The Consul General of India for South Germany Sugandh Rajaram visited the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen on 17 January 2019. The delegation was welcomed by Pascale Ehrenfreund, Chair of the DLR Executive Board, and Hansjörg Dittus, DLR Executive Board Member for Space Research and Technology. Both parties were pleased at the opportunity to meet and share thoughts in a personal setting, as India and DLR have been cooperating closely for more than 40 years. Dr Rajaram, who is responsible for the consular districts of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, has been in office since November 2016.

The bilateral discussions focused on the cooperation between DLR and the Indian space agency ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation). Already very successful, the technical workshops will continue and be expanded in future, especially in the areas of Earth observation and exploration. The guests were also given a tour of the DLR Earth Observation Center (EOC). Consul General Rajaram was particularly fascinated by the work conducted at the Center for Satellite Based Crisis Communication (ZKI). The Indian delegation concluded its visit to Oberpfaffenhofen with a tour of the German Space Operations Center (GSOC).
