OHB System AG Signs Contract with European Space Agency for Study on the Satellite-Based Observation of Weather Phenomena in Space

OHB System AG signed a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) for a study on the satellite-based observation of weather phenomena in space. Proposals for the ‘Lagrange Mission’ study had been requested under ESA's ‘Space Situational Awareness’ program. The contract is valued at EUR 3.3 million. OHB System AG will be conducting one of two parallel studies. Specifically, it will be exploring a mission on ‘Lagrange Point 5’, which is located around 150 million kilometers from the earth. Currently, the space environment surrounding the earth is largely being monitored by ground-based systems. For example, such residual objects as ‘space debris’ are observed and classified using radar systems and telescopes. A similar situation also applies to the observation of space weather effects, which are also monitored from the surface of the earth.
