New ESA BIC Bavaria incubatee SPiN: Taking plug & play technology into space

Warm welcome to the new startup of ESA BIC Bavaria SPiN which is specialised in satellite hardware development and introducing technologies of non-space sectors to the space sector. The three founders are developing a Multipurpose Adapter Generic Interface Connector, connecting any subsystem to any satellite platform by using the plug and play concept without installing drivers or programming the main software. This universal adapter for automatic satellite integration shortens the integration time of the satellite and thus decreases the costs of the whole process.

SPiN is experiencing incubation at the ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria in Oberpfaffenhofen for eighteen months. Are you interested in becoming part of our big entrepreneurial network? Then have a closer look to the ESA BIC Bavaria programme.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defence and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.

ESA BIC Bavaria has four selection rounds each year. The next application deadline for the incubation programme is 29 August 2016. Apply now for ESA BIC Bavaria
