Aviation Infrastructure and Atmospheric Research
"The aviation industry relies on perpetual technological innovation. Our mission is to to contribute to the industry in such a way that this remains the same in the future."
Prof. Dr. Michel Guillaume, Head of the Centre for Aviation
The field of expertise Aviation Infrastructure and Atmospheric Research deals with the organization of airspace and the application of measurement and simulation methods in atmospheric sciences.
In the area of infrastructure, research is conducted on topics such as the digitization of aviation communication, navigation and airspace monitoring systems for optimized airspace utilization. Furthermore, large amounts of data are systematically investigated using machine learning approaches to characterize collision risks and the influence of wake vortices.
The field of atmospheric sciences focuses on measuring and simulating the environmental impact of conventional and alternative sustainable fuels. Likewise, the impact of aviation on climate and vice versa is researched.
