Creotech Instruments is a leading Polish manufacturer of satellite systems and components as well as specialized electronics and equipment for global applications, including quantum computers. The company provides solutions to the most modern and technologically advanced research institutions in the world, i.e. European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN in Geneva, GSI Heavy Ion Research Institute or DESY Research Centre in Germany. One of the most important projects currently implemented by the company is the HyperSat satellite platform, which places the company among a dozen or so companies in the world capable of offering microsatellites and entire microsatellite constellations.
Creotech Instruments implements projects for the space sector. Some of the most interesting are the search for traces of life on Mars, the study of the corona of the sun, mysterious flares of gamma radiation in the high layers of the Earth's atmosphere, or tracking potentially dangerous so-called "space junk" circulating around our planet. The company has its own electronics manufacturing facilities and intelligence facilities for small satellites.
Ever since the conquest of space became possible, it has been systematically littered with defunct satellites, remains of spacecraft and parts of launchers. According to the European Space Agency (ESA), there are more than 900 000 objects in space ranging in size from one to ten centimetres, and around 128 million ranging in size from one millimetre to one centimetre. Any collision with a working satellite can terminate its mission or cause massive damage to its subsystems.
PIAP Space specialises in solutions for space robotics. The company constructs robotic arms, grippers and mobile robots for servicing satellites in orbit and exploring celestial bodies (Mars and the Moon), and also designs equipment for integrating and testing satellites (MGSE). PIAP Space carries out contracts for the European Space Agency, European space systems integrators and participates in projects carried out within the European strategic cluster of space robotics PERASPERA.
