Start-up opens plant for satellite propulsion in Wiener Neustadt

Investor Alon Shklarek, founder Alexander Riessner and Team © enpulsion

At present, the production volume amounts to one ion engine per day, which is planned to expand to 500 such thrusters annually. The price of the thruster is competitive at EUR 30,000 per unit. The technology was developed by FOTEC, the research company of the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt. The modular approach for the thrusters is unique in the world, and a less expensive solution in the central challenge for all prominent satellite producers in building satellites”, says CEO Alexander Riessner. Enpulsion is being provided with financial support by the EU program “Horizon 2020”, as well as by seed financing of aws austria wirtschaftsservice and the Viennese investor Alon Shklarek via his company ASP. Last year Enpulsion acquired EUR 2.4 million in this manner. About EUR 600,000 is to be invested in production in the beginning.

Vienna University of Technology involved in developing a nuclear clock

A revolution is in the making. The nuclear clock is the measure of all things when it comes to precisely telling time. However, the technology has not fully matured, and nuclear clocks could potentially tick even more precisely.

How Austria Shapes Its Future with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is certainly the most powerful new technology available today. This is probably the reason why the underlying discussion is frequently driven by fear. Hollywood has also contributed to this. Half-human, half-machine mutants resembling Frankenstein and Terminator are the spectres unleased by AI. However, as is often the case, Hollywood’s fantasy has little to do with reality.
