Maritime traffic engineering
The maritime traffic system is an essential basis for the economic development, competitiveness, and prosperity for Germany as well as Europe. The world seaborne trade continued to grow in 2011 with 4% and achieved a total transport volume of goods in the order of 8.7 billion tons.
To meet the challenges of future Air-Traffic Management (ATM), aeronautical communication and navigation technologies are currently modernized. In communications, the air-ground communications standard LDACS (L-band Digital Aeronautical Communications System) is under development. The main goal of the DLR internal project LDACS-NAV (LDACS Navigation) is to advance the LDACS technology candidate LDACS1 to include navigation functionality. The feasibility of this approach is proved by in-flight measurements.
LOCL: Lunar Optical Communications Link
In September 2013, NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment (LADEE) spacecraft was launched with the main scope of collecting information about the lunar atmosphere. The spacecraft also hosts the Lunar Laser Communications Demonstration (LLCD), which has successfully demonstrated bidirectional communications based on 1550 nm laser technology and PPM Modulation.
MONALISA 2.0 aims at contributing to a continuous improvement and development of efficient, safe and environmentally friendly maritime transport in the European Union by implementation of a series of measures in accordance with the EU's transport policies.
MONitoring of the Ionosphere by innovative Techniques, coordinated Observations and Resources. The main goal of MONITOR is to design, develop, deploy and operate a system for collection, processing and archiving of ionospheric observation data.
Multi-Scale Ionosphere Model from Combination of Modern Satellite observation Techniques. The MuSIK project aims at developing methods for imaging the three-dimensional electron distribution of the ionosphere/plasmasphere systems.
NEXT-OBP-GEOSat (NEXT On-Board Processing Unit für GEOSatelliten)
Durch eine Netzcodierung an Bord eines Satelliten (in einer On-Board Processing Unit) erweitert sich das Spektrum der Anwendungsmöglichkeiten der Netzcodierung für die Satellitenkommunikation erheblich. Im Projekt NEXT-OBP-GEOSat soll eine Nutzlast für einen Kommunikationssatelliten entwickelt werden, mit der neben dem „Network Coding“ zwei weitere Kommunikationsexperimente durchgeführt werden können.
Precise and integer Localisation and Navigation in Rail and Inlandwater Traffic. Mobility of people and transport of goods are important for a smoothly functioned society. These also significantly affect the quality of living and the competiveness of the economic system. Railway and inland water transportation become more important particularly with regard to current ecological and economical matters.
Processing Russian and European EARTH observations for earthQUAKE precursors Studies (PRE-EARTHQUAKES) A large scientific documentation is to-date available about the appearance of anomalous space-time patterns of geophysical parameters measured from days to week before earthquakes occurrence.
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is developing a Railway Collision Avoidance System (RCAS), a 'safety overlay' system which can be deployed on top of any existing safety infrastructure in train networks.
The main objective of this activity is to design and develop a software based validation platform implementing and fully validating key functions of the DVB-RCS Next-Generation Standard.
