AutonomIQ Autonomous Automation
AutonomIQ offers an autonomous automation solution that leverages the latest in ML, AI and auto-scaling to self-code, self-scale and self-heal. The AutonomIQ platform will automatically generate accurate and executable automation code from business user intentions expressed in human language. The platform also monitors for – and reacts to – application and intent changes automatically and self-heals the automation code to keep it working. Now, you can deliver automation at the "Pace Needed for Space" with the resilience to react to change, without breaking your automation, creating more backlog or falling behind.

Firehawk Aerospace 3D Ultra Hybrid Engine
Firehawk Aerospace is making a new form of advanced chemical rocket engine for space exploration, space commerce and the U.S. Department of Defense. Unlike current liquid-fueled rockets, which are very expensive to fuel and can explode, Firehawk Aerospace uses patented and proprietary engine fuel grains, which are 3D printed from a proprietary polymeric/metal fuel formulation. Firehawk engines will not detonate. They only have 12 parts. They are environmentally benign and can be custom designed at any thrust level in four to six months rather than the industry standard of five to seven years.

Visible Light Communication
LVX System invented and patented lights that communicate via photons. It's called Visible Light Communication (VLC), also known as Li-Fi. VLC enables energy-efficient and cost-effective electronic devices, such as photodiodes and LEDs, to send and receive data by modulating the same photons that illuminate. VLC is projected to replace RF as the communication medium of choice because it is virtually un-hackable and un-jammable as well as being fast and secure. LVX doesn't sell lights; LVX sells light with embedded data as a service. LVX owns 53 technology and service model patents with limitless Earth and Space applications.

Maclec Technical Project Laboratory Pvt Ltd.
The world needs an alternative and steady source for a stable, eco-friendly, sustainable, reliable and cost-effective renewable energy supply. MACLEC offers a solution, "SHK Turbines." These turbines are a scalable, replicable, relocatable and cost-effective solution for renewable hydropower generation. The technology harnesses the kinetic energy available in the flow and velocity of a variety of water bodies such as rivers, canals, creeks, tidal rivers, wastewater drains, and sewage canals without the need and associated costs of implementing major new major civil structures such as dams, reservoirs, penstocks and diversions. With less than $1500/kW capital expenditures (CAPEX) and less than $0.025/kWh Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE), SHK Turbines are the best alternative for millions of off-grid and grid-connected people.

Nanoprecise Sci Corporation
Nanoprecise has created a patent-pending hardware and software solution that combines physics, material science, and data analytics to diagnose issues with physical assets such as machinery and predicts the "Remaining Time to Failure." It's the only standalone sensor that extracts revolutions per minute (RPM), vibration, sound, temperature and humidity information all together. The AI-powered software analyzes data from various sensing elements and achieves anomaly detection, fault identification and remaining time to failure.

Ommo Technologies Inc.
OMMO's Orbit is the world's first permanent magnet-based 6DOF tracking system that combines submillimeter precision with unrivaled mobility and versatility. Already the most reliable and resilient position tracking system designed for the medical market, Orbit's robust performance is now ready to be customized for any application, both in space and on Earth.
Genetically Engineering Spirulina Algae
Spira’s genetically engineered algae can be used as a bioproduction platform on other planets. Using spirulina, Spira can produce a large amount of useful protein in a tiny amount of space for limited resources. This supply of protein can be used for food, medicine and building materials. Spira grows spirulina algae in both outdoor ponds and bioreactor systems, enabling easy implementation in a space colony. They have developed tools to engineer, grow, and process spirulina to solve any resource constraints a space colony may have. Spira's technology enables the replacement of petroleum and animal compounds in the supply chain for major industrial clients using a network of global algae farms.
