Amongst others we work on the following main research topics:
A central aspect in research and education is considering the next higher level of integration. This is why for example innovative aerospace technologies researched at ILR are always virtually integrated into operational aircraft configurations and then evaluated. Respectively, the validation of new aircraft concepts or flight procedures is done within the context of the total air-transportation system. Amongst the different aerospace institutes and chairs at RWTH Aachen University the ILR takes and integral function.
