MinWave team is glad to participate and exhibit at the sixth edition of Europe’s largest B2B event for the space industry in Bremen, the city of space. The Space Expo Tech is Europe’s marketplace for space business, technology, and innovation and draws the attendance of thousands of industry leaders, decision-makers, engineers, specifiers, and buyers to meet suppliers, manufacturers, and integrators spanning the entire space supply chain. MinWave presented new products and recent developments in the design and fabrication of metamaterial RF front-end devices
MinWave team attended in European Space Agency (ESA) Industry Space Days (ISD) and met the space community at ESA/ESTEC (Noordwijk, The Netherlands) on 28 – 29 September 2022. The ISD was organised by the SME Office in the ESA Commercialisation Department to foster cooperation between different actors in the entire space sector. We had several B2B meetings and during exhibition we showcase MinWave products. MinWave then participated in ESA space passive component day at ESTEC ESA in October 11-14 2022. Aim of the SPCD symposium was to promote the discussion of recent developments and trends and to encourage the exchange of technical expertise and information covering a broad range of EEE passive components for space applications.
MinWave Technologies won Venture Kick’s first stage of financial and entrepreneurial support . We presented to a Venture Kick jury on March 29th 2022 and won 10kCHF for the first phase, where Minwave has a 50 percent chance of selection for the next stage. Venture Kick stands for much more than the money. It offers a structured entrepreneurial path to build a winning venture.
We then won win Venture Kick’s second stage of financial and entrepreneurial support in June 2022. We got 40,000 CHF in this stage and now we are eligible to participate in third round in Nov 2022.
MinWave CTO, Dr. Maliheh Khatibi, participated in 16th European Conference on Antenna and propagation (EUCAP ) in Madrid in March 2022 and then European microwave week (EUMW ) in London in April 2022. She presented our recent developments on bent meta-filters and ka-band filters to discuss MinWave capabilities on miniaturization of microwave filters for space and telecommunications.
One of our innovative method for creating miniaturize waveguide filters based on locally resonant metamaterials (LRMs) was published in the prestigious journal of Physical Review Applied in August 2021. The ultrasmall metamaterial filters (metafilters) are utilizing a subwavelength (sub-λ) guiding mechanism in evanescent hollow waveguides, loaded with small resonant elements. Also, we suggested a subwavelength technique, which we refer to as a metaport, to match the small filters to standard interfaces.
ESABIC is a nationwide initiative powered by the European Space Agency (ESA) and one of the world’s leading universities: ETH Zurich. The incubator offers extensive support packages (technical, business and financial support plus networking and community building) to startups that exploit technologies related to space for application on earth or technologies from earth adapted for usage in space. This relates to application fields such as navigation and positioning, telecommunication, cybersecurity, earth observation, materials & processes, space transportation & logistics or robotics. MinWave got 200kCHF financial supports and 80hours technical supports, while it is connected to ESABIC partners
