The SAFER² project focuses on the integration of sensor technology and artificial intelligence to improve performance and reliability in various areas and includes five demonstrators.
The joint project TeTeAnt-H2 is concerned with achieving the simulation and measurement capability for hydrogen propulsion systems for CO2-free aviation. For this purpose, extensive measurements of a turbine rig are carried out, which are completed by flow-structure coupled simulations.
In the VOLARE² project, a lightweight chassis component for a Volocopter flying taxi is designed, manufactured and tested using 3D CFRP weaving technology.
In the D-Light (Digital Climate Neutral Light Aircraft) project, methods for the design and evaluation of small aircraft are being developed, relevant technology modules are being examined in the course of the project and these are being transferred into a digital mock-up (DMU). This will serve as a differentiated basis for a climate-neutral small aircraft with hydrogen propulsion.
Thermoplastic composites, thermoplastic advanced fibre placement (T-AFP), in-situ consolidation (ISC), continuous ultrasonic welding (cUS), resistance welding (RW), MFFD Project.
Within the framework of the ADAPT project, future propulsion technologies are to be evaluated. The focus here is particularly on hydrogen combustion.
The research project NEUTRON is investigating technologies, designs and materials that will enable the future use of hybrid-electric propulsion systems in helicopters.
As part of the project, methods and standards are being developed for the use and development of digital twins at DLR.
Since 2021, six DLR institutes and facilities have been working on the 3DCeraTurb project to realize novel turbine blades based on fiber-reinforced ceramics (CMC) and metallic 3D printing.
