As part of Technische Universität München’s department of mechanical engineering, we are devoted to analyzing and modifying the dynamic characteristics of aerial platforms. Our passionate team is committed to mature cutting edge technologies that are required to incept the flight system behaviour of tomorrow. During the last years we have acquired all the experience, which is needed along the whole process of making control ideas fly. This includes modeling and system identification, controller design and implementation in real aircraft.
We can also make your visions fly and are looking forward to getting in touch with you.
Our research areas are guidance and control of manned and unmanned aircraft; simulation, parameter identification and flight safety; trajectory optimization; sensors, navigation and data fusion; and avionics and safety critical systems. The research infrastructure includes several flight simulators, test rigs, and manned and unmanned aircraft. We have established important partnerships and synergies with top research institutions and leading industrial players in the field of aerospace.
Our ultimate goal is the development and the application of highly sophisticated approaches tailored to real world applications and products, as well as to the demanding challenges of tomorrow.
We want to share our fascination with you! In our lectures we prepare future engineers for upcoming challenges. We believe that theory must always go hand in hand with practical applications. Therefore, the young engineers gain hands-on experience in our lab courses, for example by using our state-of-the-art simulators and flying platforms. With a multitude of available student theses, the students have the opportunity to get an even deeper insight into current research and to contribute to the state of the art.
We also host the Forum Munich Aerospace, a public series of talks on ground breaking aerospace topics given by renowned international speakers.
