AOCS/GNC Engineer

Maybe, because history is now and together with you we can change its course. Czech flag on the Moon and our products and services on every continent. This is our vision for 2030. The company was founded with the sole purpose to bring together the best experts, engineers and scientists to the Czech Republic and to work on great things.

Or, because we aim to be a global company which as a system integrator delivers complete missions. We also have our own products which we sell worldwide. And our mission is to make the Czech Republic one of the prime countries within the space industry. We connect industry, academia, and science centres not only from CZ but also from other countries in central and eastern Europe. We are stronger together. We partnered for one common goal: to collect geological data and uncover the unknown about the Moon surface and subsurface. The results of such a joint work will land on the Moon together with the Czech flag. The flag is a symbol representing the fact that countries from central and eastern Europe can do great missions and be part of the Space First League.


We’re a Czech company that supplies satellites and space probes. We design, produce, and assemble them precisely according to the demands of our customers from Europe, Africa, Asia, and Central and Southern America. We work on two EO satellites and one Moon probe. We have in development a smart hyperspectral camera, Lidar technology and a microgravity space laboratory. We know how to use state of the art technologies such as additive manufacturing and we integrate these technologies into our products. And that is just a small example of what we do!
