The deployment of the Iridium Network was indeed a remarkable scientific and engineering marvel. However the inability to make or receive a phone call indoors quickly became a glaring failure. We were one of the first companies to provide an elegant solution by extending the use of the satellite phones inside a building, a vehicle, or ship.

The MC03 Docking Station is designed for the Iridium 9505A Satellite Phone and is an outgrowth of one of our very first products. We continue to see demand for this straightforward, simple, rugged and reliable addition to the Iridium 9505A phone.

While many view this as a primarily a military offering with its optional encryption/secure sleeve, we see this is a standard in many Maritime operations.

The ASE MC03 Docking station for the Iridium 9505A provides a unique DB9-Connector—An RS232 connection offering direct dial-up applications for data transfer with an Iridium RUDICS connection. The RJ11 connection of the MC03 attaches to any analog/analogue phone connection. Connect directly to an analog phone or use a Wireless–“Walk-around” Phone or “DECT” Phone. The headset and microphone jacks are fully accessible for easy connection to other accessories. The Bright LEDs are easily recognizable as “Ringing,” “Smart Dial” (the feature that recognizes virtually all country codes for easier dialing), and “Connect” when connected.

The MC03 also charges the 9505A Phone—keeping it “topped up” for “Grab and Go” applications. The Docking Station has a wide-ranging power supply input and can operate either with the included AC/DC adaptor that, or by using a Cigar/Cigarette adapter.

The Docking station also has a convenient holder for the 9505A Phone antenna.

Features and Equipment

  • RJ11 Connect. Connects to an analog phone (single or PBX) including multi-handset wireless phones. Use of a cordless phone with expandable handsets can provide up to eight units within a two-mile range (unobstructed) from the base station.
  • Hands-Free Connect. Headset/microphone jack offers audio enhancement circuitry to provide excellent voice quality.
  • Data Port Connect. RS232 port for data connections. Compatible with Iridium’s Direct Internet 2.0 and fax adapter.
  • Built-In Charger (9505A only) Keeps handset fully charged for immediate use when un-docked. (9505 model powers handset but does not charge it.)
  • Built-In Antenna Holder - Convenient antenna storage while docked.
  • Iridium certified product. Additional approvals and certifications include CE and IEC 60945

Advanced Features

  • "Smart Dialing." The Docking Station knows the correct format for the country that is being dialed and places the call once the number is entered. Smart Dialing eliminates the superfluous "00" IDD code (no more international dialing sequence).
  • Simple Operation. The Docking Station combines clear LED status lights with the Iridium handset's graphical display for setup, troubleshooting, programming, and operation.
  • Base Station Ringer. Audible ringing to alert of incoming calls.
  • Versatile Power Input. 10-32VDC input range supports power systems on most vehicles and vessels. An included universal power adapter allows 100/240VAC, 47/63 Hz operation. A DC vehicle adapter is also included.
  • Antenna Options. Can be used with many antennas, including fixed-mast, mobile fixed-mount, and mobile magnetic-mount models.
