During the institutional discussion was underlined the important role of OHB Italia in the relationship between the two countries thanks to the ongoing realization of NAOS satellite for the Government of the Grand Duchy, an Earth Observation mission with very high resolution imaging system and payload with panchromatic and multispectral camera.
