25th anniversary of the D-2 mission – precursor to German and European research on the ISS

26 April 2018Hans Schlegel and Ulrich Walter, together with the United States crew members of the German-US Spacelab mission, still remember 26 April 1993 vividly: “For me personally, preparing and carrying out the D-2 mission is among the most exciting and intense experiences of my 66 years,” says Hans Schlegel, who was the payload specialist of the D-2 crew. His fellow astronaut Ulrich Walter summarises the mission with the US Spacelab research laboratory as follows: “If I were to organise the most effective research mission with the best possible crew for the job today, I would do it exactly the same way.”

An aircraft for future flight research: DLR and Dassault sign purchase contract for the flight test vehicle iSTAR

25 April 2018 | On 25 April 2018, at the Berlin Air Show ILA 2018, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and Dassault signed the purchase contract for a Falcon 2000 LX twinjet in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The agreement involves the delivery of the aircraft and  its conversion into the flight test vehicle iSTAR (in-flight Systems and Technology Airborne Research) by 2020. With iSTAR, it is possible to test (in real conditions) the flight characteristics of newly designed, real or virtual aircraft within the iSTAR flight envelope, including the in-flight simulation of unmanned systems. In addition, iSTAR will serve as test bed in the classic fields of aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, structures, propulsion, flight control and flight guidance.

Research aircraft, uncrewed flight, experiments for the Space Station and an Antarctic greenhouse

20 April 2018 | The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will present its latest projects and research results at the ILA Berlin Air Show from 25 to 29 April 2018. Again one of the largest institutional exhibitors in 2018, DLR will provide fascinating insights into its current research on an approximately 700-square-metre stand in Hall 4, in the Space Pavilion, on the stand of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in Hall 2, and at the ILA CareerCenter in Hall 1. DLR will also use the outdoor area at ILA to showcase a large part of its research fleet – with various helicopters and aircraft – including its largest fleet member, the A320 ATRA, as well as a variety of experimental aircraft for uncrewed flight.

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is contributing to ILA with exhibits at its 700 square metres stand in hall 4 (stand number 301), designed to tackle social challenges like sustainability, digitalisation, mobility, security, climate protection and innovation.

In collaboration with the European Space Agency ESA and the German Aerospace Industries Association, DLR Space Administration presents innovations made by German companies inside the Space Pavilion and on the stand of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Moreover, several aircraft of DLR´s research fleet will be on display. Participating in the ILA Career Center, DLR recruiting staff shows a way to successfully apply for jobs at DLR.
