The institute conducts research in astrophysics, Solar System physics, geodesy, and space technology. To conduct the research, the Institute collaborates with the Niels Bohr Institute for Astronomy, Geophysics and Physics.
It came about as a result of combining the Danish Space Research Institute with the geodesy part of the National Survey and Cadastre of Denmark on 1 January 2005 to form the Danish National Space Center (DNSC). In 2007, the DNSC merged with the Technical University of Denmark, and in 2008 changed its name to DTU Space.
