“Mini-satellite company Myriota, which has shareholders including the investment arm of aviation giant Boeing and former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, is pushing hard into the United States and Canadian market in the Internet of Things sector.
A seventh Myriota nano-satellite, the size of a loaf of bread, was launched from a private rocket launch site at Mahia on New Zealand’s North Island on Tuesday and forms the bedrock of the push into North America. Myriota uses a variety of launch companies, and in December 2018 one of its satellites was on a rocket launched by SpaceX, the group operated by Tesla founder Elon Musk.”
