Logistics within the next century will be defined by a massive increase in contextual data — from precise, up-to-the-minute weather forecasts, to door-to-door tracking across all oceans and remote territories of the planet.

These new applications will be delivered using novel approaches to remote sensing from low earth orbit. They will offer truly global context in near real-time and put decision makers into the driver’s seat with certainty, where today there are risks and wide-ranging probabilities.
