Space system for machine-to-machine communication (M2M) / industrial Internet of Things (IoT)

The space system is implemented on small spacecraft developed by OKB Fifth Generation with the support of the Atmospheric Research Department of Novosibirsk State University, using the Cleon I satellite platform.

The first satellite of our space system was launched into orbit on September 28, 2021.

Satellite network architecture

The space system consists of ground satellite terminals, which either directly query the monitored objects or serve as a base station for a ground sensor network.

The satellite terminals transmit collected data to our space segment, which consists of small spacecraft operating in LEO.

Satellite segment deployment proceeds in several stages. As the first stage, two spacecraft were already launched by OKB5.

Communication services are already provided for objects that do not require real-time monitoring. Existing constellation provides up to 8 communication sessions per day.

By 2025, two more satellites will be launched. By 2027, additional 40 satellites will be added to the constellation, and additional orbital planes will be formed, reducing the waiting time for a communication session to several hours. By 2030, the constellation will be able to provide real-time sensor queries.
