Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

DLR's Na­tion­al Ex­per­i­men­tal Test Cen­ter for Un­manned Air­craft Sys­tems will play a key role in fu­ture re­search and de­vel­op­ment on new UAS tech­nolo­gies.

DLR’s un­manned Au­tonomous Ro­tor­craft Test bed for In­tel­li­gent Sys­tems (su­per­AR­TIS) he­li­copter is be­ing used to in­ves­ti­gate how re­lief sup­plies for hard-to-reach dis­as­ter ar­eas can be quick­ly, cost-ef­fec­tive­ly and safe­ly de­liv­ered.

Through the national test centre DLR will pursue the following objectives:

  • strengthen research for unmanned aircraft systems
  • coordinate the network of nationwide test fields and reconcile the activities on an international level
  • act as a driving force for the integration of UAS into the airspace and develop new concepts for unmanned aircraft systems
  • support industry and the scientific community in technological areas and the verification process
  • function as an incubator and enabler for start-ups and SMEs
  • support government and public authorities in legislative and regulatory matters, as well as issues of public interest (safety, noise, etc.)
  • validate innovative aircraft concepts employing scaled demonstrators
