DLR Logo - 1

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research center of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its extensive research and development work in aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation is integrated into national and international cooperative ventures. DLR is also responsible for the planning and implementation of Germany's space activities on behalf of the federal government. DLR is also the umbrella organisation for one of Germany's largest project management agencies.

DLR's mission comprises the exploration of Earth and the Solar System and research for protecting the environment. This includes the development of environment-friendly technologies for energy supply and future mobility, as well as for communications and security. DLR's research portfolio ranges from fundamental research to the development of products for tomorrow. In this way, DLR contributes the scientific and technical expertise that it has acquired to the enhancement of Germany as a location for industry and technology. DLR operates major research facilities for its own projects and as a service for clients and partners. It also fosters the development of the next generation of researchers, provides expert advisory services to government and is a driving force in the regions where its facilities are located.




The DLR Institute of Software Methods for Product Virtualization in Dresden conducts research in the field of computer science for the development of software for the description and realization of the virtual product in aeronautics. The goal is to base the product virtualization on high-quality, multi-disciplinary simulation methods and to bundle the growing virtualization know-how internally in close collaboration with colleagues from other aeronautic institutes. Based on the long-term requirements of the specialized institutes, this research expertise is to be further developed strategically and novel, innovative ways and opportunities for integrated digitization are to be demonstrated. The department of High Performance Computing researches benchmarks and evaluates new algorithms as well as programming and data models, with a focus on improving the efficiency of simulation software for current and future high-performance computing architectures. As a competence center the experts work together with other DLR institutes and contribute their know-how to tackle the challenges in the area of high-performance computing.
