The event can be attended by invitation only and is hosted by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), in partnership with the National Research Council of Canada’s Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP). This year’s topic is “Planning Canada’s next chapter in human space exploration: health and biomedical roles”.
Over the course of the next year, the CSA will provide multiple opportunities for Canada’s space and non-space communities (academia and industry) to propose innovative ideas for science and technologies in areas that could contribute to future human space exploration and generate benefits on earth. As part of this effort, the CSA is looking at various disciplines and fields of activity where Canada could make significant contributions including in the field of health and biomedical technologies.
“Building technology for space applications is probably the most cutting edge one could get. Learning about the challenges of human space exploration and potentially help build the technology infrastructure is an exciting prospect for Stratuscent. Naturally, we are very excited to participate in this CSA event”, CTO, Ashok Prabhu Masilamani says.
Stratuscent is a TandemLaunch portfolio company and vertical AI startup that is building a chemical sensing platform which seamlessly integrates the power of novel AI algorithms, material innovations and robust additive manufacturing technologies.
By combining NASA-patented nanocomposite sensing technology with Stratuscent’s proprietary machine learning algorithms, their AI-driven CUMULUS sensor does what no other chemical sensor can: accurately identify and quantify – in real-time – an unlimited number of chemicals in real-world environments.
“We are proud of building cutting edge bio-inspired machine learning technologies for machine olfaction: it is a unique solution”, Director of AI, Mojtaba Khomami Abadi shares.
Congratulations to the Stratuscent team!
