Space is currently undergoing a profound evolution in the context of New Space. In the future, cost efficiency will be a key driver of development. Large-scale production and reusability are currently the central approaches.
The aim at the ILR is to become active in space research both in the field of design and in the field of flight physics. On the one hand, a design competence for satellite systems will be developed in cooperation with the Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design. On the other hand, research on flow phenomena on launch vehicles will be continued in the first phase of the launch process.
