OHB and ESA Φ-lab to boost Earth Observation

Athens, 27 July 2021. – The European Space Agency (ESA) and OHB will cooperate to boost commercial Earth Observation services, the agency said.

Φ-lab, the Division in the Future Systems department of the EO (Earth Observation) Programmes Directorate of ESA, and OHB Systems AG agreed to examine together “transformational technologies” to benefit the end-users of the commercial EO market, ESA said.

The collaboration, which is one of many of ESA’s Φ-lab with research centres, industry and private investors, might be extended to a joint research programme in the future, ESA said.

It aims to characterise and advance transformative commercial services and technologies powered by space-based data.
