Myriota partners with Motherson satellite IoT modules

A module designed to directly and securely transfer data to the cloud via nanosatellites has expanded production under a new partnership between its creator, Myriota, and manufacturing company Motherson.

The partnership has already seen Motherson create tens of thousands of ‘Myriota Modules’ in their South Australian design and manufacturing facility, to be shipped out across the globe and serve Myriota partners and customers such as Optus, Amazon’s AWS and Boeing.

Myriota said the modules are built on an edge computing platform, allowing for third-party integration with a range of sensors and devices. Their direct connection to Myriota’s nanosatellites removes the need for additional gateways, towers or other ground-based infrastructure, helping to streamline deployment, maintenance and management, according to the company’s website.

Myriota Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer Dr David Haley said the collaboration shows “that manufacturing capabilities in South Australia — which once primarily served the automotive industry — have diversified into new sectors, including Australia’s growing space sector”.

One of the first companies to benefit from the partnership, however, will be Zepiro and its mining sector clients.

Zepiro Chief Operating Officer Damien Cox said the module “provides a great market opportunity for our business in industries like mining and agriculture where long-endurance remote resource monitoring is vital. The low-cost and robust nature of this technology allows us to economically retrieve critical telemetry from difficult-to-access locations.”

Motherson is expected to manufacture millions of Myriota Modules over the next five years.
