The space incubator ESA-BIC Sweden has picked four new companies – Linköping Cystells, Flying Pulse from Trollhättan, and Sol-ionics and Wilda Tracking from Luleå to enter their incubator.
More than 5,000 Swedes are affected annually by cardiac arrest outside the hospital environment. Only 500 of these survive. Flypulse has developed a drunker system that delivers cardiac arrestors to the victims. The system is used in conjunction with established rescue systems to increase the chances of survival.
Flypulse is one of four new companies now adopted to ESA BIC Sweden, which has fourteen start-ups in the incubator.
– It’s a big boost for us. We will get expert advice and a starting capital that will enable us to meet the major needs now, said Sebastian Wallman, founder of
In addition to Flypulse, Wilda Tracking, Cystellar and Sol-ionics have also been adopted. Wilda tracking has developed a system that, with the help of space technology, will improve the safety of firefighters, especially in forest fires.
– ESA BIC Sweden gives us unique opportunities, we get technical skills, money and networks. We can hardly get better conditions to reach the market. The future feels bright, said Daniel Nilsson, CEO of Wilda Tracking.
The startups adopted for the space incubator will receive 500.000 SEK each for development. The investment aims at increasing the commercial use of positioning technology, satellite data and / or patents developed through the European Space Agency, ESA. But even startups with solutions that can be used for space purposes are prioritized. In addition, the companies receive business and technical advice for up to two years’ time through the industry partners included in ESA BIC Sweden.
ESA BIC Sweden is a national space incubator for companies that utilize existing technology from the space industry and / or develop new technologies and solutions to the space industry.
Facts about the companies:
Sol-ionics AB has developed and patented new halogen-free ionic liquids for use as a space lubricant. These lubricants also have great potential for use in other industries, for example in transport, wind power and metalworking processes. Ion-based lubricants can be made electrically conductive, for example, to discharge static electricity. Sol-ionics liquids reduce maintenance requirements, as they, among other things, have multiplied operating time and reduce friction compared to the lubricants available on the market today.

Wild space tracking has developed a base station-free communication system that helps revolutionize and facilitate future rescue work in the event of major forest fires. With an innovative and robust communication technology for long distance. Wilda Tracking wants to improve and facilitate communications with and between firefighters. Today, Wilda Tracking collaborates with several rescue services in the country to test and evaluate the system.

Flypulse has developed a drone system that delivers cardiac arrestors (defibrillators) to treat cardiac arrest as soon as possible outside the hospital environment. Through the system, the ability of the victim of a cardiac arrest increases to survive through the drone being able to quickly be in place. When the signal comes from the SOS operator, the drone immediately flies to the alarm location. The Flypulse system uses both topography data and satellite data and positioning to find the fastest possible route to the distressed.
