OHB is looking for ideas for the future space sector: from novel concepts to competitive solutions. Technologies and processes from space and non-space sectors could be exploited for greater benefits in the future. The OHB challenge is intended to identify innovative, promising ideas and concepts to support the implementation and use of space solutions.

Topics can include: robotics, smart materials, new technologies, asteroid mining, commercial space services … and any other inspiring idea in the space sector!

Space needs visions. Each idea has its own particular time and requires a certain period in which to reach fruition. And each idea is preceded by a vision. In the absence of imagination, courage and willingness to take risks, progress falters. Having visions means thinking in terms of the future.

OHB Challenge will open the door to those visionaries, who are willing to take risks, to think out of the box, to think across sectors, to be innovative and creative.  The space of tomorrow will look, most likely, very different to the space of today. commercialisation of space, miniaturisation, digitalisation, etc. are only few examples of how space is just starting to take off. The way business is done will certainly change in the next decade, and adaptation and innovation is the only way to continue being a leader in Europe and worldwide.

OHB keeps working to make space technology simpler and cheaper, keeping its performance to the state of the art. Moreover, OHB keep working towards the future, adapting its day to day work towards more efficient and improved solutions.
