to failings in operation of a main competitor’s product. The extreme works very well, I use it in the sailing world and like the facility of the GEOS SOS button coupled with facility to buy SAR insurance cover relatively cheaply for my voyage to Svaldard this summer.

    Lifesafer in a accident

    Mario Wacker

    I bought the Iridium Extreme in 2011, it was the year when this phone came on the market. It worked well, but the voice transmission sometimes was not that good. Ashbury made a recall for all first edition Iridium Extreme. Because I sailed around the world, I had a delay of more than a year, to send it back. I never had any problems with my wishes and now the phone works good. As this phone with a GPS is my lifesafer in a accident, there is no other system, which works more efficient. My only wishes for the perfect phone would be: The phone is protected for 5m underwater, charging batteries by induction and no plugs on the outside.
    Kind regards Mario Wacker.-
    I would recomend myself, to test ore better, to create the perfect product for extreme use.
