The DLR site in Berlin

DLR Berlin-Adlershof

DLR Berlin

The DLR institute established at Berlin-Adlershof was founded in 1992 and is involved in all major European missions of planetary research venturing out into our Solar System.

DLR Berlin-Adlershof is involved with the NASA/ESA/ASI mission to Saturn and Titan, Cassini-Huygens. The institute played a key role in the development of the Rosetta comet mission and this effort continues with the Corot mission, searching for extrasolar planets.

With its HRSC camera on Europe's Mars Express mission, the institute makes a decisive contribution to the scientific programme of this special mission to the Red Planet. Yet, the Berlin scientists are not only involved in planning and preparing space missions. They also participate in missions after launch and evaluate scientific results.

The Institute of Transport Research, founded in 2001 with support of the Berlin state government, deals with transport system technologies.

The DLR Optical Information Systems department, home of the HRSC-AX airborne camera, and a number of other departments are also located at Berlin-Adlershof.
