Our business activities focus on supporting company foundations and commercial applications based on aerospace technologies and infrastructures. Our Bavarian locations in Oberpfaffenhofen, Nuremberg, and Berchtesgadener Land have aided more than 80 start-ups in recent years, which places them among the most successful incubation programmes involving the commercial use of space technologies and infrastructures. In coordinating Europe's two leading innovation networks for the space programmes Galileo (satellite navigation) and Copernicus (Earth observation), we also support the development of more than 600 new business and product innovations every year.
AZO was founded in Oberpfaffenhofen - a well-known hub of the aerospace industry near Munich, Germany - by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with the support of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport, and Technology in 2004.
