At the Hanover site, the newly established DLR Institute of Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing is primarily focused on research questions relating to the use of quantum technology and quantum sensors. The aim is to build expertise for future satellite missions, for example, for satellite-based Earth observation.
Satellite Geodesy and Inertial SensingWith the establishment of the Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hanover, DLR is enhancing its expertise in the field of application-oriented sensor technology for novel satellite missions, for example in the field of satellite-based Earth monitoring. The Institute will develop novel inertial sensors based on quantum technology and implement promising quantum optical methods for use in space. Applications range from miniaturised quantum sensors to satellite-supported measurements of natural phenomena on Earth, such as the investigation of ice mass losses or the effects of field irrigation on the availability of drinking water.
