The institute's Department of Aviation and Space Psychology is located in Hamburg and is largely responsible for personnel selection and certain areas of behavioural training for operation staff (helicopter and fixed wing pilots, air traffic controllers, astronauts). The department also provides customers like airforces, civil flight operations or airtraffic control organisations with psychometric methods if they want to create their own selection system (see Staff Selection). Scientific research goes along with the development of applications.
