What we do

DLR Space Administration designs and implements Germany's Space Program, which integrates all German space activities on the national and European plane. These activities include Germany's national Space Program and Germany's contributions to the European Space Agency (ESA) as well as the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT). In addition, the Administration shapes and monitors the Space topic within the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The Space Administration's principal client is the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. However, the Space Administration also works for other ministries, mainly in application-related fields such as Earth observation, navigation and satellite communication. The Federal Government's Space Program provides both business and science with a reliable political framework for independent planning and action, thus ensuring that public funds are used efficiently.
