SpaceTech believes in and lives flat hierarchies. The structure of the company is based on a matrix organization centred on product groups in which the individual projects are allocated. Disciplinary groups provide the project workforce in a flexible and efficient way. This supports efficient internal communication, quick decision-making processes, simple working interfaces and a fast and flexible response to customer requirements and expectations.
STI daughter companies
Being a SpaceTech daughter company, Carbospacetech (CST) designs and manufactures innovative carbon parts. Their product portfolio ranges from custom-tailored, winded carbon parts for the space industry to solar panel substrate production with automated laydown of carbon fibre. CST furthermore develops important test equipment for space applications, such as the ZeroG robot, making use of the favourable characteristics of their carbon materials.
SpaceTech was able to incorporate neonsee in 2019. neonsee designs high-end solar simulation systems, using the innovative and unique single light source technology. This technology offers steady-state solar simulation, high beam collimation, spatial uniformity, temporal stability and full irradiance control - characteristics that are mandatory for testing of equipment and materials used in products for space missions, such as thermal balance testing.
