Satellites take Myriota’s constellation one step closer to providing real-time, always-on service.
IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2019 – Myriota Pty Ltd has partnered with Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems, Inc. to develop and launch multiple satellites in 2019, taking Myriota another step towards its goal of having a constellation of 50 nanosatellites.
Each satellite will run Myriota’s unique, patented software which provides reliable, direct-to-satellite Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity for millions of users worldwide.
“This partnership is an important milestone for our company,” said Myriota’s Chief Technology Officer and co-founder, Dr. David Haley. “It represents a valuable next step for our business in expanding our constellation.”
In speaking about the overall capabilities, Dr. Haley added, “the satellites we’re launching with Tyvak incorporate leading small satellite technology. The architecture is designed to maximize satellite operational availability, providing an always-on service for our customers from the moment they launch.”
The satellites will allow our customers to communicate with devices from anywhere on the planet using Myriota’s low cost, long battery life, secure service while we continue to build a constellation towards providing real-time connectivity.Dr David Haley, CTO, Myriota
The partnership will leverage Tyvak’s experience in satellite development, launch brokering and on-orbit operations, with Myriota selecting Tyvak from more than a dozen worldwide providers for its agile approach and capabilities, security, and mission assurance.
“We are very excited to expand our reach to new territories and applications while contributing to South Australia’s ecosystem development. Myriota has been a great partner to work with from day one and having recently completed the first program review, we look forward to executing this mission and enabling their business objectives,” said Marco Villa, Tyvak’s COO.
