Civil security research and dual-use

Civil security research at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) focuses on researching and developing solutions and technologies that ensure the protection of citizens and critical infrastructures from damage caused by natural disasters as well as major emergencies, threats from terrorism and organised crime.

These solutions help to increase the security of citizens and thus their quality of life and strengthen the civil security economy. A characteristic feature of this is a scenario- and capability-oriented approach. Realistic scenarios and required capabilities form the basis for developing practice-oriented solutions across focal areas and disciplines together with end users and companies, while taking social aspects into account.
