Add-on contract for SAR-Lupe

OHB-System AG awarded further contract covering enhancements

Bremen-based space technology company OHB-System AG was today awarded an additional contract by the German Federal Office of Defense Technology and Procurement worth around EUR 18 million in connection with the SAR-Lupe project. At the end of 2004, OHB had been invited to submit a further offer for technical enhancements to the satellite system.

These primarily entail improvements to the protection of communications between the satellites and the ground station going far beyond current standards.

The modifications in question are already being successfully implemented for the SAR-Lupe system.
