Open Cosmos announces development of MANTIS Earth Observation satellite
On the occasion of the Earth Observation Phi-Week at the European Space Agency (ESA) centre in Frascati this week, a unique consortium of specialised space companies announces the development of a new Earth Observation satellite called ‘MANTIS’. This name stands as an acronym for ‘Mission and Agile Nanosatellite for Terrestrial Imagery Services’. MANTIS will be a demonstration mission to jointly develop, build, launch and operate an innovative nanosatellite platform, flying a high resolution Earth Observation camera.

IEEC 4DCube third winner of the Open Cosmos, ESA Business Applications and ESA Space Solutions “Call to Orbit” competition
The third winner of the Call to Orbit competition is a space debris mapping project by the Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia (IEEC). The team of 4DCube are proposing an unprecedented approach to detect and track small-sized and composite debris, which pose a serious risk for orbiting spacecraft. These small pieces of space junk are not being detected by other debris-associated projects, while at the same time small debris is considered a major concern, due to their large number and their often significant orbital velocities.
Delox becomes second winner of the Open Cosmos, ESA Business Applications and ESA Space Solutions “Call to Orbit” competition
Born in the Science Faculty of the University of Lisbon (FCUL) in Portugal in June 2018, Delox was created as a spin-off startup company, on top of more than seven years of research. Delox designs and develops a new generation of bio-decontamination devices, thought to fight all microorganisms, based on new proprietary technology. Bio-decontamination is critically important for health care services on Earth, but equally for space applications, especially in the light of planetary protection.
