Deep-dive into how space data can enrich IoT and Consumer Solutions startups, with EUSPA experts Justyna Redelkiewicz and Manuel Lopez


A webinar series for business advisors and experts working with Consumer Solutions and IoT startups, EUSPA highlights uniquely for EU|BICs how data from satellites can unlock new business opportunities for your clients. As an important source of information, space data continues to enable opportunities for non-existing use cases.

Data from satellites have become an important source of information unlocking new business opportunities and enabling non-existing use cases. EBN together with the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) organises a series of webinars showcasing how space data enriching industries are already today. During the webinars, the EUSPA will introduce the EU Space programmes and activities towards entrepreneurs and start-ups, deep dive into how space data can enrich different sectors and examples of existing projects.

The second webinar will be focused on Space Technologies for Consumer Solutions and IoT and the benefits that EU Space Programmes bring to them.

During the webinar we will present:

  • The latest market trends of Consumer solutions and IoT, existing and the most promising applications
  • Added-value of Space programmes and how its differentiators can benefit the consumer market and IoT, such as GNSS Raw measurements as one of the high accuracy positioning techniques for the development of mobile apps, early warning system to support disaster management, signal authentication to prevent spoofing, additional frequencies for better accuracy in urban environments, and high accuracy service for more demanding applications
  • How Copernicus earth observation data and services are used to provide quantitative information in-app such as weather conditions and forecasts, UV index levels, and water and air quality

The number of sold devices powered by Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are forecasted to grow from 1.8 billion units in 2021 to 2.5 billion units in 2031! Consumer devices, such as smartphones, tablets, personal tracking devices, wearables, digital cameras and portable computers will represent more than 90 % of these devices. Additionally, the European earth observation (EO) programme Copernicus is the largest space data provider, currently delivering 16 terabytes per day. Consumer Solutions using satellite data comprise a multitude of applications, tailor-made to satisfy different usage conditions and needs (e.g. lifestyle, tourism, health).

Global uptake of IoT applications has been rapid and enthusiastic and by 2025 it is estimated that there will be around 27 billion IoT connections. With many interconnected devices in the IoT environment constantly on the move, there are applications that require or might at least benefit from knowing the precise location of a given device.
