    Clearly the most important application!
    "Iridium already has 66 operational satellites in orbit, with more to come starting in 2017. Among the key applications enabled by STL, Cobb said, is ensuring automated beer delivery trucks, like Anheuser-Busch's “Otto,” don't get hijacked, which the room agreed is really very important. Other possible applications were also suggested"
