Helios Wire is building a satellite-powered Internet of Things network, overlaid on top of the blockchain.
The business model is to build small tags, some as small as a cell phone. These tags will transmit data to space — they will be programmed to send information like location, elevation, temperature, proximity, and so forth. They can also be connected to other sensors for applications like precision agriculture, mining, asset tracking, logistics, and environmental monitoring.
The data will be captured by a constellation of Helios satellites and then downlinked to existing ground stations. From there, the data will uploaded to the cloud for analysis, machine learning, machine-to-machine transactions, and to help decision making.
There are 3 satellites currently scheduled for launch over the next 12 months, and then future satellites will be built as revenue demands.
Vertically integrated and satellite enabled, the Helios system allows for efficient
and affordable monitoring, tracking,and messaging communications with as many as 5 billion devices, worldwide.
