The C1b3rWall Academy module on networks and architectures is becoming very interesting as students are learning about technologies that go beyond the field of cybersecurity. This time, Antonio Tornero Jiménez, will introduce us to the Satellite Internet of Things.

Antonio Tornero Jiménez is the manager of SolarTDI, he headed the development of the Air Force Communications Academy and has given more than 100 courses to security and telecommunications professionals. He will be delivering a keynote lecture on “Satellite Internet of Things”, which belongs to Module 1 of C1b3rWall Academy 2021: “Networks and architectures”.

Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of objects and the internet, this connection can be established through a terrestrial connection via cable, fibre optics, wireless or satellite.

Satellite Internet of Things refers to the global connection of people and things. The first artificial satellite, named Sputnik, was launched by the Soviet Union in 1957. It managed to emit a radio signal with a beep that was heard on the Earth, confirming its orbit, altitude and coordinates. Subsequently, America developed two satellites, Echo 1 and Echo 2 in the1960s, where the latter had a diameter of more than 100 meters. The surface of those satellites acted as a “mirror” that bounced the signals emitted from one location on the Earth to another location.

Initially, satellites were conceived for use in areas such as:

Meteorology, preventing countless climatic catastrophes.

Telecommunications, the area in which satellites have become widespread.

This is definitely a very informative and engaging talk that you can listen to at C1b3rWall Academy 2021.
