Sateliot is a satellite telecom operator for global IoT connectivity merging satellite and terrestrial networks under 5G protocol.

Sateliot is a satellite telecom operator offering global IoT connectivity solutions based on 5G satellite and terrestrial networks. The company plans to offer its commercial IoT service under a 5G architecture from 2022, with a constellation of 100 small satellites.


When a 5G IoT device reaches an uncovered point, it attempts to connect to the terrestrial network of its operator. Sateliot's constellation acts as an IoT cell tower and connects with the IoT device. Sateliot satellites receive, process, and dispatch the received information to the telecom operator core network, which is then received by the customer.


Sateliot's connectivity solutions find applications in a variety of industries, including:

  • Agricultural technology
  • Fishing and maritime (fishing control, security monitoring, etc.)
  • Oil and gas
  • Wildlife
  • Critical infrastructures (distribution of low battery consumption sensors)
  • Utilities
  • Environmental
  • Outdoor sports
  • Livestock (remote monitoring)
Quantum key distribution security

Sateliot plans to secure its smallsat IoT network with a QKD (quantum key distribution) encryption device, enabling the protection of data such as money transfers, commercial transactions, personal data, or remote control of critical infrastructures from external interference.

Quango project

Sateliot's constellation is part of the European Quango research and development project. This project involves Sateliot's participation with research centers such as ICFO, international universities in Malta, the Sorbonne in Paris, and Padua in Italy, as well as companies in the space sector. This project has been backed by the European Commission with funding of €2.1 million.

The project's objective is the design and laboratory demonstration of a dual payload satellite that will enable 5G connectivity and integrate the QKD encryption device into the system.
