Myriota partnership to create new wave of space manufacturing in SA

11th November 2019

Lot Fourteen based global leader in nanosatellite Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, Myriota, has entered into a partnership deal with global manufacturer Motherson to produce its Myriota Module; a cutting edge, low powered device that securely transfers data to the Myriota Network of satellites from anywhere on the planet.

Production is well underway, with Motherson already manufacturing tens of thousands of Myriota Modules at its South Australian design and manufacturing facility and delivering them across the globe.

The collaboration has been welcomed by the Premier of South Australia, Steven Marshall, who said he was excited to see South Australian manufacturing being leveraged to grow the state’s space industry.

“This is yet another example of two companies collaborating across this exciting, high-growth industry in our state, creating the jobs of the future,” he said.

“Myriota is a proud South Australian company now making an impact on an international scale.

“Partnerships like this bolster South Australia’s reputation as a global leader across the space sector, attracting even more national and international companies to invest in our state.”

Myriota’s growing list of partners and customers include Optus, Amazon’s AWS and Boeing. It is the first partnership that Motherson has entered into with a space or Internet of Things (IoT) business in Australia; enabling Motherson to expand its business into these industries.

Myriota co-founder and Chief Technical Officer Dr. David Haley said the collaboration demonstrated that it was possible to keep design and manufacturing within South Australia.

"Myriota and Motherson are examples of two South Australian businesses excelling in their respective industries,” Dr Haley said. “Our partnership demonstrates that manufacturing capabilities in South Australia, which once primarily served the automotive industry, have diversified into new sectors, including Australia’s growing space sector.”

Motherson Business Development Director for Asia Pacific Sam Vial said the partnership was an important step in diversifying the company’s business.

"We’re thrilled to become Myriota’s manufacturing partner and expand our operations to include the space and IoT sectors,” he said.

“This partnership will help to sustain jobs in our South Australian facility, with products being both designed and manufactured locally."

Motherson will manufacture millions of Myriota Modules in South Australia over the next five years. Built on an edge computing platform, the module allows for third party integration with a huge range of sensors and devices. These devices communicate directly with Myriota’s nanosatellites to provide sensor data updates on valuable resources to a wide range of businesses.
