Simplify Space Manufacturing
SPiN offers the MA61C, a universal adapter to transform incompatible off-the-shelf components to plug-and-play for satellite manufacturers.
We accelerate the technology cycle by enabling faster integration through the adapter, to rapidly replenish depleted satellite systems.
Our adapter connects to most off-the-shelf components, delivering costs reductions on average of 50% on design, and 30% on production, and removing a year from integration time.
Multipurpose Adapter Generic Interface Connector
MA61C Is the first satellite subsystem adapter with plug-and-play functionality that allows connecting any satellite subsystem with the main on board computer without installing any additional software or adapting hardware connectors. It adapts and integrates existing standard connectors and software.
MA61C supports subsystems electronic datasheets and space interfaces (SpW, CAN, UART, 1553B, I2C, SPI)
Easy and quick connectivity tool to any digital subsystem through commonly used space interfaces. It connects to a laptop via USB connection to monitor and command through an intuitive Graphic User Interface.
Plug and play remote data node that connects between the satellite onboard computer and subsystem through existing interface. The data nodes allow fast and smart integration, including diagnostic and monitoring functions.
The MA61C CubeSat automatically adapts between communication interface and protocol standards of different suppliers to the unique standard of the onboard software. This simplifies the communication between the onboard software of the CubeSat and its subsystems such as AOCS sensors and actuators, communication, power and payload.
Space Products and Innovation UG is a company whose goal is to spin in technology and concepts from outside the aerospace industry.
Currenty, the team is focusing on a multi-purpose adapter that applies the plug and play concept to satellite manufacturing and sub-system integration.
The adapter shall include hardware and software that connects existing satellite sub-system connectors and integrates their software without the need to install additional drivers, saving time in spacecraft design and manufacturing.
SPIn achievements so far include winning the first prize at INNOSpace Masters ESA BIC Challenge 2016 and Startup Weekend Space in Bremen 2015.
SPiN is also listed as top 70 Startups at Pioneers Festival 2016.

“ The electrical interfaces of DSI's standard products have to be usually customized depending on the requirements from customer to another. The resulting re-design efforts are usually not negligible. A product like MA61C adapter would allow direct re-use of DSI products in different scenarios with minor changes, hence optimizing re-use costs! ”
