About

Space technologies have undoubtedly become key enabling technologies of the 21st century. Everyday life relies on the satellite-based infrastructure that makes telecommunications, navigation and Earth observation possible. At the same time, space technologies help us better understand and address the key challenges faced by humankind, such as global warming and other environmental catastrophes.

Austrian scientists and companies have been highly active in developing innovative space technologies for many years. Thanks to their outstanding results, many have been selected as suppliers of high-tech components for satellites and launchers. In the future, our challenge will be to capitalize on the potential of space infrastructure and the information it provides in order to develop better societies, jobs and growth.

A wide range of space technologies is currently “made in Austria”. The excellent standard of research, products and services in Austria has been strengthened significantly by our national space programme (ASAP). ASAP aims at supporting the competitiveness of the Austrian space community within international programmes, such as those run by the European Space Agency (ESA). The Aeronautics and Space Agency (ALR) and the Association of the Austrian Space Industry (Austrospace) actively support organisations wishing to cooperate with ESA, NASA, and national space agencies on a global scale.

With this web portal the Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology presents Austrian companies and research institutes, their research areas, competencies, products and services with the goal to increase the international visibility and to support networking of national and international players.

The Ministry invites all Austrian companies, research organisations and institutes involved in space technology, which are not yet listed on www.spacetechnology.at, to register and present themselves on the web portal. Register Now
