At the DLR site in St. Augustin in the Rhein-Sieg district, the new Institute for the Protection of Terrestrial Infrastructures focuses its research and development activities on the protection of critical infrastructures. The research objective is to develop suitable methods and tools to detect threats to critical infrastructures at an early stage and to be able to take the corresponding defensive measures. The institute is still under construction.
The Institute for AI Safety and Security is also located at the site. The Institute's management and administration are based there, as well as its three scientific departments Business Development and Strategy, Security-critical Data Infrastructure and Algorithms & Hybrid Solutions. Two more departments are located at the Ulm site.
