The LLG4ir.com is a collaborative space between La Linea and Gibraltar of trust and knowledge exchange for the development of 4IR related technologies. Also, it will be the perfect for the discussion about the latest trends and its technological applications, and the regulatory frameworks for different industries in terms of: artificial intelligence, blockchain , cryptocurrencies, NFTs, the Internet of things, machine learning, Big Data , nanotechnology, and the impacts of this revolution on the lives of people and governments.
The speed of these developments taking place in this field and the blurred borders between the sectors due to the use of information technologies are the main reasons for the creation of the Centers for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, whose mission is to ensure that the benefits of the current era impact all of humanity.
WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey “) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, Blockchain and IoT company, announced today the signatures of two Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with Mr. Fabian Picardo, Chief Minister of Gibraltar and the Mayor of La Línea de la Concepción, Mr. Juan Franco, for the development of a joint 4th Industrial Revolution Center of Excellence (LLG 4IR Center of Excellence) spearheading innovation in the region.
La Línea-born Carlos Moreira is the founder of the cybersecurity fi rm WiseKey and its wise.art subsidiary. WiseKey is in partnership with FOSSA Systems, which itself is engaged in launching a constellation of 88 orbital satellites
FOSSA Systems, a leading aerospace company in Spain focused on the development of picosatellites for IoT communications, WISeKey International Holding Ltd, (“WISeKey,” SIX: WIHN / Nasdaq: WKEY), a Swiss cybersecurity, AI and IoT company, and the City Council of La Línea de la Concepción (Cádiz) today announced that they have completed the installation of the first ground station that will serve as the control base for the direction of IoT satellites. With this installation, marks the completion of the first phase of the MoU signed earlier this year between the municipality of La Línea and WISekey for the creation of a 4th Industrial Revolution Center of Excellence (LLG 4IR Center of Excellence) in Gibraltar.
The installation, carried out on the roof of the La Línea de la Concepción City Hall building, lays the foundations for the new Fourth Industrial Revolution Center of Excellence, to become the connection point for the deployment, control, and communication of IoT satellites, such as the constellation WISeSat developed by WISeKey. WISeSat is a dedicated and secure IoT connectivity solution anywhere on Earth that uses picosatellites and low-power sensors, among other satellite deployments from FOSSA Systems.
“The station is a first step in a large network of control centers that will be deployed with the launch of this first constellation. It is a specialized station in peak control and high-performance nanosatellites,” said Julián Fernández, CEO of FOSSA Systems.
The installation is part of the development of the LLG 4IR Center of Excellence by WISeKey, having as a goal the establishment of a technological center specialized in industries such as blockchain, satellites or AI, in cooperation with leading companies in the space such as its partner FOSSA Systems.
“The LLG 4IR Center of Excellence will play a fundamental role in enhancing the technical skills of the regional workforce and will bring advanced technological capabilities to make the region’s digital transformation a reality,” said Juan Franco, Mayor of La Línea.
At a technical level, the autonomous ground station has a displacement rotor able to modify the pointing of the station, thus obtain greater performance in communications and high control over the deployed satellites. In addition, it has two different frequency UHF bands, and the one known as the S band, each with different functionalities. This allows high-speed communications with constellations of all kinds.
