OHB Hellas' participation in ODIN's EYE Project
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, named ODIN’S EYE (Multinational Development Initiative for a Space-based Missile Early-Warning Architecture). The project is funded by the European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP). "The Project named ODIN'S EYE 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 consists of a European consortium of 34 partners from 12 EU member states. Among them, there is an important Greek industrial participation with INTRACOM DEFENSE that will focus on state of the art technologies in Secure Communications and Cybersecurity frameworks and OHB Hellas, with its main expertise on the development of On-Board Sensor Data Processing technologies for satellite platforms. This marks also the first presence of Greek industries in a European Space Defence project under the EDIDP-EDF framework.
