TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 28, 2018 — Boeing’s (NYSE: BA) HorizonX Ventures division has invested in Myriota, an Adelaide, Australia-based internet of things startup, in a bid to help the former advance its direct-to-orbit platform designed to facilitate communications for IoT-connected devices in remote locations, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.
