AVIATION meets SPACE
Fraunhofer Institutes want to strengthen their cooperation in AVIATION and SPACE
From 20th to 21st of July 2017 Dr. Jungkunz was invited by the Fraunhofer SPACE alliance. The Fraunhofer SPACE alliance combines the technological expertise of 15 institutes to offer a central contact for system solutions to the aerospace industry and to public funding agencies such as the ESA or the European Commission.
The exchange with institute representatives of the Fraunhofer SPACE alliance aimed to present the AVIATION Group of Fraunhofer TRANSPORT alliance, as well as to discuss space technology, political and environmental factors, market changes and potential opportunities using complementary institute competencies in AVIATION and SPACE.
Despite the new market entries, the United States continues to be in the driving seat of expanding civil space activities. The serial production of satellites is becoming increasingly important and system solutions for improved tracking & tracing of space scrap contribute significantly to improve the economic visibility of satellite solutions.
Taking the complementary institute competences in the aerospace industry into consideration, the participants emphasized on the good success prospects particularly for system solutions for SPACE applications.
