We are pleased to welcome Iridium as our 2020 Safety and Communications Partner!
Iridium may be a new official partner, but the Rebelle knows the company well – having invested in their satellite communication systems and Iridium enabled products since the inaugural rally in 2016. The rally, competitors, and fans watching from afar count on Iridium far more than they realize.
Not only do competitors utilize Iridium for safety communications through traditional satellite phones and YB trackers, the Rebelle’s operational backbone is powered by Iridium. From scoring technology to managing staff safety communications on course, we trust Iridium for the most important aspects of the competition. Rebelle’s mission to be a proving ground for manufacturers is also supported by Iridium, via our data visualization and communication system, allowing OEM’s to see their vehicle’s performance even when moving through remote cellular-free locations.
“The Rebelle Rally is an extremely challenging environment requiring robust safety and communications solutions,” said Rebelle founder Emily Miller. “To build a world-class competition, you need world-class products and partners supporting you every step of the way. That is why we have trusted in Iridium since day one.”
For Iridium, who is trusted by more than a million pilots, governments and agencies, first responders, and more, the partnership is a natural fit. “Iridium is proud to support the Rebelle Rally and serve as the official safety and communications sponsor. We hope the participants have fun and know that our network is always ready to help them compete safely!”
