DLR Nachrichten 118 - Special Edition Transport

November 2007

 DLR Nachrichten 118

Milestones in aeronautics and spaceflight – that is what is expected from DLR. After all, it is these two fields which form our name. Concluding the aerospace year with a special edition on transport may cause people to sit up and take notice. And so it should.

Transport is our most recent field of research; it is not yet ten years old. For the DLR transport researchers, progress has been racing ahead in the fast lane. New institutes, unique large-scale facilities, a modern structure, and practice-based partnerships are what shape transport at DLR. DLR transport researchers use these competencies, picking up on synergies between aerospace and transport in order to make mobility as efficient, safe, and environmentally-friendly as possible. The use of satellite data and monitoring environmental parameters from flying platforms are just two of many examples.

Transport researchers at DLR are clearing the way for mobility in the 21st century – a factor which is of fundamental importance for the development of our country and, given the growing level of traffic, something that should not be taken for granted. At DLR, the way ahead has therefore been cleared for precautionary research for the mobility of tomorrow. At the same time, this demonstrates the innovative powers of our scientists and engineers. The Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology is supporting us on our way. I am therefore very pleased that Michael Glos, the Federal Minister for Economics and Technology, is providing the foreword to this issue of DLR Nachrichten.
