Projekt Renesans, realizowany przez Creotech Instruments SA. polega na opracowaniu uniwersalnej platformy satelitarnej HyperSat, służącej do realizacji misji kosmicznych w krótkim czasie i przy niskich kosztach, w szczególności do budowy konstelacji satelitarnych. Ta modułowa platforma opracowywana jest w ramach projektu Europejskiego Funduszu Rozwoju Regionalnego, przy wsparciu Programu Operacyjnego Inteligentny Rozwój 2014-2020. Głównymi zaletami platformy będzie jej modularność i powtarzalność. Klienci będą mogli dowolnie konfigurować satelitę korzystając z gotowych modułów. Creotech Instruments jest jedyną firmą w Polsce dysponującą procesami technologicznymi i linią produkcyjną, certyfikowanymi do produkcji elektroniki przeznaczonej do zastosowań w przestrzeni kosmicznej przez Europejską Agencję Kosmiczną ESA.
