German agency. Deutsche Aerospace AG, Bremen, Germany.

Deutsche Aerospace AG Daimler-Benz Aerospace AG DaimlerChrysler Aerospace AG Founded May 19, 1989 as Deutsche Aerospace AG, bundling space and aeronautic elements of Daimler-Benz, Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB), MTU München, and Telefunken Systemtechnik (TST) In 1992, the helicopter division was joined to Aerospatiale's helicopter division to form the Eurocopter Group. Renamed on 1.1.1995 to Daimler-Benz Aerospace AG, on 7.11.1998 to DaimlerChrysler Aerospace AG. Siemens Sicherungstechnik joined in 1997. In 2000 the aerospace division was joined to Matra Marconi Space to form Astrium. Member of EADS.

AKA: ERNO; Daimler-Benz Aerospace; Deutsche Aerospace.

Associated Programs
  • Mir The Mir space station was the last remnant of the once mighty Soviet space programme. It was built to last only five years, and was to have been composed of modules launched by Proton and Buran/Energia launch vehicles. These modules were derived from those originally designed by Chelomei in the 1960's for the Almaz military station programme. As the Soviet Union collapsed Mir stayed in orbit, but the final modules were years late and could only be completed with American financial assistance. Kept flying over a decade beyond its rated life, Mir proved a source of pride to the Russian people and proved the ability of their cosmonauts and engineers to improvise and keep operations going despite all manner of challenges and mishaps.
