How We Started

Space Mining Technologies founders met each other at InnoSpace Startup Weekend in 2017. Already back then we shared the desire to make real the vision of commercial and affordable space resources utilization. We initiated the development of lunar in-situ resources utilization technologies: microwaved-based water extraction from lunar regolith and propellant production. Towards that end, Technology Readiness Levels 1 and 2 were achieved. Also, working toward TRL3, a first proof-of-concept demonstrator was designed, built and showcased at the Moon Village Workshop at the International Space University.

Highly skilled engineers later joined the founding team which expanded our capability in Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering. Today, the team is multidisciplinary with experience from past positions held at space agencies, large space systems integrators, and background in the following area:

  • Space Systems Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • Machine Learning & Deep Learning
  • In-Situ Space Resources Utilization
  • Rocket propulsion 
  • ESA and commercial space projects (qualification, acceptance, AIT, operations, of flight hardware and software)
