Ѕateliot “GroundBreaker” is the first of a constellation of more than 250 satellites launched by ЅpaceX into low Earth orbit, operating under 5G standards.

Names “The Pioneer”, satellite transmitting data in a relatively small orbit (10 kg) with the number Sateliot_0, designed to communicate with ground-based mobile towers and fill gaps in global data networks. The Falcon 9 rocket launched April 15 from SpaceX’s launch facility at Vandenberg Space Station in California. The Sateliot company in Barcelona, Spain, operator of the GroundBreaker and the Sateliot_X constellation, sees the technology as an opportunity to access Internet of Things (IoT) globally.
“For the first time in history, terrestrial mobile networks are seamlessly integrating with satellite connectivity, and Sateliot is leading this revolution.”said the company representative. “Sateliot hopes to fill 85% of the cellular connectivity gap around the planet, opening up a wide range of applications in private and public markets, including road, rail, air and transport transport and sea transport, with the potential to affect the efficiency of hundreds of industries. »
By connecting the IoT to mobile data transmission networks in orbit and on the ground, Mateliot wants to extend the capabilities of participating devices. Users can move from a terrestrial 5G network to orbit without purchasing additional hardware such as antennas or modems. They can continue to use the current SIM card and operator. This facilitates the application of IoT networking globally.
Dateliot_0 is the company’s first satellite, but once scaled, each satellite will orbit the Earth in 90 minutes, providing coverage three times larger than the US state of Texas. Sateliot did not reveal the launch date and the rocket that will carry the next satellite into orbit. The number of super constellations planned or under development continues to grow. Besides SpaceX’s famous Starlink satellite, the European Union and China have also developed their own constellation of satellites.
