2020 Seraphim SpaceTech Sector Map representing the most promising start-ups in the domain30th January 2020
We segment the Space Tech ecosystem into the following 7 categories:
Build - Building and selling satellites and drones. We look at both the hardware (sub-systems, complete platforms and novel sensors) and software (i.e. mission control, cybersecurity). New and novel materials that can make platforms lighter, cheaper and more efficient.
Launch - Building and launching rockets, offering launch aggregation and services. We also consider autonomous flight such as drone delivery.
Data – Satellite constellations, high altitude pseudo satellite (HAPS) platforms and drones collecting and communicating proprietary data, across the three main applications of earth observation, communications and navigation.
Downlink – Technologies facilitating the transmission and storage of data from space and aerial platforms back down to earth. This includes phased-array antennas, laser communications, inter-satellite data relay systems, quantum security, data storage, and ground stations.
Analyse – Changing low level processed data into valuable insights, offering a subscription service to enterprise customers. Includes the analysis of data from space and aerial platforms using machine learning techniques.
Product - Packaging of different data streams (fusing space and terrestrial sources), tailored to specific use cases in discrete verticals. This includes data platforms such as space and drone traffic management, mapping platforms and precision location & tracking.
Beyond Earth – Technologies and infrastructure to enable in-space services for satellites and launchers, furthering space exploration efforts and research in microgravity environments.
