Innovative concepts – remote monitoring of multiple airports

Dur­ing the tests in the DLR Re­mote Tow­er Lab­o­ra­to­ry, one con­troller han­dled the traf­fic at up to three air­fields si­mul­ta­ne­ous­ly.

Generic Cockpit Simulator (GECO) – supporting pilots by automating onboard processes

The Gener­ic Ex­per­i­men­tal Cock­pit (GECO) is a mod­u­lar fixed-base cock­pit sim­u­la­tor with in­ter­change­able flight-me­chan­i­cal mod­els. These are changed, de­pend­ing on the ap­pli­ca­tion re­quired.

The Institute of Flight Guidance in Braunschweig

Main build­ing of the In­sti­tute of Flight Guid­ance at DLR Braun­schweig.

The Institute of Flight Guidance is working on the development and application of future processes and technologies for the integrated airborne and ground-based guidance of aircraft. This means using airspace more flexibly and efficiently and enabling airports to optimise throughput, while minimising fuel consumption and environmental impact. To this end, the Institute examines all technical and operational processes on board aircraft and on the ground (air navigation services and airports). Special attention is paid to the changing role of the human operator.

Drone operations impacted by danger spot – City-ATM Phase 2
In the City-ATM project, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is working with partners to develop an airspace management and traffic control concept for the integration of new airspace participants, such as unmanned aerial vehicles or air taxis, into uncontrolled airspace.
