In a world first, Myriota has pioneered a new way to retrieve data from anywhere on earth, either on land, sea or in the air. Leveraging years of customer focused R&D and an extensive suite of patented innovations, Myriota delivers secure, long battery life connectivity, everywhere. The first Myriota LEO satellite was successfully put into orbit in November 2018 as part of the BRIO project launched on the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. Myriota’s applications span multiple industry sectors, including Agriculture, Transport and Logistics, Maritime, Defence, Environment, Mining, and Utilities.
The Intellectual Property portfolio licensed to Myriota was born out of the Global Sensor Network program at UniSA’s Institute for Telecommunications Research. UniSA researchers, Dr Alex Grant and Dr David Haley led that research program and worked closely with UniSA Ventures to develop an IP and commercialisation strategy leading to the establishment of Myriota in November 2015.
Myriota received an initial investment of $2m from Canadian-based exactEarth, a leading provider of global satellite based maritime vessel tracking systems and further funding from UniSA Ventures and founders. In March 2018 closed a A$20 Series A round including investment from Australian VC firms Main Sequence Ventures and Blue Sky Ventures (SAVCF) plus Boeing HorizonX Ventures, Singtel Innov8 and Right Click Capital.myriota.com
