Sense 2 Beat startup
SENSE2BEAT is a seed stage direct-to-consumer digital health startup commercializing an effective and affordable cardiac arrhythmia detection. SENSE2BEAT revolutionary approach is enabled by a platform-independent A.I.–based Clinical Decision-Support System.

Vision. The company works to enhance a quality of ECG-based R-R interval measurement arrhythmia detection taking advantage of emerging innovative technologies in medical monitoring wearable and A.I research.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart failure affects 5.7 million adults in the United States, and half of those who develop heart failure die within 5 years of diagnosis costing the nation an estimated $30.7 billion each year.
SENSE2BEAT findings could provide relief to millions each year by offering patients early detection and intervention.
Cloud-based SENSE2BEAT A.I. will constantly evolve through artificial intelligence with a dedicated team feeding it new annotated and raw databases, and physicians validating its analysis, intervention and prediction. SENSE2BEAT will airdrop updated client A.I. modules via subscription-based SAAS service worldwide and offer real-time connectivity and response upon arrhythmic event detection. With our evolutionary algorithms tailored for prolonged monitoring devices, we will aim to increase arrhythmia detection rate compared to standard methods.
TSNIImash project
Space Center realized a pilot system project for the parallel design of a space constellation for TsNIImash. Within the framework of the project, a working prototype of the industry Center for parallel design on the basis of TsNIImash was created.

The aim of the work is the transfer to the modern technological platform of business processes of the early stages of development and scientific and technical expertise of space programs and industry projects.

According to statistics, up to 80% of design errors, and, accordingly, project failures, are formed in the early stages of design as part of R&D due to insufficient elaboration of system solutions for programs and projects. An effective tool to reduce the risks of such errors is the Parallel Design Centers (CPC). Skoltech is an unequivocal leader in this sphere.
Intelligent Space Robotics Laboratory realised commercial project for Deckatlon company. Autonomous mobile platform, designed to navigate in rooms with dynamic environments. This collaborative robot can conduct stocktaking procedures using RFID marks. Great features are - aI mission planning, multiple markers available (RFID, QR, etc.), up to 400 scans per hour, automated recharging, obstacle avoidance system, beacon–enabled indoor navigation, full customization to client's infrastructure.
FASIE grant
Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology jointly became a grant recipient of the FASIE !

This grant will be used to conduct one of the school competitions under the Planet Watch. The Applied Space Systems Competition is a technology competition
in astronautics, providing an opportunity for schoolchildren of grades 8-11 to study
research approach to staging space experiments, to understand
the main stages of setting up and conducting experiments, as well as, working in a team researchers to implement their own experiment.
What is Eurobot ? An amazing event gathering fun, high technology, friendship, creativity, education and passion!
Created in 1998, Eurobot is an international amateur robotics contest open to teams of young people, organised either in student projects or in independent clubs. What has to be done? To participate in the competition the team needs to design and make two autonomous robots. The robots must complete specific tasks in a minute and 30 seconds and earn maximum points. At the same time the team must solve a number of specific tasks and to complete a full cycle of development and production of the robot." For further information visit:
Space Up
SpaceUp, the international "unconference" that brings together scientists and engineers whose specialties are in space technology, kicked off to a good start at Skoltech's new campus on Saturday, May 18. This is the third year in a row that Skoltech has hosted this event and it represents another step forward in putting this institute on the academic map and making it a truly international one.

The event consisted of parallel sessions with student presentations, presentations by keynote speakers, as well as two panel-discussions towards the end of the conference.
Skoltech Space Center actively supports work with talented students at special educational venues. One of these sites is Siriu Ed Center

The purpose of the Sirius Educational Center is the early identification, development and further professional support of gifted children who have shown outstanding abilities in the fields of arts, sports, natural sciences, and who have achieved success in technical creativity.

The Skoltech team conducted several specialized shifts in satellite construction, remote sensing and robotics
Space weather
The project will contribute to the improvement of the scientific understanding, forecasting and mitigation of extreme space weather events. It is important for the ground breaking missions such as Parker Probe Plus and Solar Orbiter.The project is aimed to conduct the research in solar-terrestrial physics from close to the Sun to Earth's magnetosphere focusing on the following topics:

1. Detection of eruptive events on Sun (coronal mass ejections and accompanying solar events).
2. Forecasting of solar wind speed at Earth. 3. Forecasting of geomagnetic storms and polar aurora. 4. Solar activity forecasting. 5. Scientific and service products. In each of the subfields, the approach is research-to-operations (R2O), which brings together the forefront of research with applications, thus yielding significant benefits through the delivery of new public and commercial space-based services and development of new technologies.
Model-based systems engineering
Systems engineering is a discipline intended to support complex system developments by braking down a product into a number of relatively independent subsystems. Traditionally, management of system's structure was performed with documents. That approach has a number of drawbacks. The main goal of model-based systems engineering is the infusion of models into systems engineering processes, such as architectonic, interface specification, managing emerging systems behavior, etc. during complex products development. We leverage subsystem-level performance attributes into economical indicators of a complex system, which is essential to make informed decisions about product flexibility in changing environment, its performance and feasibility, technology infusion, interaction with other systems in early project stages. We specialize on modeling complex aerospace systems, such as satellites and aircraft.
The Laboratory specializes in the design and manufacture of robots and robotic systems for industrial projects. The laboratory's competence includes mobile robotics, drones, projects related to virtual reality and tactile technologies.
