DLR (CC-BY 3.0).
The project Urban Rescue deals with different rotorcraft configurations (helicopters and eVTOLs) which are necessary for urban rescue scenarios. At the DLR sites in Stuttgart and Augsburg an interdisciplinary structural design of the helicopter and eVTOL-configurations is investigated. Additional to the classical design it is focused on a crash design and the integration of manufacturing and production issues within the design phase. The linkage of design, manufacturing and production targets an overall optimized structural design. This design avoids unexpected and costly problems in the subsequent production of the rotorcraft structural parts.
