Consumer IoT has traditionally been one of the strongest growth opportunities for MSS IoT markets, with Iridium in particular seeing record growth through consumer products such as the Garmin InReach, which currently dominates this market. Globalstar likewise has a strong showing with its SPOT range of devices. However, a growing number of announcements in the.
The space and satellite industry was back together in force at SATELLITE 2022, with greater international participation than recent years. Topics like in-orbit servicing, software, and the commercialization of IoT took center stage. Here are NSR’s top takeaways from the event….
According to Northern Sky Research (NSR), the smallsat IoT business is on the way to becoming a $1 billion market in just eight years. New Space startups in this area are increasing their momentum of building constellations and developing technologies, aiming to provide keener competition with the big satellite companies. These predictions, IoT applications, and more were.
From the booming satellite launch market to higher frequency of human activities, the space domain has never been of more important to all space-faring nations. NSR forecasts over 24,000 satellites are expected to launch over the next decade, creating a never seen before problem for operators. This boost in activity has led to a new.
However, other small satellite IoT companies are developing constellations promising similar capabilities, noted Northern Sky Research [Consultant] Alan Crisp, which he said “should lead to 10-year battery life too, i.e., only send data when there’s a satellite overhead to save power.” One of these is Sateliot of Spain, which says the ability for its upcoming.
