With our Tiger-1 and Tiger-2 missions already in orbit, we are now accelerating the deployment of our satellite network,

said Omar Qaise, founder and CEO of OQ Technology.

Tiger-3 will provide better access, increased capacity and shorter revisit times for our customers. With every launch our satellite and telecommunication capability is improving and becoming more powerful. We will announce further launch missions with more advanced mission capabilities soon.

With the ‘cell-tower inside the satellite’ technology, OQ aims to provide real-time global connectivity with ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) and massive machine type communications (mMTC) for applications in rural and remote areas. The company’s 5G IoT/M2M communication constellation is particularly suited for applications in industries such as oil, gas, logistics, mining and defence.

We have been very successful in demonstrating our service to a large base of customers around the globe. We also have received great interest from large enterprise clients that want to partner with us. Together with our existing partners, it will allow us to scale up the constellation deployment with more missions in a very short time,

Qaise added. The company recently successfully tested its user terminal in harsh desert conditions. During those tests, OQ was able to collect data from customer assets, connected smart meters to the satellite, tracked mobile assets, and even managed to achieve indoor connectivity and localization of the device while buried in the sand with no external antennas.
