We develop Space Products.


For in-house development or as a service to customers - we know what it takes to bring hardware in space!
This Engineering Know-How is our core competence.
Our main activity is the development of carbon fibre composite structures including large spacecraft primary structures.
Other areas of expertise include development of instrument structures, opto-mechanical systems, electronic equipment, propulsion systems, ISS instruments & experiments, MGSE.
Space Structures is successfully involved in R&D projects. These provide the fundament on which new products are based on.
We supply SpaceBolt™, the only commercially available European software for bolt analysis according to space standards. Our software engineering also offers custom software development for special applications in the mechanical and thermal domains.
We are not a manufacturer. For manufacturing we rely on a network of highly specialised partners.
