Space AI and Lime Microsystems Unveils Revolutionary NODE IO at MWC 2024: Powering the Future of Unmanned Vehicles and Distributed Communication with Solar-Powered 5G Technology**

In a significant leap forward for unmanned vehicle technology and distributed communication systems, Space AI has proudly unveiled the NODE IO (Input/Output) at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024. Hosted within the innovation hub of the Vodafone stand in Barcelona, this groundbreaking tiny satellite marks a milestone in compact, efficient technology.

The NODE IO, a mere 5cm x 5cm in dimension, is engineered as a 5G solar-powered station, incorporating the cutting-edge Lime Microsystems LMS 7002 SDR (Software Defined Radio) as its core component. This innovation is poised to redefine the landscape of unmanned vehicles, robotics, and distributed communication infrastructure, offering unparalleled efficiency and reliability.

Developed in utmost secrecy, the NODE IO has now been deployed across the planet Earth’s ground segment in the inaugural TEST NETS. These networks span from California in the United States to various countries across Latin America including Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and extending to the United Kingdom. Utilizing the cubesat standard—an open-source satellite protocol—NODE IO targets a broad market encompassing unmanned vehicles, robotics, distributed communications, and computing infrastructure.

Space AI’s journey began with the launch of its first satellite in 2021, and the company is gearing up to launch the first batch of its satellite constellation in the fourth quarter of 2024. This strategic deployment underscores Space AI’s commitment to advancing the frontiers of space-based technology and its applications on Earth.

Founded in Silicon Valley, Space AI boasts operations across the globe in the United States, SpacePort Cornwall in the United Kingdom, and Uruguay. This international presence reflects the company’s ambition to be at the forefront of technological innovation and its dedication to fostering global connectivity and technological advancement.

The unveiling of the NODE IO at MWC 2024 heralds a new era of technological innovation. Space AI is poised to lead the charge in transforming the capabilities of unmanned vehicles and distributed communication systems, leveraging the power of solar energy and 5G technology to create a more connected and technologically advanced world.
