DLR Braunschweig is home to a part of DLR's research aircraft fleet.
DLR (CC-BY 3.0).
C²A²S²E-Cluster: Europe's fastest computer for aeronautics research.
Microwave autoclave to cure new materials for aircraft construction.
The tower simulation at the DLR Institute of Flight Guidance.
The Institute of Air Transport and Airport Research aims at developing measures for airport management that efficiently integrate passenger movement into landside and airside processes thus fostering efficient intermodal transport.
The rotor test facility at the Institute of Flight Systems.
The dynamic driving simulator at the DLR Institute of Transportation Systems in Braunschweig.
The German-Dutch Wind Tunnels (DNW) foundation operates the most powerful aero-acoustic wind tunnel in the world at the DLR site in Braunschweig.
The DLR research aircraft Airbus ATRA along with seven other aircraft are based in Braunschweig.
At the DLR_School_Lab in Braunschweig, the students themselves are the researchers.
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.
Range of services
Unique high-performance facilities, research flight and automotive vehicles, flight simulators, air traffic simulation facilities, wind tunnels in the European DNW foundation (German-Dutch Wind Tunnels), mobile rotor test stands and test stands for material and noise tests are available for experimental research.
Test equipment for sophisticated, experimental technology is designed and manufactured in the modern workshops of DLR Engineering Systems House. An in-house office of airworthiness surveys the safe and operations of the complex experimental installations in fixed wing aircraft and helicopters of the Braunschweig Research flight department. The certified Rail Site® provides DLR with the competence to support industry in the certification of their rail system components. Furthermore DLR consults users in the application of composite fiber technologies and new materials in industry.
Focal areas of research are:
DLR Braunschweig cooperates closely with TU Baunschweig, other research establishments and in networks such as Research Airport and ForschungRegion Braunschweig.
Institutes and facilities
Apprenticeships, continuing education and the promotion of young scientists
DLR is certified establishment for apprenticeships, vocational training and continuing/college education. It provides school and job internships as well as industrial-technical and commercial apprenticeships. It also provides additional qualification for scientists by coaching them on their diploma thesis and enabling them to acquire their PhD. The DLR_School_Lab Braunschweig is a curricular learning center where school students can carry out experiments on their own and acquire an insight into everyday research.
