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.
