Die Sentinel%2d2A Satellitenbildaufnahme vom 11.2.2016 zeigt Dadaab, den größten Flüchtlingslagerkomplex der Welt und dessen Umgebung. Derzeit leben in den Camps ca. 328.000 Flüchtlinge

Earth observation for humanitarian aid

24. June 2016

Earth observation satellites fly at distances of up to several hundred kilometres from Earth and can provide detailed information that assists relief workers on the ground.

BIROS erfolgreich ins All gestartet

BIROS fire detection satellite successfully launched into space

22. June 2016

On 22 June 2016 at 05:55 CEST, the BIROS (Bi-Spectral Infrared Optical System) microsatellite was successfully launched into space from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India on board a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

DLR technology for robot-assisted surgery

21. June 2016

The surgeon sits at a console, while robotic arms perform his commands with high precision on the patient – making exact incisions, putting in screws or stitching severed veins in a tiny space. During the operation, the doctor can feel through the controls exactly what the instrument tips on the robot are doing, just as if he were holding them in his own hands.

PHAROS – successful demonstration of a system solution for catastrophe management during forest fires in Catalonia

12. May 2016

The Earth trembles, rivers burst their banks and tsunamis destroy coastal regions. Natural and man-made disasters make our high technology society ever more sensitive. The current disaster management systems have the drawback that they cannot be flexibly adapted to the respective situation. Hazards and disasters have a similar course but are nevertheless different. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has developed a system that takes this into account. PHAROS (Project on a Multi-Hazard Open Platform for Satellite Based Downstream Services) supports crisis managers, operations managers and relief workers in every phase of disaster response. The system is built as an open service platform and can be flexibly adapted to the circumstances at hand. Earth observation data, measurements from sensors, simulation tools and communication technologies are combined in a single platform.

Official opening of the Tri-band Ground Station at DLR in Neustrelitz

4. May 2016

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has initiated a new chapter in earth observation.

HALO flight test – turbulence, vibration and new techniques

4. May 2016

Aircraft should normally avoid turbulence and wake vortices. But test pilots and researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have deliberately flown into turbulence during flight experiments designed to test numerical models and a new real-time evaluation method that enables the instantaneous review of aeroelastic stability.

Sentinel-1B – Second eye of the Earth guardian in orbit

25. April 2016

Two eyes are better than one; this principle is also true for the two radar satellites that make up the Sentinel-1 mission. On 25 April 2016 at 23:02 CEST, the Sentinel-1B Earth observation satellite lifted off from Europe's spaceport in French Guiana on board a Soyuz launch vehicle.

Verfolgungsjagd bei Höchstgeschwindigkeit

On a high-speed train at night – DLR researchers develop train-to-train communication

19. April 2016

In the course of a measurement campaign conducted in Italy by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) transmission properties between the individual carriages of high-speed trains and the entire train were measured to develop systems that will enable reliable communication.

Earth as seen from space at the Gasometer Oberhausen

10. March 2016

When it comes to the best views of Earth, weather satellites usually have front-row seats. But now, and until 30 December 2016, everyone can enjoy this very special view of the Blue Planet at the Gasometer Oberhausen. The highlight of the 'Wonders of Nature' exhibit is a terrestrial globe 20 metres in diameter hovering from the 100-metre high tower of this imposing industrial monument.

Flying robots inspect and maintain robots

29. February 2016

Mobile inspection robots crawl over pipelines on magnetic wheels and identify critical points using special sensors. What sounds like science fiction has long since become reality, but the moment that these robots need to be serviced and inspected, it has not been possible to avoid human interaction.
