Time (JST) Program
14:25–14:35 Business of Recycling Abandoned Ships And Shipwrecks
Team Name: BRASAS / Representative: Mr. Yuya Shibata
Abandoned boats, which are difficult for local governments and individuals to dispose of, have a high possibility of becoming marine litter, causing marine pollution and secondary disasters, and have become a worldwide problem. We are applying the technology of positioning and automatic operation based on satellite data to transform an abandoned boat into an automatically navigable culture raft. We will realize sustainable business friendly to the sea by reducing the number of abandoned boats and reducing the labor of conventional aquaculture through automatic navigation.
14:35–14:45 Improving small spacecraft mobility with a hybrid kick motor
Team Name: Letara / Representative: Dr. Landon Kamps
The human economic sphere is expanding into Earth orbit through the use of small satellites. However, small satellites with no propulsion capability remain in orbit with no prospect for future traffic management. The construction of a space transportation network connected by mass transit lines between major space hubs – in Earth, Lunar, and Mars orbits – will bring order to space transportation. Last mile transportation for delivering spacecraft from space hubs to their final destinations will play a critical role in this network. We are developing a kick motor which is key for realizing this last mile transportation system in space.
14:45–14:55 Lunar Night Survival as a Service
Team Name: Moonlode / Representative: Dr. Andrew Barton
More than 30 organisations around the world are developing lunar surface equipment today, aiming to fly on commercial landers in the next 1-5 years. Some of them are planning to spend over $50M on their mission, which without lunar night survival capability, will operate for less than 2 weeks on the Moon.
Moonlode's Survival product range enables small, integrated and modular solutions to support equipment to survive the lunar night. The solution would be modular and space-qualified. The Survival product range, and associated product customizations and consulting, has the potential to generate US$30M of revenue over the next 10 years, just in the beachhead market of lander-mounted equipment.
From this beachhead, Moonlode will expand into the much bigger bigger markets for infrastructure on the Moon.
14:55–15:05 Development of an ocean observation system for efficient exploration of marine resources
Team Name: MizLinx / Representative: Ms. Naho Yashiro
We will develop an ocean observation system to improve the efficiency of marine resource exploration. Marine resources can be divided into fishery resources and seabed resources such as rare metals. Currently we are developing a system to solve the problem of the fishery industry to realize a sustainable fishery. In the future, our goal is to create a marine data platform service that can be used in all maritime industries, including the exploration of seabed resources.
15:15–15:25 Static Electricity Detection Service in Space
Representative: Nano Q / Representative: Mr. Yuji Ota
Preventing electrostatic damage to satellites is essential for advancing into the mid-orbit zone and for operating a large number of satellites. We propose a service to detect static electricity, which has been a problematic cause of unpredictable accidents in space development for half a century. Using silicon optical technology, it‘s possible to develop an electrostatic detection sensor that can be used safely in space. The company will sell static electricity detection modules to the space industry, which is struggling to deal with static electricity. We will start our business in the space field and expand it to the ground field.
15:25–15:35 Suijin - Water Quality Measurement from Space
Team Name: Oceo Water Private Limited / Representative: Mr. Vikram Gulecha
Suijin provides satellite-based hydrological analysis for remote water quality monitoring for lake, ponds and other open water bodies. Unlike conventional costly and time-consuming sample collection and IoT based point measurement methods used in lake water quality analysis, our services can help detect, predict and forecast productivity of lakes at a high rate of precision without physically being present on the field.
15:35–15:45 EcoSpace : IOT Satellite the Wildfire Early Warning Detection Systems
Team Name: EcoSpace / Representative: Ms. Kanchanit Thumrongboonkate
EcoSpace provide the wildfire early warning system detection by leverage the IOT Satellite communication in non-internet coverage area example forest. By the combination of ground sensors and IOT satellite, we can provide the early stage of wildfire monitoring. EcoSpace's Prototypes was successfully tested with IOT Satellite of the University of Tokyo during Oct 2020 to Mar 2021.
15:45–15:55 ChipSpace
Team Name: ChipSpace / Representative: Ms. Maria Victoria Alonsoperez
ChipSpace is a platform that correlates data from Chipsafer's terrestrial sensors with purchased Axelspace satellite imagery in order to assist livestock farmers increase their yield by making better use of the resources they have, such as land and water, while also contributing to regenerative farming. More precisely, this combined Chipsafer and satellite data can help farmers: detect pasture quality/ degradation early on; improve their management at the farm level; and achieve timely selection of rotation areas for better pasture management. In a latter phase, this data can additionally be used to delaminate grazing areas and assess if farms are emitting or sequestering carbon.
16:05–16:15 Orbit Transport Service and Repair Service
Team Name: MiNi-D / Representative: Mr. Ken Kawasaki
We will provide a transport service of geosynchronous satellite using a transport machine between near-Earth orbit (low earth orbit and a stationary orbit). We also transport geosynchronous satellite to the ISS and provide repair services using the same transport machines. Out main product is transport service, and provide the repair service as a selectable option when ordering the transport service.
16:15–16:25 Solid Knitting Machine: A Novel 3D Printing Technique Which Makes Physical Objects Updatable
Team Name: Solidknit / Representative: Mr. Yuichi Hirose
We enable manufacturing and recycling in space by developing a Solid Knitting Machine, a novel 3D printing technique using knitting. Solid knitting is our unique method to knit solid and dense objects. Thanks to the nature of knitting, the machine can make it possible to "unwind a chair to reknit it into a desk," which we call "update of physical objects." Since it needs tremendous costs to deliver objects to space, the high recyclability of our technology is drastically advantageous.
16:25–16:35 Energy Orbit
Team Name: Entropy Research & Development / Representative: Mr. Aditya Baraskar
Power generation and management perform a substantial role in the satellite industry. The increasing annual number of satellites in Low Earth orbit will drastically heighten the need for continuous power. Currently, satellites implement a traditional method for power generation using the solar panel and radioisotope generator (RTG) with battery storage capacity. Such a system increases the weight, cost, and valuable space. And it can be lower by 15-25% by introducing Energy orbit (E-orbit), which is the concept of laser power transmission to customer satellites in LEO with 1600 Energy Satellite (E-Sat). E-Sat will also provide multiple services like energy transfer, orbit transfer, and de-orbiting to LEO-based satellites. Hence, customers will save a lot of money after accessing services from E-Orbit and generate new economic value with space sustainability.
16:35–16:45 Software as a Service for satellite collision avoidance with space situational awareness by using star trackers
Team Name: Star Signal Solutions / Representative: Mr. Akihiro Iwaki
This is a satellite operation software as-a-service for national governments and private businesses that are overburdened with satellite collision avoidance due to unclear space conditions. By using the onboard star tracker as space environmental observation device, a highly accurate and extensive space situation monitoring network can be established in orbit at very low cost. By providing appropriate and accurate collision avoidance information to satellite operators, we will streamline satellite collision avoidance operations, which are irregular and inefficient risk response activities, and protect the space environment.

Other details will be posted on this page as soon as they are determined.
