Spime-powered autonomous systems

::: news :::

We are proud to announce that BaseN is one of the four selected companies taking part in the cohort initiated by ASPIRE WITH ESA, the purpose-driven acceleration initiative of ESA Space Solutions.

The cohort, consisting of BaseN, Sensonomic, EZ Lab and Kermat, targets Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to achieve a better and more sustainable future focusing on:

  • Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Sustainable Cities & Communities
  • Responsible Consumption and Production

BaseN Spime Enablement Services (SES) Architecture is designed to host millions of spimes (next generation digital twins) of smart objects like rovers, probes and drones. The SES architecture is sustainable due to its reusability for other autonomous systems, e.g. in agriculture. BaseN has a line of industrial-grade data collection agents (Spime Enabler 2 and 3) which can be deployed in even the harshest conditions.

With SES, manufacturers get a ready framework to easily create spimes and digital twins for their devices and track the entire lifecycle, creating a sustainable and reusable SES platform for space vehicles and other industries in need of autonomous systems.
