inventor: FBRHadrian X is an intelligent construction robot to be mounted on vehicles and transport equipments like truck, ship, crane, and is optimized by Fastbrick Wall System to pull up a brick wall of a building with brick elements much lighter, larger and mechanically stronger than standard brick, in just two days. The construction process is assisted by a special adhesive for fixing building blocks together in about 45 minutes.
The operation of Hadrian X construction robot is based on the so-called Dynamic Stabilization Technology (DST); a technological solution to provide precise positioning over long distances even under deflecting environmental influences (wind, vibration, ...), too.
inventor: Mynaric Inc.
Aim: instead of high cost fiber optic cables as well as the high cost radio frequency communications, to develop space and aeronautical laser communication network spanning long distances (<> space <> stratosphere <> earth <>) with high-speed data traffic.
Solution: development of miniaturized, compact laser terminals to deploy them on satellites, drones, airplanes for bridging very long distances by high-speed free data traffic among them and also, to provide broadband internet access at any spot on Earth.
Personal Protection System
inventor: Nima Labs, Inc.
Nima Peanut Sensor is a portable small
device for on-site detection of food ingredients (e.g. allergens, food contaminants ...).
The small device comprises of three parts:
* disposable capsule for receiving and handling the test sample,
* the sensor itself,
* Nima application paired to the sensor to display test result.
Food protein (e.g. non-hydrolysed and non-fermented gluten) can be detected in a pea-sized (non-alcoholic) sample in about 3 minutes.
Principle of the detection: the disposable test capsule hosts the test strip preloaded with specific antibody and accepts the food sample under study.
After mechanical and/or chemical grinding of the food sample in the capsule, the strip reacts with the already accessible food protein.
The reaction result is processed by the sensor electronics and then made visible by Nima application paired to the sensor.
The system is open to continuous development according to protein components to be detected (pool of specific antibodies).

Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) DNA-based Legionella Test
Beyond the 14-day microbiological gold
standard culture method, a DNA-based qPCR
method was developed for the one-day
molecular detection of Legionella.
Thus, ISO / TS 12869: 2019 standard
was elaborated for the detection of
Legionella spp. and for the detection
and quantification of Legionella pneumophila
to support microbiological analyses and certifications of
industrial, natural, artificial and communal waters.
