*About Lacuna Space*
Lacuna Space, based in the UK and the Netherlands, is a global Internet of
Things (IoT) connectivity provider. It offers low cost, easy and reliable
global connections to sensors and mobile equipment everywhere. The company
is revolutionising the connection of sensors and equipment to  the internet
with low-power, wide-area networking technology. This connection revolution
is being built around open-standards, such as Semtech's LoRa® (long range),
and freely available network chips that developers can easily configure
into flexible and secure networks, ready to be deployed publicly, privately
or by communities.

Lacuna Space's plan is to deploy a constellation of 32 small satellites in
low Earth orbit (LEO) forming the Lacuna Network. Because the satellites
travel in polar orbits, the Lacuna Network will provide ubiquitous coverage
for devices in regions without reliable wireless coverage.

The company works closely with The Things Network in Amsterdam. Its network
includes developers and collaborators in the US, France and Switzerland.
