Successful high-speed flight experiments with new sounding rocket configuration
1 July 2022
Reusable launch systems are exposed to high dynamic and thermo-mechanical loads during their return to Earth. The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has now successfully tested high temperature structures, advanced measurement techniques and design tools for the re-entry phase with the STORT (Schlüsseltechnologien für hochenergetische Rückkehrflüge von Trägerstufen – key technologies for high-energy return flights of launch stages) flight experiment.
More understanding of "simulation-based certification"
17 March 2022
In the DLR cross-sectional project "Simulation Based Certification" (SimBaCon), 15 DLR institutes and facilities have been working together on tools for digitized certification. The project has now ended very successfully after four years. The virtual final event took place on February 16 and 17 2022.
Quieter helicopters for greater operational safety
20 January 2022
Helicopters can take off and land vertically or hover in the air. This gives them a number of advantages over fixed-wing aircraft. The disadvantage is that they are relatively noisy. With that in mind, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is working with German Armed Forces Operations Command (Einsatzführungskommando der Bundeswehr; EinsFüKdoBw) to investigate how noise propagates from helicopters and what changes might be possible.
