The Institute works together with internal and external partners within various cooperations, as the wide thematic range in this field requires a constant exchange both with operators and basic researchers from widely varying disciplines. Furthermore, newly developed ATM concepts must be deployable worldwide in standardized form.
Within the DLR, the Institute works permanently with other DLR institutes and facilities. In industrial and subsidized projects, the Institute cooperates with external partners from industry and research. In addition, it is involved in international committees and networks.
