The European satellite constellation IRIS² is a significant step towards technological sovereignty and strategic autonomy of Europe. Secure connectivity from space plays a growing and crucial role in various applications such as autonomous mobility, digitalization, broadband connectivity in rural areas, as well as cloud services. The future ability to perform interconnection through a European constellation is a milestone for Europe’s digital sovereignty.
By involving the German and European space industry, the IRIS² program will strengthen international competitiveness and cooperation while driving forward innovative high technologies from Germany and Europe.
Beside the industry team (consortia & core team) that is currently bidding for the IRIS² program, it is planned to spend at minimum of 30% of the contract value to companies outside the industry team (including affiliates). To support this important participation of the German and European industry, OHB System AG will hold an IRIS² supplier day to address this part of the program in the OHB share of IRIS².
The supplier day will be held as online event at
19. September (postponed).
The agenda and login link will be shared in early September via same channels as this announcement.
