ESA Start-up Space zone at IAC 2018: Thursday 4/10 events
At the International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2018), ESA`s Start-ups Space Powered by ESA space solutions presents Thursday 4 October 2018:
Thursday 4/10 10:00-11:00: Pitching by the following start-ups:
SkyfloX offers cost-effective environmental monitoring using sensors riding piggyback on commercial aircraft. Services include very frequent Earth observation data and communication packages.
Blackwave provides a highly automated process for cost-efficient production of complex carbon-fibre components.
PlanBlue has devised its hyperspectral underwater ‘DiveRay’ camera to for smart, AI-guided mapping of the seafloor
GITAI offers a humanoid telepresence robot-like avatar for science experiments in space stations and Moon-based developments.
Orbital Oracle Technologies with launch 100 CubeSats to provide real-time weather conditions and better forecasting services.
Sputnix manufactures high-tech nanosatellite, microsatellite components and cubesat platforms with ground test benches for testing and equipment for aerospace education.
Thursday 4/10 15:00-16:00: Pitching by the following start-ups:
SPiN is developing ‘plug and play’ satellites, based on Lego-like building blocks. They simplify satellite integration through the use of standardised elements and a universal adapter.
Klepsydra Robotics is applying advanced techniques from the software industry to optimise embedded space systems in support of autonomous navigation and on-board image processing.
AT-Space is developing miniaturized, highly integrated satellite components, targeting the coming generation of satellite mega-constellations.
Coletti Biotechnology is developing a portable molecular and cellular automated laboratory for DNA analyses where conventional diagnostic tools are not available, and on long-duration space missions.
Avant Space Systems is developing an innovative ion propulsion thruster to let small satellites get on the move.
Reaction Dynamic develops an orbital launcher with a proprietary hybrid rocket fuel technology for the microsatellite market.
