For the group, the focus in the space domain is primarily on the integration and utilization of space-based reconnaissance data in the tactical battlefield. To meet the individual needs of military customers, the group is working on customized solutions for tactical vehicles. By cooperation with selected partner companies, state-of-the-art technologies and services from the space sector will be made available to the defence sector.
