April 17, 2017 Switzerland leaps ahead with first nanosatellite network
Tokyo (SCCIJ) – The Swiss “new space” start-up ELSE is preparing to launch two demonstration nanosatellites in the last quarter of this year. They will be the first units of its planned 64-nanosatellite Machine-to-Machine global satellite network on a low-earth orbit. The goal of the network called AstroCast is to offer IoT (Internet of Things) satellite communication at the lowest cost in the industry. The AstroCast customers will be able to track and monitor their assets anywhere around the globe with miniaturized and inexpensive communication terminals. The data subscription plans to be offered are expected to cost only a few dollars per year for each device. In contrast to Switzerland’s upcoming commercial network, Japan is still in the phase where nanosatellites are launched by universities for research purposes only. [more]

Tokyo (SCCIJ) - Chugai Pharmaceutical, the Japanese subsidiary of Roche Holding from Basel, Switzerland, and the fifth largest pharmaceutical company in Japan, is giving sufferers of atopic dermatitis new hope to reduce their annoying itchiness.

April 07, 2017 Switzerland's unique flow cell electric car races off
Tokyo (SCCIJ) - The battery-powered electric car is slowly getting popular worldwide, but Japan and Switzerland have each taken deviating paths to the electric future of the automobile industry. Whereas Japan's Toyota and Honda have commercialized the hydrogen car based on fuel cell technology, the startup nanoFlowcell from Kilchberg, Switzerland, is banking on its unique flow cell drive powered by ionic liquids. Its latest research advances were recently shown at the Geneva International Motor Show. The nanoFlowcell sports car QUANT 48VOLT is currently the lightest, safest, most environmentally compatible and most economical drive system available anywhere for electric vehicles. But the innovative Japanese and Swiss approaches to electric vehicles encounter the same hurdle - how to get new fuel when your tank is empty.[more]
