As the national aerospace research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany, DLR aligns its research to the economy’s need for innovative products and services while investing in forward-thinking technologies. It also offers its research and development capabilities directly to innovative companies – a form of cooperation that has already led to the development and successful market launch of numerous products.
In its role as a special topic prize sponsor in the sixth European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC), DLR is seeking ideas for products, services, and other entrepreneurial inventions that promise long-term benefits to the economy and public sector. In particular, these include applications that require exact timing, satellite-based applications in the healthcare sector, new methods and applications offering improved signal verification and reduced sensitivity to interference, new processes and applications that use satellite signals to achieve highly precise positioning and rapid data distribution on the ground, and innovative applications for the Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS).
The winners will have set themselves on a direct path to systematically implementing their ideas with the help of DLR’s scientific expertise and development network. There are three DLR vouchers to be won, granting a total of €150,000 in services their holders can use to perfect their innovations (feasibility studies, conception studies, prototype development, business development, and more).
Along with creative ideas for products and services, DLR is looking for fields of use in which one or more of the qualities “highly precise”, “interference-free”, and “secure” are an absolute must. Innovative character and added value for the end user will be the key criteria.
Application ideas for the DLR special topic prize can be submitted until July 31, 2009 at http://galileo-masters.eu/index.php?anzeige=special_prizes_dlr.html .
The ESNC is intended to further strengthen international collaboration among these regions, particular with regard to the development of applications and services made possible by the European satellite navigation system Galileo. The competition is held under the patronage of the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology and is supported by Messe München GmbH. The main winners of the ESNC – the GALILEO Master, the special prize winners, and the 17 regional winners – will be recognised at a state reception to be held at the Munich Residenz on October 21, 2009.
About the German Aerospace Center (DLR)
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aerospace research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its extensive research and development work is carried out in national and international cooperations. In addition to its own research, DLR serves the German government as the space agency responsible for the planning and execution of the country’s aerospace activities, as well as the international protection of interests. DLR is also the umbrella organisation of Germany’s largest project management agency.
Around 6,000 people work for DLR at 28 institutes and other facilities in thirteen locations in Germany – Cologne (executive headquarters), Berlin, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Göttingen, Hamburg, Lampoldshausen, Neustrelitz, Oberpfaffenhofen, Stuttgart, Trauen, and Weilheim. DLR also maintains foreign offices in Brussels, Paris, and Washington, D.C.
DLR’s mission covers the exploration of the earth and solar system, research into environmental preservation and environmentally friendly technologies, and optimizing mobility, communications, and security. Its research portfolio in the business fields of aviation, aerospace, transport, and energy extend from fundamental research to the innovative applications and products of tomorrow. The scientific and technological expertise obtained by DLR thus aids in strengthening Germany as an industrial and technological location. In addition, DLR operates major research facilities for its own projects and as a service for customers and partners. It also supports young scientists, provides sound advice to policymakers, and is a driving force in the regions surrounding its locations.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
