Planetary Transportation Systems is a German new-space company whose aim is to bring down the cost of space exploration and democratise access to Space.
We are committed to breaking down the barriers to research in space, by developing reliable and affordable systems to deliver experiments and payloads to their desired locations. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of exploration, promoting new talent in the space industry, and developing solutions that work for a range of customers – from space agencies and industry, through to academic institutions.
We pride ourselves on our innovative approach, use of the latest technology, and openness to cross-disciplinary partnerships. Working with several industry partners such as Zeitfracht and ArianeGroup, we have brought in expertise from different sectors to develop a ground-breaking scientific and technology.
PTS is a privately held company, and our goal is to show that it is possible to build a sustainable business in space exploration. As well as delivering cheaper and more regular opportunities for academics, industry and educational institutions to conduct in-space research, we are keen to develop in-space infrastructure required for humanities future exploration of space.
Our industrial and academic partnerships help to drive the technological developments of our lunar mission, and include the development of new space-grade technologies for power utilisation, electronics, data-hosting and optical systems.
PTS is dedicated to democratising space, and inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and explorers.
