Projects / Guid­ing con­cepts

Within DLR aeronautics research, six key concepts address the core challenges in air transport for safe and environmentally sustainable flight. They focus programmatic control on target products and do this across discipline and institute boundaries. The aim is to pursue and implement key technologies together with industry within the framework of national guiding concepts and international programmes. This aim extends to the virtual integration of an innovative aircraft.

Scientists and engineers from various DLR institutes and research disciplines work closely together on innovations for aeronautics. They cover the entire air transport system, from individual components and the technical challenges of entire aircraft to the complex interplay of air traffic. The aim is to carry out a complete life cycle and technology assessment.
