DLR at JEC World 2017 in Paris

13. March 2017

From 14-16 March 2017, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is presenting current research projects in the field of fibre-reinforced high-performance plastics at JEC World in Paris, the leading European trade fair for fibre composite construction.

Greater safety and efficiency at airports

16. February 2017

The modernisation of air traffic management is one of the main challenges of current aeronautics research. For this reason, the European Union initiated the Single European Sky ATM Research Programme (SESAR) within the Horizon 2020 research framework programme.

A greenhouse in space, quieter aircraft, and cargo that flies to its destination on its own

26. January 2017

Climate change, digitalisation, Industry 4.0 and transformation of the energy and traffic systems – these central societal responsibilities will be at the heart of the research conducted by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in 2017. DLR will present the focus of this year's research and some selected projects at the New Year’s press conference on 26 January 2017 in Berlin.

New taxiway to optimise traffic at Zurich airport

6. January 2017

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?

2016 at DLR - A timely discovery, popcorn floating in the sea and a visit by the German Chancellor

23. December 2016

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.

Flying around wake vortices – new system tested in flight trials

20. December 2016

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.

Less aircraft noise and lower fuel consumption – three days of test flights in Frankfurt with the DLR ATRA research aircraft for a new active noise abatement project

26. September 2016

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.

DLR at InnoTrans 2016: 'Talking' rails, an innovative crash concept and the train design of the future

16. September 2016

Researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrums für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will be showcasing current research projects with the objective of making rail transport faster, more efficient, safer and more comfortable at InnoTrans, the world's largest trade fair for train and transport technology. The fair will be held from 20 to 23 September in Berlin.

EMSec – Maritime security

9. September 2016

Four days and four cases that pose a threat to maritime security – in several scenarios that took place between 5 and 9 September 2016, the EMSec joint project (Echtzeitdienste für die Maritime Sicherheit - Security; Real-Time Services for Maritime Security) was able to successfully demonstrate research findings from the last three years.

Hijacked ferries, searching for a man overboard and drifting popcorn

2. September 2016

In the Situation Centre, an alarm flashes on the screen – a passenger ferry has changed its planned course for no apparent reason. The AIS (Automatic Identification System) signal eventually disappears from the display. By now, all ship-specific information must have been requested and compared in order to quickly clarify the situation and take immediate action.
