Seu irmão mais novo, Friedrich Steinhoff, ajudou nas experiências com foguetes enquanto comandava o U-511 em 1942. Friedrich foi capturado a bordo de um U-873 e cometeu suicídio na prisão de Boston antes que Ernst chegasse aos Estados Unidos, em 16 de Novembro de 1945. Ernst era contra a decisão dos cientistas se renderem e viajarem para os Estados Unidos para fornecer conhecimento sobre sobre foguetes via Operação Paperclip. Depois de chegar aos Estados Unidos e trabalhar em Fort Bliss, Texas (1945-1949), ele se mudou para a "base aérea de Holloman" tendo trabalhado também no Campo de Teste de Mísseis de White Sands no Novo México. Sua área de especialização eram os instrumentos de direção e controle de atitude. Ele recebeu uma condecoração por serviços prestados em 1958 por sua contribuição ao programa de foguetes dos Estados Unidos.

His younger brother Friedrich Steinhoff assisted rocket experiments while commanding U-511 in 1942. Ernst was among the scientists to surrender and travel to the United States to provide rocketry expertise via Operation Paperclip. Friedrich was captured aboard U-873 and committed suicide in a Boston jail before Ernst came to the United States on the first boat, November 16, 1945. with Operation Paperclip and Fort Bliss, Texas (1945-1949). He then moved to Holloman Air Force Base where he also worked closely with White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. He focused on guidance, control, and range instrumentation throughout his career. He was awarded the Decoration for Exceptional Civilian Service in 1958 for his contributions to the US rocket program. In 1979 he was inducted into the New Mexico International Space Hall of Fame. Steinhoff is being credited as one of the first pioneers to popularize the concept of space resource utilization for Mars exploration.
