The growing number of actors and users of space might become a problem for its future utilization. Packed orbits, jammed frequencies, irresponsible actions, space debris… all can influence how sustainable the space business will be in the future. It is important that we find ways to ensure that humanity will be able to continue benefiting from the use of outer space as a resource for big scientific and technological advances.
The development and use of new technologies and processes with focus on space sustainability from space and non-space sectors have potential for greater benefits in the future. OHB is seeking for new ideas for a more sustainable future space sector – from novel concepts to competitive solutions:
- Ideas and concepts for cost-reduction and efficiency in the manufacturing of future space systems: e.g. robotics systems, automation, power systems, etc.
- Technologies for better use of the space infrastructure: e.g. applications and services based on space technology, cryptographic technologies, cloud operations, cyber-security.
- Ideas for commercialisation of space, exploration, experiments and any other inspiring idea in the space sector that might contribute to a more sustainable space business!
Overall, OHB aims at ensuring long-term sustainability in space while increasing the performance in all future space projects.
Let’s make space a more sustainable business!
