History and Heritage
During the first years of operation SpaceTech developed into an acknowledged system provider for terrestrial and space applications with a solid customer base world-wide. Starting from export projects, mainly for the asian market, national and european contracts gain more and more importance over the years. The proven flight heritage enabled SpaceTech to be selected as provider for highly demanding systems for ESA satellites.
Originally consisting of just two persons, the two founders Bernhard Doll and Jost Munder, SpaceTech quickly acquired more personal and has seen a steady growth ever since. Parallel to the increase of personel SpaceTech contracts and facilities have grown, making SpaceTech now the largest german SME active in the space business.
