Social Connecting in smart city at Night

Connected objects are booming

We need to move from limited to affordable global coverage

With the support of CNES, CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites) annouces the creation of a new subsidiary: Kineis


With connected watches, cars and now even houses, the time has come for the IoT (Internet of Things) revolution. According to a study published by CISCO, by 2020 there will be more than 30 billion connected objects in the world.

This unprecedented development will transform the world economy. Currently, 90% of the world is either not network-connected, or connected but prohibitively expensive. Furthermore, today’s IoT offer is difficult to use.

Yet the needs exist now:

  • How do you find a lost container? Or a container is transporting perishable goods: how do you remotely control its temperature?
  • A traditional fishing boat suffers engine failure: how do you send out an SOS call? How do you track it down to offer assistance?
  • A hiker in Nepal wants to share his trip with his friends and family in real time: how can he post his route?

Logistics, fishing, agriculture and outdoor recreation are all sectors seeking affordable global connectivity!
