    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.

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