OHB SE is a European multinational technology corporation. Headquartered in Bremen, Germany, the corporation consists of the two business divisions Space Systems and Aerospace + Industrial Products.[2] A key product of the corporation is fully integrated spacecraft.[3] At present OHB is the third largest corporation in Europe's space sector.[4]

The company OHB System AG is a major constituent of the OHB corporation. This company was founded in 1958 as a marine systems outfitter.[5] However the activities of the company shifted toward space technology in the 1980s after the couple Christa Fuchs and Manfred Fuchs took over ownership of the company.[6]


The company has been working on numerous prestigious national German and international projects related to small satellites, manned space flight as well as security and reconnaissance technologies.
