Connecting the wild with nano satellites

30 minutes presentation
Coen Janssen Hiber

What are nano-satellites and why do we need them? 

In 2016 Hiber was founded by a team of Dutch satellite experts and tech entrepreneurs, and the company has specifically launched their nano-satellites to provide Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to remote, unconnected areas of the world. Hiber is pushing the boundaries and making life better for everyone.  Hiber’s nano-satellite circles the globe and passes the North and South pole 16 times a day and any spot on the equator twice a day, thus offering the first worldwide Internet of Things network at low cost.

Coen Janssen will explain the new wave of nano-satellites and show how these bring new services and resources to the earth’s most distant locations.
