Lacuna Space has launched its second IoT satellite after a successful launch on a Soyuz-2 rocket. This satellite is another piece of Lacuna’s IoT network, which is now one step closer to becoming a global IoT network. The CubeSats that are being launched are minimal in size, making them more cost efficient, and orbit at 500 km above the Earth, allowing them to circle Earth 14 times each day.

Lacuna’s satellites store messages retrieved from IoT sensors that they connect to for a short period of time before passing them to a ground station. The messages are then relayed directly from the ground station to Lacuna’s cloud platform, with the data then made available to view on the application that Lacuna offers. This is not the only option because Lacuna offers the ability to have the data relayed to a third-party application via a terrestrial network, too, if preferred by the end user. The technology that is offered by the United Kingdom-based space company includes battery-powered sen…
