Alb Radmanufaktur GmbH

The start-up Alb Radmanufaktur GmbH has been part of ESA BIC Baden-Württemberg since the end of January 2020. The team around Caroline and Ulrich Füllemann develops a trike that is ergonomic and tilts with the body in the corners and adapts to it. In addition, it has an electric drive and is therefore addressed to all age groups. The use of GNSS offers various additional functions – it serves as safety and theft protection, as an emergency and motivation system and as an energy optimizer for the electric drive to support the cyclist.

Blackpin GmbH

The start-up Blackpin GmbH has been Incubatee at the ESA BIC location in Reutlingen since May 2020. The Aalen-based company is developing an encrypted messenger app with integrated location function, which allows information to be sent in a data-protected manner. The app is primarily intended for the business sector, where the encrypted transmission of information is essential.

AR Experts GmbH

The company AR Experts GmbH was also successfully incorporated on 18 March 2020. The start-up realizes augmented reality solutions for companies to be able to map processes and work steps on production machines with smart devices. This allows employees to have digital access to the required information about the work process on site and allows them to store company knowledge in a decentralised manner. Employee training and further education measures can also be carried out easily and easily on the smart devices.

The start-up was also included in the selection round on March 18, 2020. Ingmar Wolff’s team analyses the soil moisture of agricultural land using Sentinel 1 and 2 satellite data. Their high-precision analysis reaches up to a resolution of 10m. This enables them to make predictions about the state of the arable land and the plants growing on it, and what measures need to be taken.

Since 15 June 2020, the startup ConstellR has been part of ESA BIC at the site in Friedrichshafen, Baden-Württemberg. The company visualizes high-resolution temperature data based on existing satellite images and computer simulations. Remote sensing data in thermal infrared (TIR) makes an important contribution to agricultural information management. The estimation of evapotranspiration, which is possible by TIR observations, describes the loss of water to the atmosphere. It is composed of evaporation, which indicates the moisture content of the upper soil layers, and the transpiration of plants, which is closely related to the water content in the deeper root layer.

Asvin GmbH

Since 15 December 2020, the Stuttgart-based startup Asvin GmbH has been part of the ESA BIC Baden-Württemberg. The founders support IoT operators in recording and controlling devices, providing a solution for managing updates and monitoring the cybersecurity status over the entire lifecycle of devices. Confidential Company knowledge can thus be protected against cyber-attacks.

DeepCare GmbH

The startup DeepCare GmbH from Stuttgart has been part of the ESA BIC Baden-Württemberg since February 5, 2021. At the Reutlingen site, the company led by Dr. Milad Geravand and Simon Fiechtner is developing a digital health assistant that ensures that the user is in the right sitting position and moves regularly in the office or home office. Using a lidar sensor, the upper body of the user is displayed on a small screen and the 3D depth information is analyzed using artificial intelligence to derive optimal recommendations for action.


WoodKrew has also been part of ESA BIC Baden-Württemberg since 16 February 2021. Also at the Reutlingen site, the startup is developing an application in the field of forest monitoring to give forest owners precise statements about the nature and condition of their forests. By means of an offshell antenna, the predictions can be made centimetre-accurate, even if there is no reception through the leaf cover.

Black Engine Aerospace GmbH

Since 15 February 2021, Black Engine Aerospace has also been part of ESA BIC in Baden-Württemberg. The company around the two founders Markus Ortelt and Oliver Thirsty dive deep into space development – with the development of a new rocket propulsion using ceramic composites, they make rocket engines cheaper, safer and more fatigue-resistant. They also focus on sustainability, because the engines should be reusable.


The startup Waldstolz is part of the ESA BIC Baden-Württemberg since July 15, 2021. The two founders Fabian Popp and Tobias Jäger are developing a platform to protect local forests from pests. Using satellite data, predictions are made for agriculture as to which trees in the forest are infested and therefore need to be cut down.

Sentrisense GmbH

The startup Sentrisense GmbH around founder Sebastian Cerone has been part of the ESA BIC Baden-Württemberg at the Reutlingen site since August 3, 2021.
