Performance for LSIs

What we offer

Excellence for Science

For decades, the space SME associated today with AKRK have proven to be a reliable partner of science and

scientific institutions. In the last fifty years, mixed teams of scientists and SME-engineers have been responsible for a large number of highly successful science missions. The list of customer names reads like the “Who-is-Who” of the international elite; highly renowned institutions such as Max Planck, Fraunhofer, GFZ and many others including also top universities, rely on the cooperation with German AKRK-SMEs for excellent results of space missions, who provide them with tailormade instruments, hardware components, software and electronics.

Performance for LSIs

The German and European LSIs play a vital role on the international markets for satellites, orbital infrastructures and ground stations serving science and governments, commercial telecommunications industries and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). When it comes to equipment, subsystems, electronics and software, however, they all rely on the special abilities and capabilities of space SMEs contributing to the final first class products with efficient solutions in detail.

It is the large system integrators who benefit in a unique way from the competence of space SMEs:
