SatSleeve turns cell phone into sat phone

ADVERTISEMENT

The newest version of the Thuraya SatSleeve transforms a standard iPhone into a satellite phone.

 

By docking an iPhone into the SatSleeve, users can call and send text messages in satellite mode and even use satellite mode when there are no terrestrial networks available. The SatSleeve also acts as a backup battery, letting users operate for longer times.

 

Thuraya’s satellite network covers more than 140 countries or two-thirds of the globe. With the high penetration alerting capability (HPA), Thuraya SatSleeve enables the phone to receive calls even with the satellite antenna stowed.
