The company began developing private space technologies for transportation in space as a German participant in Google’s Lunar XPRIZE competition. To this end, the company developed several award-winning spacecraft and lunar rovers, as well as highly reliable space avionics. In extensive tests, the company was able to prove that the technology it developed could withstand the harsh conditions of space and thus won two highly endowed Milestone Prize Awards from Google.
Today, PTS provides high-performance electronics for spacecraft to commercial customers and space agencies around the world. The technology was developed jointly with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the European Space Agency (ESA). With the Major Tom space mission, we will soon launch our first satellite into space based on our own avionics.
