The German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Braunschweig does research in the fields of aeronautics, transport, space and energy. Located at the Research Airport, DLR continues the tradition of the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DFL), founded in 1936, and employs there about 1100 highly-qualified scientists and engineers.
There are no events for the selected time-range.
Zurich airport is divided into two sections by an active runway. This centrally located runway has to be crossed by most of the arriving and departing aircraft. With the 'Rerouting runway 28' project, aircraft will use a new taxiway east of the runway, thereby considerably reducing the number of crossings to further increase safety. But can this new taxiway be operated smoothly?
A test simulating crashes between high-speed trains, hunting for clouds in West Africa, the maiden flight of a four-passenger fuel cell aircraft – 2016 at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has been a year of numerous research highlights.
When aircraft are in flight, vortices are generated behind them from the wing tips. These are known as wake vortices, and they can have safety implications for following air traffic. The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has now tested the improvement of a wake vortex avoidance system in flight tests.
Reducing aircraft noise over residential areas while saving kerosene – this dual improvement is the aim of a joint research project being conducted by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the Umwelt- und Nachbarschaftshaus (UNH) in Kelsterbach.
