    At DLR engines are investigated in various ways

    At DLR en­gines are in­ves­ti­gat­ed in var­i­ous ways

    May 25, 2022 
    The en­gine is the heart of the air­craft's propul­sion sys­tem. At DLR, it is put through its paces: dig­i­tal­ly on the com­put­er and in re­al life on test bench­es such as the M2VP (mul­ti­stage twin-shaft ax­i­al com­pres­sor test bench) at the In­sti­tute of Propul­sion Tech­nol­o­gy in Cologne.

    Video: Évo­ra Molten Salt Plat­form (EM­SP) – The next gen­er­a­tion of so­lar ther­mal parabol­ic trough pow­er plants

    May 25, 2022 
    Length: 00:01:28
    Parabol­ic trough pow­er plants con­vert so­lar en­er­gy in­to heat and then in­to elec­tric­i­ty. To do this, they con­cen­trate sun­light with long mir­ror troughs ar­ranged in rows. Us­ing so­lar pow­er they heat a ther­mal trans­fer medi­um, which can then be used im­me­di­ate­ly or stored for lat­er.

    Successful ‘Moon landing’ using the DLR robotic motion simulator

    Suc­cess­ful ‘Moon land­ing’ us­ing the DLR robot­ic mo­tion sim­u­la­tor

    April 6, 2022 
    Length: 00:05:59
    Eu­ro­pean Space Agen­cy (ESA) as­tro­naut Rober­to Vit­tori has test­ed var­i­ous lu­nar land­ing ma­noeu­vres for the first time in the flight deck of the ‘DLR Robot­ic Mo­tion Sim­u­la­tor’. The mo­tion sim­u­la­tor was de­vel­oped at the DLR In­sti­tute of Sys­tem Dy­nam­ics and Con­trol and al­lows for ex­treme tilt an­gles and ma­noeu­vres. The ex­per­i­ment is part of the ESA project ‘Hu­man-in-the-Loop Flight Ve­hi­cle En­gi­neer­ing for Ex­plo­ration Mis­sions’. With­in this project, tech­nol­o­gy stud­ies are be­ing car­ried out for crewed land­ings at the Moon’s South Pole.The main goals are to eval­u­ate hu­man-ma­chine in­ter­faces and as­sis­tance func­tions for space­craft. DLR re­searchers are al­so study­ing how the con­di­tions and ef­fects of mo­tion that oc­cur in low­er grav­i­ty can best be sim­u­lat­ed on Earth.
