We construct the \( \mathcal{N} = {1} \) supersymmetric extension of double field theory for D = 10, including the coupling to an arbitrary number n of abelian vector multiplets. This theory features a local O(1, 9 + n) × O(1, 9) tangent space symmetry under which the fermions transform. It is shown that the supersymmetry transformations close into the generalized diffeomorphisms of double field theory.
