bentekk develops gas measurement instruments for detecting toxic pollutants in industrial applications.
10x faster measurements at lower total cost enable regulatory compliance and increase workplace safety.
Confovis GmbH, based in Jena, has developed a novel technique for fast and efficient 3D optical profiling. The confovis scan modules, for the first time, do not require moving mechanical parts and achieve a unique combination of high speed, compact size and robustness.
CONTROS provides sensor systems for detecting dissolved CO2, hydrocarbons and methane in water for up to 6,000m. These systems find their applications in Offshore risk management (platform safety, leak detection, blow out prevention, etc.), general oceanographic research such as greenhouse gas studies as well as the exploration / exploitation of methane hydrates. One major future challenge is the monitoring of CO2 sequestrated oil and gas deposits.
Exit since March 2015.
Cycle develops, produces and markets ultra-short pulse laser technology.
Main product categories are laser-based synchronization, lasers and micro-electronics.
dotscene GmbH develops hardware and software for the efficient capture of 3D models, with the special focus on mobile 3D laser scanning and mapping for indoor and outdoor environments. Our latest laser scanner development dotcube 600k can be used as handheld device, on drones, and on vehicles. Mobile and flexible data acquisition is enabled by applying SLAM algorithms (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) from the domain of mobile robotics. This makes laser scanning independent of external reference variables such as GPS or specific markers. Based on this technology dotscene creates CAD models, true-to-scale floor plans and facade projections for its customers, mainly from the real estate sector.
