How Skylo Helps Industries Across the Globe
Skylo opens the door to diverse applications and transformative results for public and private sector customers. A sampling of such applications includes:
Vehicles & Equipment
Mobilizing data for shipping and logistics
Telemetry sensors are now routinely integrated or retrofitted on trucks and railway cars. But a key component – the connectivity required to make the data actionable – has been missing until now. By equipping vehicles with Skylo’s geographically ubiquitous connectivity, customers can access real-time delivery updates, ensure the integrity of temperature-sensitive deliveries like pharmaceuticals or food, monitor maintenance schedules, certify safety compliance, and more.Learn More
Digitizing the fisheries industry
4.6 million fishing vessels worldwide can now be connected for the first time using Skylo. Skylo’s Hub connects to existing Android devices over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, allowing fishermen to access life-saving two-way SOS, stay connected with their fleet operators, and access markets to transact their catch while still at sea.Learn More
Improving agriculture crop health and productivity
As the demand for food and stress on farmland rises, Skylo empowers farmers to make the most of their operations. With real-time data on growing conditions (e.g., air temperature, moisture level, soil pH), farmers can create better water schedules, apply the precise mix of fertilizer needed, and optimize growth cycles for the greatest crop yield. The benefits are clear: lower energy costs, less water usage, and healthier crops. Skylo also supports emerging business models for equipment sharing. In this case, farmers and equipment owners can connect to and share heavy-duty machinery, which enables millions of farmers to increase their productivity through affordable access to needed equipment.Learn More
Connectivity for modern passenger transportation systems
Railway systems, long-distance buses, and other vehicles can use Skylo toLearn More
transmit vehicle health data that supports better performance and
efficiency. Skylo can enable the delivery of preventative maintenance
alerts and even saves lives by triggering alerts in the case of an abnormal
track vibration, sudden braking or acceleration, or sharp turns.
Save lives with critical remote alerts from the most sensitive and remote areas.
Large scale, distributed sensor networks for disaster warning systems are currently limited by cost constraints and availability of reliable network connectivity in remote regions.
After disaster strikes, critical telecommunications infrastructure is often the first thing to go offline due to power loss or physical damage, making satellite communications the only reliable channel.Learn More
