In 2020 Neuraspace was founded with one purpose: fighting space debris with AI and enabling a safe and autonomous space traffic. Today, just one year and a half later, we are significantly closer to achieving our vision of a vibrant Circular Economy in Space. Our product is an end-to-end automated space traffic management solution built on three key pillars enabling higher accuracy in detecting high-risk collisions and reducing human intervention by up to 75%: Data Fusion; Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; and Manoeuvring Automation. Our customers: satellite operators, insurance companies, regulators and policy makers. Neuraspace is a global startup from day one, headquartered in Coimbra, with offices in Lisbon and Munich. Neuraspace raised €2.5m from Armilar Venture Partners in February 2022 and recently received approval for the acquisition of radars for space surveillance and tracking. With the space economy poised to grow from $300 billion to $1 trillion in the coming years, the system developed by Neuraspace is a cornerstone to secure this growth.
