18. Oktober 2016Am 13. Oktober 2016 informierten sich Archäologen des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts (DAI) und andere mit archäologischen Ausgrabungen befasste Wissenschaftler über die Arbeiten des EOC und die Möglichkeiten der Fernerkundung. Es ist bereits der zweite Workshop dieser Art in Oberpfaffenhofen.
17 October 2016Since 2007 and 2010, the German TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X satellite missions have been leaving their mark on the international research scene in the form of unique earth observation data. Scientists from all over the world gathered at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen to attend one of the periodic "TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X Science Meetings" in order to share the results the obtained by using these data and to formulate specifications for future remote sensing technologies.
14 October 2016Over 1.5 million children and their families are currently being supported in over 130 countries worldwide by the humanitarian aid organisation SOS Children’s Villages International. So that this organisation can offer more effective support also in areas affected by natural disasters like floods, earthquakes and forest fires, the Center for Satellite Based Crisis Information (ZKI) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen is helping SOS Children’s Villages International to develop concepts for emergency and disaster response.
10 October 2016On 09 October 2016, DLR Oberpfaffenhofen again opened its doors to allow enthusiastic fans of aeronautics and space activities a look behind the scenes.
05 October 2016Year after year the world’s largest festival throws Munich into an exceptional state. At such mass events, on-the-spot organisers, security staff and rescue teams rely on having quick access to situational information, also from the air. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) shows how this can be done using an airborne approach, flying over the Oktoberfest with DLR’s Dornier DO 228-212 research aircraft and photographing it with a DLR camera system.
05 October 2016The new three-dimensional map of Earth has been completed. Mountain peaks and valley floors across the globe can now be seen with an accuracy of just one metre. The global elevation model was created as part of the TanDEM-X satellite mission; it offers unprecedented accuracy compared with other global datasets and is based on a uniform database. The approximately 150 million square kilometres of land surface were scanned from space by radar sensors. "TanDEM-X has opened up a whole new chapter in the field of remote sensing.
