More than 80% of the world’s surface does not have Internet connectivity. While multiple companies are commercially bringing broadband connectivity to “people” in remote locations, these solutions are very expensive for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Over 75B IoT devices are expected by 2025, and the lack of IoT connectivity in 80% of the Earth’s surface is preventing several industries that operate in remote sites, such as Agriculture, Renewables, Fisheries, Supply Chain, etc., from realizing the true potential of data and AI. As a result, a revolution of IoT industry in space has the utmost importance. Several business ventures have already started rolling the wheel. Hundreds of satellites have been launched to date. Although launching satellites has become nondescript nowadays, “IoT in space” brings about unique needs, opportunities, and challenges. In this talk, we will walk you through what today’s “IoT in space” industry looks like and how we can actively shape the future.
