Global Brain has invested in GITAI Japan, Inc. (GITAI), a startup that develops general purpose work robot for space use and aims to provide RaaS (Robotics as a Service) by its robot products, through its EP-GB L.P.

GITAI is a space robot startup that develops general purpose work robot in space such as space stations, the Moon and the Mars and aims to provide RaaS by its robot products. Amid accelerating space development and exploration, such as lunar resource development, Mars exploration, ISS commercialization, various works and tasks in space and on lunar or Mars will increase rapidly to construct new space stations, lunar bases and Mars bases and to remove space debris. However, even though these tasks are mostly general, it is still the case that astronauts must do them with many risks of injury or death and huge costs for training and transportation. Toward resolving such issues, GITAI is developing general purpose work robots that can combine high safety and low cost in space development.

Global Brain sees GITAI has not only technology capability but also high-level engineering team and its achievements that will be able to keep its competitiveness and growth in the emerging market of space business. Global Brain will continue leveraging its resources to assist GITAI’s business and product developments.
