Developed in cooperation between Hirschmann Car Communication, Quake Global and Inthinc the ITAS is an efficient, satellite add-on solution, allowing customers to effortlessly connect to Iridium’s (Short Burst Data) SBD satellite network. It is fully qualified and certified to operate through harsh environments. The ITAS’ simple installation and integration make it optimal for any developer who is facing an accelerated time-to-market requirement. This functionality significantly reduces development time and costs, and makes the ITAS ideal for use in applications for the M2M market, including remote asset tracking and monitoring solutions.

Simply—the latest modem and circuit technology paired with best antenna performance and high-end quality in an Iridium certified communication module to deliver maximum flexibility for advanced system designs.

The simple way of getting Iridium to play

Having all your communication needs plug-and-play ready—that is the leading idea behind the ITAS Iridium Transceiver Antenna System.

Covering the entire RF and modem integration the ITAS already has the Iridium 9602 SBD, the Iridium antenna, serial data interface and the power regulation circuit on-board. A M12/8 connector interfaces to the customer hardware.

Designed to communicate Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) it is possible to send Mobile Originated (MOSBD) and Mobile Terminated (MT-SBD) messages. Since there is no RF cable routing outside of the Q-Puck unit, higher network performance is achieved due to the elimination of RF cable loss.


• Reduction of complexity in customers system
• Accelerated time-to-deployment
• No RF cable routing outside of the ITAS unit
• Higher performance - elimination of RF cable-loss
• Significant cost reduction
