    Not sure of it's use as a mobile unit in an open ocean. It seems to be designed to be observational similar to Ocean data buoys that are normally deployed in specific sea areas without movement. It's a gadget looking for a job.

      Well the brochure talks about normal operating speed and a 1500Nm endurance...so it seems they expect it to move somewhat.

        Mmm.... first thing that stood out for me looking at that brochure pic was the EMO buttons
        A strong wave splashes on that, it's button pushed and lights out for this gadget !

          Also Iridium Pilot which is a Copyright Company name have charges per time/data used, as the avenue used is a satellite phone line. Mil. Ops. usually don't pay third parties for combat circuits.
