AS A SERVICE
SPiN enables manufacturers to integrate components and subsystems efficiently and cheaply in a modular concept, empowering satellite manufacturers to spend high-value time and money where it counts: pursuing new ventures.
SPiN Secures €1.6M Seed Funding to Simplify Space Manufacturing
Frascati, Italy, 15 January 2024 – Space Product and Innovation S.r.l (SPiN), a leading provider of innovative modular space manufacturing solutions, announced today the successful closure of a €1.63 million seed funding round led by Galaxia, the Italian Technology Transfer Hub on Aerospace powered by CDP Venture Capital, together with Obloo Ventures, with participation from Scientifica Venture Capital and Innova Venture. This significant investment will propel SPiN's mission to revolutionize space manufacturing and democratize access to space.
WHO WE ARE
SPiN is a leading provider of modularity solutions for the space sector, offering satellite integration solutions to transform satellites into modular systems: a service to design satellites in a flexible concept using model-based system engineering methodology and a plug-and-play adapter, the MA61C intelligent data node. Founded in 2015, after winning first prize at Startup Weekend Space in Bremen, we offer intelligent, innovative services to space ventures worldwide today.
WHAT WE OFFER
SPiN offers a satellite integration solution to transform satellites into modular systems.
A service to design satellites in a flexible concept using model-based system engineering methodology and a plug-and-play adapter, the MA61C intelligent data node.
SPiN provides satellite design services to lower prices and accelerate missions lead times of our customers. SPiN's universal adapter MA61C, enable access to a wider range of suppliers. The service can include avionics, software architecture, assembly, integration and testing.
SPIN's engineers are able to integrate satellite components at a fraction of the time, speeding up the spacecraft manufacturing and its launch to market. Thanks to the universal adapter MA61C SPiN offers effortless and seamless software integration. ,
We integrate satellite components seamlessy and without user intervention thanks to MA61C, an intelligent data node adapter that can automatically recognize and integrate new devices without the need to choose a standard
revolutionising satellite manufacturing with plug and play
Historically, satellite components and subsystems were highly customized, with no standardized assembly. With our experience and innovative technology, we strive to simplify satellite assembly, testing and integration processes and increase space ventures profitability. Founded in 2015, SPIN with its incredible team have worked tirelessly to bring the company to the forefront of the industry. We will continue to work relentlessly to democratize access to space by eliminating the hassle of standards compatibility and providing smart, affordable for companies of all sizes.
SPiN works with industry, space agencies, research institutions and international organisations across the globe to develop a sustainable and cost efficient way to assemble sateliites.
The Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) is the first close loop, stand alone system for small satellite based on a modular design. The modular ADCS is based on the MA61C smallsat and modular ADCS software that suits a wide range of missions, including Earth Observation (EO), Telecommunications and space transportation (space tugs). It is designed with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA) and currently reached TRL 5.
SPIN - 1
SPiN-1is a cubesat in orbit demo mission to demonstrate in-orbit reconfiguration and the benefits of modular satellite assembly with off-the-shelf components through MA61C, SPiN’s universal adapter. The satellite will be as large as 1U, reach an altitude between 300-500Km and it will be operational for 2 months.
The mission was launched on May 25 and it is carried out in partnership with TelespazioVega, AAC Clyde Space, CrystalSpace, NewSpace Systems and the TU München, who provided essential hardware and software to the mission.
What They’re Saying
“ 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! ”
