“Space travel has become indispensable in our modern lives. Our lives today demand a much more extensive knowledge than a generation ago. From space, we can explore, analyze and understand our home planet. Space is not only fascinating but also an essential part of our modern life. A day without space is not possible – and technology “made in Jena” is always a part of it.”
Peter Kapell, CEO Jena-Optronik GmbH

Space for success For many decades we enable and support spectacular and successful space missions for international customers.
As vast as the universe is, there is no space for inaccuracy: sensors by Jena-Optronik keep satellites and spacecrafts stable and on track.
Visionary technology in the truest sense of the word: our space optics & electronics help to generate crucial Earth observation data, helping to improve the quality of life.
Success factor number 1 in all our projects are the employees of Jena-Optronik. With their their know-how, commitment and the goal of discovering new horizons, they make space travel possible from Jena. Our Teamspace – consisting of 235 space travelers at the Jena site – thus supports missions worldwide.
Through the very strong local network of science, research and industry, many regional partners and suppliers are also involved in the development and production of space products “made in Jena”.
