The problem

On Earth, The 4th Industrial Revolution is described by the blurring of boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. What that means is that fundamental shifts are taking place in how the global production and supply network operates, through ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern technology, large-scale machine-to-machine communication (M2M), and the internet of things (IoT). While in theory, everything sounds great, interoperability has been and will be highly challenging. Standardization is impossible to achieve due to the large number of devices, data transfer protocols, manufacturers' capabilities, and legislation.

In Space, the 1st Space Revolution is just taking shape, and large space agencies, multimillion-dollar budgets, and big satellite missions have given way to private companies, universities, and research centers, smaller budgets, and small satellites -- this NewSpace Era is "democratizing" access to space, where the interoperability challenges are multiplied by new off-planet constraints: distance, cosmic radiation, cost to put devices in orbit, resilience, security, and solar flares.

The vast number of protocols, devices, and platforms are proving to be a major entry barrier in the ecosystem, for companies, that spend their time and money assessing them, in hopes of choosing a solution that is both useful to their use case, compatible with devices, and time-proof.

The solution

We are accelerating the democratizing of the space industry by building a cloud platform that aggregates IoT platform's protocol status in real-time, contains technical audits and tutorials for their products as well as a knowledge base for protocols and devices based on the use cases they are put in.

We are offering the following services:

- Companies/protocols/devices database;

- No-code solution for choosing protocols/devices directly on the platform using our own matching algorithm;

- Technical audits provided by testing farms with common devices as a B2B service for companies;

- Tutorials based on real-world use cases and devices promoting the company's services;

- Assessment of needs and certification assistance for IoT devices;
