Research Fields

The goal of our research is the development of technologies to improve safety and efficiency of air transportation and to reduce its environmental impact. We concentrate on the onboard systems of the aircraft while we always bear in mind their interaction with the higher level systems.

Test Equipment

Mainly conducting applied research, we frequently use technology demonstrators to evaluate the developed concepts and methods. Here the institute's test equipment consisting of full-flight simulators and other test rigs is introduced.
