Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e. V. (DLR)

Linder Höhe
51147 Cologne

Short description

DLR is Germany s national research centre for aeronautics and space. Its extensive research and development work in aeronautics, space, transportation and energy is integrated into national and international cooperative ventures. As Germany s Space Agency, the German federal government has given DLR responsibility for the forward planning and implementation of the German space programme as well as international representation of Germany s interests. Aeronautics and space make substantial contributions to the way we live today. Aviation guarantees our global mobility and satellites enable worldwide communication. Remote sensing generates data about our environment, while the exploration of space leads to new knowledge about the origin and development of the Solar System, its planets, and, hence, about the creation of life. Moreover, key industries, including materials technology, medicine and software engineering, all profit from innovations made by DLR in the fields of aeronautics and space. DLR’s mission thus comprises: * exploration of the Earth and the solar system * research aimed at protecting the environment * development of environmentally-friendly technologies to promote mobility, communication and security.
