Three new startups have moved into the Odense Robotics StartUp Hub positioned on the Danish Technological Institute in Odense. One among them is QuadSAT, a younger group with large ambitions to seriously change satellite tv for pc communication utilizing drone know-how. Right here you may meet the group – the hub’s first drone firm – and discover their imaginative and prescient for the longer term.
QuadSAT was based in March 2017 and includes of a younger, worldwide group with broad expertise inside engineering and enterprise growth. They’ve moved to Odense to be a part of the drone and robotic exercise centred round HCA Airport and the Danish Technological Institute.
Joakim Espeland is CEO, co-founder and the one with the thought behind QuadSAT. The Norwegian is a certified radio frequency engineer with 5 years of expertise throughout the maritime satellite tv for pc communications sector. He additionally has expertise with mechanics, electronics and automation.
Andrian Buchi, CTO and co-founder, is an R&D engineer with expertise inside drone applied sciences, fast prototyping, management mechanisms, physics and maths. The 2 founders met one another whereas finding out mechanical engineering at VIA Faculty, Denmark. The group additionally consists of Snorre Skeidsvoll, Gross sales & Advertising and marketing Supervisor, who’s presently finding out the combination of radio frequency know-how.
What’s their know-how?
QuadSAT is a startup growing a drone to check and calibrate satellite tv for pc communication antennae throughout the maritime, aerospace and navy sectors. The drone will act like an orbital satellite tv for pc, simulating the movement of ships, planes and different automobiles. Not like conventional take a look at strategies, the drone is designed for use on-site the place the antennae are manufactured or operated. This may make testing and calibration more cost effective. QuadSAT’s imaginative and prescient is to change into the business take a look at customary.
What’s their intention for the primary yr within the Hub?
QuadSAT’s first milestone is to develop and take a look at a prototype of a drone with built-in know-how. Then the group will develop a marketing strategy and set up a community of suppliers, develop a setup for logistics and supply.
What do they are saying concerning the Hub?
“As a group consisting completely of internationals, we’re amazed by the efforts and alternatives towards innovation and development made in Denmark, particularly across the metropolis of Odense. We’re very proud to be a part of one of many world’s greatest robotic clusters. The distinctive setting – the drone take a look at centre, growth amenities on the Danish Technological Institute and entry to skilled enterprise builders – can speed up our growth. We hope we are able to make a useful contribution to the event of drone know-how in Odense.”
