Connected to space
We live in an interconnected world where the solutions and applications that emerge to make our lives easier are increasingly dependent on connectivity and location data. This is the case of new mobility applications, the development of smart cities, or digital twins to replicate certain environments (urban ones, railway, roads, etc.).
Mass market and user applications account for more than 90% of satellite location and positioning solutions, and in the coming years, the number of IoT devices is expected to reach 30 billion.
Connectivity is here to stay, and in this new connected scenario, space appears as the main facilitator of technology, providing not only data and services, but also communications infrastructure, thus contributing to bridging the digital divide in more remote areas. or depopulated.
A new space for the future
Are we covered?
While satellite constellations are designed to achieve full coverage in the service area, sometimes the performance or the reception of the signals themselves may be degraded due to the particularities of the area, such as in urban areas with tall buildings, or in mountainous areas, for example.
It is therefore important to have proper simulation and forecasting tools such as SIDESAT that allow estimating the coverage and availability of satellite communications and GNSS signals, without the need to deploy on-site infrastructure.
