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'.
