Nanosatellites, global networks, and the new race for space – Mike Walsh

April 24, 2017

Matt Pearson, along with Fleet’s other two co-founders, saw an opportunity to use nanosatellites to enable the world’s next industrial revolution, the connection of the estimated 75 billion devices set to come online over the next decade.
