ZipperMast developing new version for nuclear facility inspection

The demanding conditions under which inspections are performed in nuclear environments (slight, light-weight, high construction hight, ) require new types and specifications of masts that go beyond the standardized telescope masts currently available. ZipperMast facilitates the integration of sensors and actuators and supports the processing, encryption, and communication of the collected data. ZipperMast has thus finalized its development of ZM 40, particularly in connection with the technically demanding challenges involved in integrated coating technologies from space and an increased number of interfaces. more

ZIPPERMAST GmbH is the ideal company to supply the market for emergency services, security and safety-critical industry with the lightweight, highly robust, and reliable mast system ZIPPERMAST (which includes technology adopted from the company's US inventor). Its objective is to continue the system's development in order to access more market segments than can be reached with its current design.

ZIPPERMAST's product offerings for enhancing mission effectiveness and fielding equipment solutions are all focused on maximising human performance and safety.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
Zippermast is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria from May 2014 to April 2016. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That doesn't 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 Defense 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.
