Space tech coming to Eindhoven, HighTechXL collaborates with ESA

Feb 11, 2020

HighTechXL , the Netherlands’ only deep-tech venture-building program powered by the Eindhoven Startup Alliance, is teaming up with yet another global research center to take ESA technology to market. Starting in February, HighTechXL will begin building new ventures around ESA technology in a long-term partnership. HighTechXL has a track record of technology transfer successes, creating companies that are taking deep-tech from CERN and other global research centers to market.

Would you dare to create the office space of tomorrow? Show Less The first two ESA technologies that will enter the HighTechXL program include: ESA’s patented optical chip gyroscope: Researchers at Politecnico di Bari under ESA contract have developed a photonic gyroscope that replaces mechanical parts with an optical gyroscope, based on waveguide-based ring resonators. HighTechXL teams will tackle integrating this new stabilizing technology into a photonic chip to create an incredibly small, incredibly accurate sensor. The new technology has potential applications in healthcare , aviation and the semiconductor industry. The new technology has potential applications in advanced healthcare systems and inertial navigation for aviation. • ESA’s patented hollow waveguide array image technology corrects lens distortion known as image degradation. Curved lenses have a curved focal plane, which means the edges of images are fuzzy and out of focus even though the center is sharp. For deep-space mapping, ESA has created technology that eliminates this light curvature aberration. ESA’s system uses hollow waveguide arrays to focus light on the edges of images. The arrays are lightweight and simple when compared to complex multiple lens configurations, yet surprisingly robust. This technology is only made possible by recent advances in microfabrication technologies. Though developed for ESA satellite mapping projects, the system has potential uses in everything from healthcare diagnostic equipment to digital entertainment. By the terms of the collaboration, HighTechXL will organize hackathons three times each year where new technologies from ESA will be proposed with the aim of finding motivated teams willing to build businesses around them. These out-of-this-world technologies will join other futuristic projects such as using structured laser beam technology in 5G and particle beam accelerators to detect illicit drugs as HighTechXL teams tackle deep tech from the world’s most advanced research centers. Founded in 2015, HighTechXL is the Netherlands’ premier deep tech accelerator. HighTechXL is an initiative of the Eindhoven Startup Alliance with ASML, Philips, NTS Group, High Tech Campus Eindhoven, ABN AMRO, Brabantse Ontwikkelings Maatschappij (BOM) and EY/HVG as its founding members. On the other hand, ESA is an intergovernmental organisation, created in 1975, with the mission to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space delivers benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world. ESA has 22 Member States: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Slovenia is an Associate Member. Main image credit: HighTechXL
