The Neustrelitz site of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is approximately 100km north of Berlin in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and is the workplace of about 60 scientists, engineers and clerical staff. The R&D work carried out on-site covers themes such as surveillance of the earth by satellite, and navigation; a profile which aligns the site with others in the GMES and GALILEO European research programmes.
