Digitalisation of Aeronautics

Al­ready in the de­sign phase of more ef­fi­cient air­craft, dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion opens up new ways of think­ing about the avi­a­tion sys­tem as a whole in or­der to in­crease its ef­fi­cien­cy and lat­er rev­o­lu­tionise the pre­cise and cost-ef­fec­tive main­te­nance dur­ing op­er­a­tion.

MRO 4.0 Application Centre in Hamburg

DLR re­ceived one mil­lion eu­ro from the City of Ham­burg for the con­struc­tion of a large-scale fa­cil­i­ty. By the end of 2019, the DLR In­sti­tute of Main­te­nance, Re­pair and Over­haul will have set up the MRO 4.0 Ap­pli­ca­tion Cen­tre. With the Ap­pli­ca­tion Cen­tre, DLR is cre­at­ing a plat­form in which part­ners from in­dus­try and sci­ence can con­duct joint re­search. Top­ics in­clude new main­te­nance tech­nolo­gies, pro­cess­es and strate­gies, dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion in air­craft main­te­nance and com­pre­hen­sive con­di­tion mon­i­tor­ing of sys­tems.

The Institute of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul in Hamburg researches processes and technologies for the more efficient operation of aircraft. This is done in close cooperation with partners from science and industry. The focus is on the optimisation, linking and automation of processes and novel and modular diagnostic, maintenance and modification technologies. Research is also being conducted into how these technologies affect the life cycle of aircraft. Core elements of these research topics are intensive digitalisation, interfaces between processes, and innovative technologies for data evaluation and visualisation. The practical implementation and linking of the processes will be researched and demonstrated within the framework of the 'Application Center MRO 4.0'.
