New knowledge, technology and very smart solutions are required to combine
the growing demands on tranport with the limited resources of our planet. Solar energy and wind energy play an important role in ensuring our future. They are both the result
of aerospace technology.
This group addresses a huge range of objectives:
- Efficient, safe, sustainable and quiet aircraft
- Substitution of fossil fuel
- Development of insect-sized unmanned aircraft
- Engineering small satellites
- Efficient spacecraft which can take-off as normal airplanes
- Rocket technology for supporting space discovery
- Research at the International Space Station.
