Brief portrait

The systems specialist OHB System AG is one of the leading independent forces in European space. We have been making a name for ourselves on the market with our creative and business approach for a good 35 years particularly in our core business comprising low-orbiting and geostationary satellites. We are developing and executing some of the key projects of our times such as the Galileo navigation satellites, the SARah reconnaissance system, the MTG meteorological satellites, the EnMAP environment satellite, the TET-1 technology testing vehicle and the HispaSat, ELECTRA and EDRS-C telecommunications satellites.

In manned space flight, we are working intensively on humanity's most remote outpost, the International Space Station ISS. We were materially involved in assembling and equipping the Columbus research laboratory fitted to the ISS and the ATV space freighter as well as numerous experiment systems used on board the ISS.

Ideas and systems for studying our solar system form the core of our exploration activities. OHB System is working intensively on ESA’s two-part flagship mission ExoMars as well as on further studies for exploring and charting the moon, Mars, Jupiter and other celestial bodies.

Broadband wireless transmission of image data forms a core technology for security and reconnaissance. Our Process Control Systems segment is responsible for the successful transfer of space technology for use in industrial applications.

OHB System traditionally combines the technologies of leading national and international companies to develop new solutions. With these partnerships and the effective participation in syndicates, we have been a sought-after and reliable partner for the European Space Agency ESA, the German Aerospace Center DLR, the German Federal Ministry of Defense as well as for customers in the private and public sector for several decades.
