The Berlin site of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), which was founded in 1992, concentrates on space and transport research. The site has made a name for itself primarily through its participation in the major planetary research missions: Cassini-Huygens to Saturn, the comet mission Rosetta and Corot, he first space mission dedicated to exoplanetary research. With the High Resolution Stereo Camera camera on board the European Mars Express mission, the DLR Institute of Planetary Research has made a decisive contribution to the scientific programme of the mission to the Red Planet. However, the DLR scientists from Berlin are not only involved in planning and preparing missions, but also in carrying them out and evaluating the scientific results.
In January 2001, research in the field of transport research began at the site. As pioneers for an environmentally and socially compatible transport system and management, the scientists and engineers are dedicated to cross-modal concepts and the use of state-of-the-art technologies. The Institute of Transport Research, the Institute of Transportation Systems and the Institute of Vehicle Concepts are working in Adlershof.
The Institute of Optical Sensor Systems concentrates on the conception, development, calibration, use and operation of optical sensor systems for applications in space, travel and traffic.
Established in January 2007, the DLR Institute of Space Systems operates a space simulation facility at the site. Its task is to test hardware for its suitability for use in space.
From the Earth Observation Center (EOC), the working group 'Optical Remote Sensing of Water' of the "Photogrammetry and Image Analysis" department is represented at the site. Furthermore, the DLR Project Management Agency is located in Berlin. The Engine Acoustics Department of the DLR Institute of Propulsion Technology is located in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
