Tailored Skin Single Duct (TSSD) concept contributes to cost-effective active flow control
Update on HLFC technology: The newly developed Tailored Skin Single Duct (TSSD) design for wing or empennage leading edges significantly reduces production costs, especially of the microperforated outer skin. Furthermore, new possibilities for cleaning and maintenance are opened up by its complete dismantlability.
The thrust chamber as part of a rocket engine is one of the most highly stressed components. Therefore, it has a great influence on the performance, reliability and cost of a launcher system. The combination of modern composite materials with innovative design concepts and cooling methods within the framework of Black Engine technology promises advantages in terms of simplified production, reliability and reusability.

Project Urban Rescue
4 February 2020 - The project Urban Rescue deals with different rotorcraft configurations (helicopters and eVTOLs) which are necessary for urban rescue scenarios.
First HLFC single-chamber concept wind tunnel tested
19 December 2019 - Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) have now taken another major step in this area, having recently tested a new system for hybrid laminar flow control (HLFC) for the first time.
