International space supplier Beyond Gravity has accepted four startups into its internal incubator program "Launchpad." Together with Beyond Gravity, the startups will develop solutions for the future of the space industry over the next eight weeks. They are focusing on artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and innovative propulsion systems for satellites.
Beyond Gravity launches the first round of its incubator program at its headquarters in Zurich. The Launchpad development program supports young entrepreneurs and their promising ideas and solutions for the space industry. Over the next 8 weeks, the four nominated companies will conceptualize different use cases and test new approaches. The second round of applications for Beyond Gravity's incubator is already underway.
André Wall, CEO of Beyond Gravity, is very much looking forward to the collaboration: "I am excited about the ideas of the startups and equally excited about which innovative ideas we can develop and implement together."
Four Startups Selected by Beyond Gravity
- Modulos: It helps users to set up a working AI model in a short time by means of a data-centric AI platform. Modulos reduced the workload for labeling and cleaning data, which is still very high today. Beyond Gravity is interested in collaboration in the area of product quality prediction and optimization.
- RevoAI: It supports model-based engineering of hardware and systems by building a digital platform or digital twin. With the help of AI, early testing can take place based on existing CAD or 3D models. Beyond Gravity sees potential throughout the testing space products.
- Rimon: It develops applications in the field of augmented reality (AR). Augmented reality solutions are used to execute defined technical processes faster and more precisely. Beyond Gravity sees potential in the space sector in general, where many processes must be clearly defined and executed step by step.
- Gate Space: It offers a chemical propulsion system for satellites with innovative injection technology. This enables highly efficient thruster configurations, maneuvers, and spacecraft stabilization. As a global supplier of components for satellites, Beyond Gravity sees potential in the collaboration.
Over the next eight weeks, the four teams will be accompanied by external and internal experts as well as members of top management. Lukas Gnilka, Launchpad program manager, explains: "Our goal is to work with the startups to conceptualize use cases internally and learn from each other." At the end of the incubation phase, a demo day is held to present use cases and discuss further collaboration or possible partnerships internally.
