The In­sti­tute for the Pro­tec­tion of Mar­itime In­fras­truc­tures was found­ed in 2017 as one of sev­en new DLR in­sti­tutes and is head­ed by found­ing di­rec­tor Den­nis Göge at the site in Bre­mer­haven.

The In­sti­tute’s sci­en­tif­ic and tech­ni­cal ac­tiv­i­ties fo­cus on the re­silience of mar­itime in­fras­truc­tures. The ob­jec­tive of all its con­cepts, anal­y­ses, de­vel­op­ments and tests is to en­able mar­itime in­fras­truc­tures, as com­plex sys­tems – with sup­port from var­i­ous par­tic­i­pants, users and stake­hold­ers – to recog­nise and mit­i­gate threats, adapt to them and counter their ef­fects in a time­ly and ef­fi­cient man­ner.

The Institute’s research and development activities focus on the resilience of maritime infrastructures and maritime safety technologies. The objective of all of its concepts, analyses, developments and tests is to enable maritime infrastructures as complex systems – with support from various players, users and stakeholders – to recognise and prevent threats, adapt to them and counter their effects in a timely and efficient manner. The current research activities are focused on three missions. Firstly, they provide solutions to efficiently and effectively address global challenges such as security, mobility, the Energy Transition or changing values. Secondly, they provide security-related authorities and organisations with independent advice. In order to solve specific tasks, we further develop theoretical foundations, carry out simulations, build demonstrators and test them in a real environment together with their future users. All three missions should lead to a direct benefit for society as well as the economy.
