13 October 2009
The department OS designs, develops, manufactures and runs optical sensors systems for applications in Earth remote sensing, planetary research, traffic research and in commercial areas. It realizes systems and sup systems in space and traffic applications providing management and system engineering support.
In the area of space research OS participates in different planetary projects. The focuses of this work are contributions to scientific experiments in remote sensing of planetary surfaces and atmospheres by cameras and spectrometers.
One of the most important Private Public Partnership (PPP) projects of DLR is the RapidEye project. Within that project the OS team has to develop many space qualified components.
In 1999 DLR decided to add a division devoted to the subject of transportation in order to develop a new, promising field of competence. Using the experience in aerospace and energy technologies DLR focuses on a holistic approach encompassing various modes of transportation to provide sustainable mobility. Optical Information Systems contributes on this topic by sensorics and electronics, algorithms and software development as well as calibration.
The department Optical Information Systems (OS) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has special knowledge in the field of optical information systems for aerospace technologies. Os has sound expertise on camera-/spectrometer technology, high speed low noise A/D conversion, signal theory, image processing/capturing, project management and storage technology of large data volumes. In general the aerospace technologies are mainly on the technological edge.
