Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV)
The German Space Operations Center in Oberpfaffenhofen supports with its ground infrastructure the planned ESA ATV-missions.
BIRD - Bispectral InfraRed Detector
DLR's satellite BIRD is intended to detect high temperature events such as forest fires, volcanic activity as well as burning oil wells and coal seams. The performance of these newly developped bi-spectral infrared array sensors and other components are beeing evaluated for these tasks.
GRACE - Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment
The GRACE mission is a joint German-American project. The primary objective of the GRACE mission is to obtain accurate global models for the mean and time variable components of the earth´s gravity field.
The SAR-Lupe System consists of five identical satellites, which were launched in intervals of six months. It serves the German Federal Armed Forces as a national reconnaissance system for monitoring areas of interest.
