About the Company

We are a deep-tech NewSpace company. Following 3 years of artificial intelligence development at Stanford and Singapore, the team has now settled in Toulouse since 2020 to start its In-Orbit Servicing activities.
Our Mission is to offer Satellites Operators a competitive offering to manage their fleet, from Inspection & Surveillance to Life Extension Services. Space Infrastructure is growing and so does the need for maintaining satellite assets in orbit. We believe that Space Sustainability can be enhanced now by providing in-orbit services and later, by supporting debris removal actions with proven technologies.
Our first 2 Nano-satellites are scheduled for launch in September 2022 and January 2023 in GEO Orbit enabling a steady revenue stream for the next stage of our technology development.
