A next generation telecommunication platform based on a nano-satellites constellation

Project description

A precious strand of pearls around the equator

Many of us can hardly remember what life was like before the era of internet connectivity and mobile devices and cringe at the thought of what would happen to our social and professional lives if we were to lose them. However, most people around the world lack access, mainly in low-income rural areas in countries along the equator. As large and expensive telecoms satellites are not an option, the EU-funded Pearls Constellation project is developing a constellation of 200 inexpensive yet sophisticated nano-satellites to service the region. The project promises to open a new world of personal and professional opportunities, benefitting both the customers and the rest of the world with whom they come in contact.
