International Astronautical Congress 2022 (IAC 2022) will bring together all space communities, alongside the burgeoning global ecosystem and start-ups, entrepreneurs, laboratories, research scientists and manufacturers that could get involved in space activities or benefit from them.
KappaZeta is a science-driven remote sensing company – one of the few with expertise to meaningfully utilize Sentinel-1 radar data. Using radar imagery provides a more regular and timely data feed compared to optical data, which is affected by cloud interference and variable illumination conditions. Continuously measured and calculated parameters, together with machine learning algorithms, enable us to solve monitoring use-cases for numerous industries, with agriculture being the focus so far.
Crystalspace is doing R&D in space camera systems and innovation in space illumination modules that complement cameras. Crystalspace cameras are in the Earth’s orbit and also landing on the Moon in 2023 with NASA Artemis mission. Crystalspace camera systems are small and lightweight, suitable for cubesats, satellites, landers, rovers etc. with main usecases: computer vision, monitoring mission critical events, separation, landing etc. Cameras are also available in stereo configuration.
SKUDO’s hardware-based technology enables us to provide secure encryption and authentication that can be integrated in any data communication solution that needs high level of security. At SKUDO we have developed our own FPGA encryption chip (HSM on a chip), made entirely in Europe, fully verifiable, transparent and backdoor free. SKUDO works daily on projects that need cybersecurity – with ESA(European Space Agency) contracts, with other EU space companies, and developing encryption IP softcores.
CybExer Technologies provides sophisticated cyber range platforms for events, either as SaaS or on-prem solution. CybExer flagship offering is a cyber range to conduct highly realistic live-fire exercises for improving prevention and response strategy, complemented by the sandbox solution that tests and challenges IT infrastructure to locate and identify vulnerabilities. CybExer’s cyber range solutions have been proven globally across the public and private sector, across various skills levels.
Founded in 2015, Spaceit offers infrastructure for satellite communications as-a-service. Spaceit has developed a single cloud-based platform for mission control, ground station services, and cyber defence exercises. It is used for telemetry and telecommand (TMTC), binary data exchange, payload data delivery, orbit and contactprediction, contact management. The platform is aggregating various groundstation services, providing cross network communication worldwide. Furthermore, Spaceit platform is used in large-scale live fire cyber defence exercises (suchas NATO CCDCOE’s Locked Shields with over 3,000 participants), as well as development, testing and validation of satellite communication systems.
Milrem Robotics is the leading European robotics and autonomous systems developer and systems integrator. Through our products and services, we seek to increase human safety and labour efficiency in a number of targeted industries, particularly in defence, agriculture, forestry, municipal services, rescue and mining. Milrem Robotics secured recently a European Space Agency contract to start applying its autonomy capabilities towards planetary rovers.
Tartu Observatory is the main space research centre in Estonia. The research areas of Tartu Observatory are space technology, Earth observation, cosmology, and stellar physics. The Space Technology Department focuses on tasks required for humanity’s long-term sustainable existence and further expansion into space, including space navigation, mapping, space technology, in-situ resource utilization, and astrobiology. As the technologies required for space use need to be tested on Earth, the department is also involved in industrial autonomous ground vehicle development.
Guardtime was founded with a mission to make the world’s information universally reliable, without reliance on the risks of human trust. Our invention, KSI, was originally designed to support the Estonian Government in its quest for zero-trust systems i.e. systems that can provide formally verifiable mathematical proof of the correctness of operations.
