Every third aerospace employee in Germany works in Bavaria. Aerospace technology, satellite navigation and remote sensing in Bavaria cover the entire value added chain: major aerospace companies such as EADS-Space, MT Aerospace, IABG and Kayser-Threde are based in Bavaria. And key components for the European ARIANE launcher are made in Bavaria - like the solid propellant booster cases for the thrust chambers of all ARIANE 5 liquid fuel rockets (Aestus and Vulcain).
