OHB leads design of future sovereign European missile defence programme

Bremen, 5 July 2021 - The European Commission has selected OHB System AG, a subsidiary of space and technology group OHB SE, to lead a space surveillance and early warning project.

“The Project named ODIN’S EYE (Multinational Development Initiative for a Space-based Missile Early-Warning Architecture) will set the basis for the development of an autonomous European early-warning capability against ballistic missiles and hypersonic threats”, said Michele Bonerba, Project Manager and Head of Future Space Security Programmes at OHB. “This important award confirms once again OHB’s leadership, know-how and strong commitment to serve the European strategic and security goals.”

ODIN’S EYE requires coordinating a European consortium of 34 partners from 12 EU member states. The project is funded by the European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP).
