The Institute of Air Transportation Systems at DLR's Hamburg site.

The Institute for Air Transport Systems has established a system competence at DLR that enables reliable statements to be made about the air transport system and its subsystems. In this way, the Institute positions itself as Europe's leading authority in the conception, analysis and evaluation of new technologies and processes of the air transport system and its subsystems.

DLR Air Transportation Systems stands for research and teachings on the understanding of the system complexities in air transport.The research portfolio comprises of concepts, preliminary designs and the optimization of sub systems such as future aircraft configurations, as well as the simulation and assessment of entire air transportation systems with respect to economical and ecological sustainability.
