THE MYRIOTA DIFFERENCE
Myriota was born out of The University of South Australia’s Global Sensor Network research program. Commencing in 2011, this three-year, AUD 12 M program was led by Myriota Founders, Dr Alex Grant and Dr David Haley, at UniSA’s Institute for Telecommunications Research.
The program culminated in successful demonstrations of cost effective communications with very high numbers of devices during aircraft and satellite trials.
Myriota was formed by Grant and Haley, in partnership with UniSA Ventures. In November 2015 the company secured investment from Canadian-based exactEarth, a leading provider of global satellite based maritime vessel tracking data.
Myriota will use exactEarth’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation for its connectivity solutions.
