Conventional aircraft engines will be supplemented with modern, hybrid-electric, and electrically powered drives in the near future. The capital region’s various association projects and alliances, such as the Innovation Alliance for the Development of Low Emission Aircraft Engines (IBEFA) and the Lausitz Science Park of the BTU, where both the Center For Hybrid Electric Systems Cottbus (Chesco) as well as the DLR institutes and the PTX-Lab are working on exploiting the potential of these drives and their integration in modern aircraft concepts with appropriate system architectures. Engine manufacture, trialling and simulation Rolls-Royce, a worldwide leading manufacturer of engines, develops, produces, services and tests various models of aircraft turbine engines in the region. The MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg provides maintenance services for aircraft engines in the lower to middle thrust and power categories and carries out acceptance tests. Above all, an extensive innovative supplier landscape has developed in the region over the last years, with specific expertise in the areas of MRO, trialling, simulation, engineering and software development. Drones are taking off When it comes to unmanned flight systems (drones, air taxis, UAS) there is a broad and exciting range of possible uses and services. Alongside a diverse association structure, over 80 stakeholders from research, development and business have helped to make the capital region a location magnet for highly automated and autonomous flying in our airspace. Into orbit and to the moon The capital region is among the leading actors in the rapidly growing segment of New Space technologies and applications. Established space travel experts, numerous startups and scientific institutes in the industry come together to form a comprehensive competence centre for everything related to miniaturised satellites and sensors.
