Rocket’s winning proposal, called SpaceACME, allows military operators to visualise system status, orbits, and predicted events in 4D. The mission-critical tool will aid personnel in decision making by creating maneuver option scenarios for satellites and other spacecraft.
“We see tremendous potential in our 4D visualization solution and are thrilled to have the opportunity to demonstrate its capability in a military environment,” said Michal-Anne Rogondino, founder & CEO of Rocket Communications. “The first International Space Pitch Day unearthed some remarkable innovation and we are grateful to be among such talented company.”
Dubbed a “Shark Tank” style opportunity, the event let start-up entrepreneurs from all over the globe pitch their innovations live (virtually) to a joint UK-US panel of high ranking military decision makers. The first-of-its-kind event grew from a UK and USA partnership called the Allied Defence Accelerator. Military organizations helping to fund and fast track innovation include Dstl, DASA, Royal Air Force, UK Strategic Command, US Air Force, US Space Force, and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
