The Institute of Structures and Design (BT) has its origins at Stuttgart Airport. The German Institute for Helicopters and Vertical Flight Technology (DSH) laid the foundations for today's BT at the airport in 1958 with its four departments for fl ight physics, transport industries, aerodynamics and flight mechanics. In 1969, the Institute BT emerged from the Department of Applied Flight Physics. Today, the research that began more than 50 years ago is continued at two locations according to the latest standards.
