This is all us

For decades now we’ve been making space missions possible: enterprises that are as spectacular as they are successful. Today we’re the global leader for attitude and orbit control sensors for satellites and optical instruments for Earth observation.

Our regional roots are the basis for our work. Our home base is Jena, a town in Germany that was the home of Carl Zeiss – and a high-tech center where the art of German engineering and research meets passion and drive. To contribute to the future of our city and the people living here we support local events and institutaions.
