Periodic Reporting for period 1 - GIoT (Nano-satellites based Global Infrastructure to Enable IoT/M2M Networks - GIoT (Global IoT))
Reporting period: 2019-05-01 to 2020-04-30
The GIoT infrastructure will combine constellations of interconnected Nano-satellites and traditional satellites with a worldwide network of ground receiving stations and communications processing systems to permit constant data exchange between ground and space segments critically important for IoT/M2M applications. The GIoT will bring
three critical key partners and their unique expertise together to create the combined offer of novel service.
The main objectives of the GIoT project are: 1) Bring GIoT project technologies from the current TRL6 to TRL8 through piloting process; 2) Prepare for commercialization and scale-up. The project output will be a GIoT prototype of a Nano-satellite-based communications system at TRL8. The core GIoT technologies to be developed are: I. A multi-functional Nano-satellite bus, designated as the M6P (NanoAvionics); II. An inter-satellite communications link (ISL) (NanoAvionics); III. A fleet of commercial ground stations (KSAT and NanoAvionics); IV. A GIoT software Application Programming Interface (API) (NanoAvionics). The project will follow the so-called NewSpace philosophy, which is centered around low-cost, high functionality and optimal quality Nano-satellite technologies."
