ATEK Flight Experiment - Propulsion Technologies and Components of Launcher Stages
The flight experiment ATEK (Propulsion Technologies and Components of Launcher Stages) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR e.V.) consists of Health-Monitoring-Systems for critical launcher components and a hybrid payload structure. Also a MAPHEUS-8 payload consisting of several biological and material science experiments belongs to the ATEK flight experiment.
AeroGust - Aeroelastic Gust Modelling
AeroGust (Aeroelastic Gust Modelling) is a collaborative research project between industry and academia funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement number 636053.
AHRES/ATEK: Software Development for Hybrid Rocket Engine Design
As part of the projects AHRES (Advanced Hybrid Rocket Engine Simulation) and ATEK (Antriebs-TEchnologien für Kleinträger) the German Aerospace Center is developing software for the layout of an entire hybrid rocket engine including subsystems within 100 days. In addition, this tool enables the design of solid rocket engines. A designated test bench for these engines is used for validation purposes.
ELTON_SST - Estimation of Landing and Take-Off Noise of SuperSonic Transport
Since a few years the interest in supersonic travel is increasing. However, certification standards for supersonic civil aircraft have yet to be defined by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization). The DLR-project ELTON_SST (Estimation of Landing and Take-Off Noise of SuperSonic Transport) was established to support with scientific data in order to evaluate the noise performance of potential supersonic civil aircraft.
The Go4Hybrid project aims to foster aeronautics RTD work in Europe by recognising merits and achievements of previous and existing EU projects in the field of turbulence research. Aiming at the mitigation of the “Grey Area” problem in hybrid RANS-LES methods and thus at improving the confidence in the use of turbulence resolving simulation methods, Go4Hybrid will allow for enhanced design processes in the aeronautical industry. Consequently, this will result in fewer design cycles, lower costs and reduced time-to-market of challenging future aircraft designs.
KonSENS - Innovative software methods for flow simulations around virtual aircraft
Numerical simulation is one of the key technologies enabling a fully digital description of aircraft. Thus, the provision of multi-disciplinary simulation tools is an important element on the way towards a virtual product. Within the DLR-project KonSENS, the Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology evolves innovative software methods for flow simulations around virtual aircraft.
LNATRA - Retrofittable technologies for aircraft noise reduction
Whereas new development and market entry often takes decades for newly designed quieter aircraft, noisereducing modifications offer short or mediumterm prospects for change, and can take effect much more quickly. This is what makes the LNATRA project so important.
MEPHISTO - Militärische Forschung zu Verfahren und Technologien für den Gesamtentwurf von UAVs
Ziel des DLR-Projekts Mephisto ist die Entwicklung einer Gesamtentwurfsfähigkeit die sämtliche Disziplinen des Fluggeräteentwurfs umfasst und ein hohes Maß an Flexibilität bezüglich der konfigurativen Gestaltung vorhält.
NACOR - Aerodynamic and aeroacoustic design and evaluation of the RACER compound helicopter
As part of the European CleanSky2 research initiative Airbus Helicopters is developing the RACER compound helicopter demonstrator. The DLR-Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology and the french research establishment ONERA have now joined their skills in the NACOR core partner project to support Airbus Helicopters in the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic design of RACER.
RoDeO - Rotor Design und Optimierung
Bei der Auslegung von Windenergieanlagen müssen eine Vielzahl teils gegenläufiger Anforderungen aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen gegeneinander abgewogen werden. Die gleichzeitige Betrachtung der verschiedenen Anforderungen, ein sogenannter multidisziplinärer Entwurf, bietet dabei den Vorteil, dass die Wechselwirkungen zwischen den einzelnen Disziplinen von Beginn an berücksichtigt werden...
SimBaCon - Simulation Based Certification
Before entering the market, all types of industrial products must go through a process of qualification or approval by government agencies in order to prove that the applicable safety and environmental regulations are met. The virtualization of as many product development and operation processes as possible in the computer, which is necessary for this purpose, is a central research topic in all areas of DLR. To bundle these activities, DLR has launched the cross-sectional project "Simulation Based Certification" (SimBaCon).
SynergIE - Investigation of distributed hybrid-electric propulsions on short-range aircrafts
In the DLR partner project SynergIE, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the scientists investigate the overall system of a hybrid-electric short-range aircraft for up to 100 passengers with distributed propulsion on the wing in order to investigate and quantify potential efficiency improvements.
UTOPIAE - Early stage researchers for aerospace systems of the future
UTOPIAE is a European research and training network looking at cutting edge methods bridging optimisation and uncertainty quantification applied to aerospace systems.
VicToria – Virtual Aircraft Technology Integration Platform
The development, testing and production of new aircraft and helicopters is associated with considerable temporal and financial risks due to the product and manufacturing complexity. In order to accelerate the introduction of innovative technologies for more economical, more environmentally friendly and safer air vehicles and to better control the technological risks involved, DLR’s guiding concept "The Virtual Product" (LK6) aims at virtualizing the design, development and manufacturing processes, including the definition of an appropriate validation strategy.
