Space agency signs digitisation deal

The DLR, Germany’s national space agency, has teamed up with Airbus and the French aviation research institute Onera to develop software to model computational fluid dynamics.

The three parties have signed an agreement to cooperate on capabilities for flow prediction, with the aim of providing a common platform for European researchers, the DLR announced on 21 June. They also committed to delivering “tested and industry-ready code containing the latest state-of-the-art features relevant to aeronautics”.

“At the DLR, we aim to advance the new trend of digitisation in aviation, and hence address the challenges that the European aircraft industry will face in the next decades. We welcome this opportunity of teaming up with Airbus and Onera to develop a common next-generation code,” said Rolf Henke, a member of the DLR’s executive board.
