Why ESA broker Germany?
As a technology broker for ESA we focus on adapting technologies that were developed for space programmes for non-space applications. This includes the transfer of software- and hardware-related technologies such as to commercial applications of satellite systems, but also the transfer of know-how such as development processes and methodologies used in the space business. We assess market needs in the non-space sectors and match those needs with existing or novel space technologies or services. In addition, we also support the transfer process itself.
