Our special skills and expertise in ramjets rocket motors and gas generators makes us a competent and reliable partner for space projects today, tomorrow and in the future. We’ve been designing and producing propulsion systems for international projects for over 60 years. This experience gives us the capability to quickly and sustainably bring space propulsion systems to market-maturity.

Future Space Transport:

Since 2014, we have been a project partner in the development of the SABRE (Synergetic Air Breathing Rocket Engine). For its high efficiency SABRE combines various propulsion technologies into a single engine which also employs an integrated ramjet from Bayern-Chemie. This results in a significant reduction in both weight and volume compared to conventional launchers.


The steady increase of space junk especially in LEO is already a significant problem. It is becoming necessary to equip certain satellites with propulsion systems that will assure their return at the end of service life. Bayern-Chemie developes and produces solid rocket motors for such de-orbiting missions. The recognised benefits of solid rocket motors are simple design, low cost, easy handling and insensitivity to space radiation. Bayern-Chemie is a 100% subsidiary of MBDA-Germany.

The International Astronautic Federation (IAF) has adopted the Global Innovation Agenda 2016-2019 with a number of targeted interventions, of which the first is to Reach out to Emerging Countries and Connect with New Communities. A proposed definition of Emerging countries are those countries that have space ambitions, but have not moved to establish national space programmes through the formal adoption of national space policies/strategies and/or no resources have been committed as yet. The IAF aims to understand challenges facing these nations with the intent of supporting their aspirational space programmes.

There are proposed interventions from the Federation through its networks to provide political support, financial support, technology readiness support, human capital development and support for infrastructure improvements.

Countries within this classification are located in South America, Africa and parts of Asia.

EUMETSAT operates four geostationary Meteosat spacecraft over Europe, Africa and the Indian Ocean, providing frequent observations vital for severe weather warnings, and two Metop polar orbiting satellites which give access to a unique wealth of ocean, land and atmospheric parameters that are essential for forecasting of high impact weather up to 10 days in advance. Reprocessing and cross calibration of long series of data from both systems provide unique climate data records.

EUMETSAT is also a partner in the Jason ocean altimetry missions exploited jointly with NOAA, NASA and CNES. Since 2016 EUMETSAT exploits the Copernicus Sentinel-3 marine mission, in cooperation with ESA and on behalf of the EU, and delivers data services to the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service.

EUMETSAT delivers real time, integrated data streams to users worldwide and makes its more than 30-year archive of observations available to scientists, research and operational users.

PTScientists is a German commercial space company that aims to land the first private mission on the Moon and develop reusable lunar infrastructures.

We believe that “Space belongs to everybody” and through our work we aim to reduce the cost of access to space and encourage more people around the world to get involved in exploration and space research. Our goal is to become the leading provider of lunar transport and communications infrastructure, enabling future missions at a lower cost.

We are working with Key Technology Partners Audi and Vodafone Germany on Mission to the Moon, our first lunar mission. We will send a pair of Audi lunar quattro rovers to the lunar surface to capture the first high resolution images of Apollo 17’s original lunar roving vehicle, more than 45 years since it was left on the Moon.

During Mission to the Moon we will also be carrying out a technology demonstration with Vodafone for an innovative on-surface communications solution using 4G, as well as carrying out multiple scientific experiments with our payload partners.

PTScientists is based in Berlin and is a proud member of the global space community.

The Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) continually strives to set new standards and to achieve a sustainable progress - ­in science and research, as well as in teaching. We are highly committed to support the education of students and young scientist by offering the early opportunity to work on realistic and practical space projects. This is done through our involvement in several international study and outreach programs. ZARM is especially honored to be a cooperating partner in the REXUS/BEXUS Programme.

The REXUS/BEXUS Programme allows students from universities and higher education colleges across Europe to carry out scientific and technological experiments on sounding rockets and balloons. Each year, two rockets and two balloons are launched from the Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden, carrying up to 20 experiments designed and built by student teams.

The REXUS/BEXUS Programme is realized under a bilateral Agency Agreement between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA) and conducted in collaboration with the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC), the Mobile Racket Base (MORABA) of DLR, the European Space Agency (ESA), and ZARM.

The Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) of the University of Bremen - headed by Executive Director Prof. Marc Avila - is an internationally recognized institute with multidisciplinary expertise in fluid mechanics, space technology and space science. Our research covers experimental, theoretical and computational approaches, fundamental scientific questions, as well as the development of technology for space missions and microgravity experiments.

The Bremen Drop Tower is the main facility of ZARM and the only laboratory of this kind in Europe. Up to three times a day, it offers the most economic opportunity for short-term experiments under highest-quality microgravity conditions. The increasing demand for drop experiments paved the way for ZARM's brand new test facility (GTB-PRO), which will allow conducting over 100 microgravity experiments per day.

Due to the broad space engineering know-how and the very successful operation of the drop tower, the ZARM team has established expertise in the design, integration and conduction of experiments under space conditions also on platforms such as sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons. Our expertise is highly appreciated by our cooperation partners and scientists from all over the world.

ZARM is honored to be the local organizer of the IAC 2018 in Bremen.

It is our mission to make science happen: The Bremen Drop Tower is the main facility of ZARM and the only laboratory of this kind in Europe. Up to three times a day, it offers the most economic opportunity for short-term experiments under highest-quality microgravity conditions (10-6 g). The increasing demand for drop experiments paved the way for ZARM’s brand new lab: the GraviTower Prototype, which allows the conduction of over 100 microgravity experiments per day. The start of its operation is scheduled for 2019.

Through the very successful operation of the Bremen Drop Tower for more than 25 years, the ZARM team has gained extensive experience in space engineering. We have become experts for the design, integration and conduction of experiments under space conditions also on platforms such as sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons. Our expertise is highly appreciated by our cooperation partners and scientists from all over the world.

ZARM is honoured to be the local organizer of the IAC 2018 in Bremen.

ZARM Technik AG was founded in 1997 as a spin-off from the Centre of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity, an institute of the University of Bremen. Since its founding ZARM Technik became one of the leading manufacturers of magnetic torquer and magnetometers. Components produced for satellites are in use on most European and numerously international spacecrafts as the European Navigation system Galileo, Sentinel 2, Sentinel 5, Sentinel 6, Astro-H, Radarsat, CYGNSS, ICESAT2, Galileo or NuStar. ZARM Technik AG is manufacturing for all large system integrators as Airbus Defence & Space, OHB System, Thales Alenia Space, NEC, Melco, Orbital ATK, SpaceX etc., universities and Space agencies as ESA, DLR, Jaxa, NASA etc worldwide. By now more than 160 missions have been successfully supplied. A number of these are for more than a decade in orbit as for instance the Grace mission since 2002.

Over the last years ZARM Technik AG has received several awards for successful work in different national and international projects.
