MESPAC SRL - Metocean surveys for offshore wind farms

Metocean surveys are regularly conducted for project development of offshore renewable energy farms to forecast energy production, to design optimised infrastructure and to ensure bankability. MESPAC is developing a cloud-based SaaS for metocean surveys delivering significant time reduction and cost saving to conduct an assessment of an offshore wind farm site. The unique selling points are enabled by achieving the same accuracy of in-situ measurement campaigns thanks to the combination of SatEO data and site-specific short in-situ campaigns with proprietary AI gap filling algorithms that increase geographical coverage and historical data.

Astradyne believe that the next generation of in-space assets will rely more and more on deployable systems and structures. Satellite constellations, space stations, and interstellar spacecraft will need new capabilities while reducing their footprint to bring down their cost-to-orbit.



ORIS - Transmitting Wireless Power For Future Human Space Colonies

ORiS (Orbital Recharge in Space) is developing an innovative technological solution based on wireless energy transmission, capable of enabling the energy supply of lunar missions. The solution is based on a constellation of satellites arranged in lunar orbits which accumulate energy thanks to photovoltaic panels and batteries. The energy is then transmitted towards the lunar surface through a laser beam. The receiver on the lunar surface is composed of photovoltaic cells, optimised for the conversion of the monochromatic radiation beam while its shape is studied to minimize the losses due to the inclination of the beam with respect to the cells.



ADAPTRONICS - Make Logistics more Sustainable,
on Earth and In Space

Adaptronics design and produce adaptive mechatronic devices with an electrostatic operating principle that works both on Earth and in Space,
to grasp any object and sensorize any surface


Ohm Space

ohmspace – pioneering spacecraft propulsion

OhmSpace develops ground-breaking resistojet products with higher specific impulse and thrust capabilities than competition. OhmSpace uses safe, cost-effective propellants that are readily available, for example water, enabling faster and more efficient maneuverability. This not only accelerates revenue generation for large LEO constellations but also reduces the risk of space debris collisions by a tenfold factor. Beyond LEO applications for primary propulsion, OhmSpace targets the GEO market by providing secondary propulsion for larger telecommunication satellites by replacing the toxic hydrazine, promoting cleaner and safer space transportation. OhmSpace is forward-thinking, envisioning products tailored for the emerging lunar markets, intending to harness lunar ice as a crucial resource to power lunar satellite constellations, addressing the needs of future lunar inhabitants.




Evolunar develops small autonomous spacecrafts for post-landing mobility services on the lunar surface. The team is working on LuNaDrone, a small spacecraft capable of flying over the lunar surface thanks to its rocket propulsion system and its autonomous navigation system. This innovative vehicle can collect data at a higher resolution than what would be achievable with orbiters and can fly over rough terrain that would otherwise be inaccessible to rovers. Furthermore, its compact size makes it suitable for being transported even on small commercial landers.
The extreme mobility capabilities of this vehicle allow Evolunar to offer a whole range of post-landing services, from exploring sites of interest (like lunar lava tubes and PSRs) to last-mile delivery of customer payloads. This spacecraft can also perform scouting flights to identify resources and collect critical data for efficient mission planning by identifying potential hazards and promising sites to maximize the commercial and scientific returns for the customer.



SPiN – simplify space manufacturing

SPiN offers modularity as a service to satellite and spacecraft manufacturers, providing expertise in design, software, and hardware integration.
It produces a universal adapter that is able to assemble plug-and-play satellite components, simplifying the production of satellites and space shuttles.

The adapter can be used on satellites of various sizes and allows the traditionally rigid internal structure of the satellite to be transformed into a more modular and reconfigurable structure.
This allows satellite manufacturers to expand their compatibility with a greater number of suppliers, reducing costs and component procurement times.

Finally, it reduces satellite assembly times, thanks to the plug-and-play technology, which allows immediate integration of both the software and hardware of the components connected to the adapter.
Through this solution, innovative SPiN democratizes access to space, making it more immediate and affordable, allowing both new and more traditional companies to increase their competitiveness in the market and increase added value for their customers


Kurs Orbital

Kurs Orbital

Kurs Orbital expands human activities beyond Earth by providing rendezvous and docking technology to start-ups and companies which would like to offer in-orbit servicing or logistics missions, but cannot afford the development time and cost for this technology.

ARCap is a standardized module, which enables any kind of spacecraft to perform such missions in a totally autonomous way, dealing also with non-cooperative targets like space debris, faulty or out-of-fuel spacecrafts.

The algorithms running the ARCap module come from the soviet Kurs rendezvous-acquisition system, used continuously since 1985 and responsible for more than 300 successful dockings in orbit between Soyuz-Progress vehicles, the MIR and the International Space Station.

Space V

Founded in 2021 as a spin-off from the University of Genoa, Space V is a company committed to the research, development and commercialization of systems for growing plants in space habitats - orbiting stations and Lunar settlements. In these contexts, environmental conditions are much more severe than on Earth, and the motivation to save mass, volume and energy is particularly strong. Space V proposes an innovative solution, a patented greenhouse called the Adaptive Vertical Farm (AVF), which can adapt the volume available to the plants’ cultivation to the level of growth of the plants themselves, maximizing the production yield in a given volume and reducing the energy consumption.
The Space V greenhouse can serve the demand of researchers in space agriculture as well as, in the near future, the nutrition of astronauts. Although the focus of the Space V Adaptive Greenhouse is Space, its technology may also be of interest on Earth, particularly in hostile, challenging environments.
