DLR is the national aeronautics and space research center of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its Institute of Communications and Navigation develops and investigates new systems and methods for radio transmission and positioning. These are widely used in broadcasting multimedia contents as well as for internet connection of airplanes and remote areas. In satellite navigation the Institute puts emphasis on the verification, support and evolution of the European Satellite Navigation System Galileo. Using latest optical technologies for synchronization, communications and ranging the institutes develops the system KEPLER – a novel generation of satellite navigation systems. Besides system development the institute is active in developing technologies for safety-critical applications, which require a reliable and robust positioning and/or timing information, and for positioning in urban canyons, indoors and other challenging environments. The institute operates several verification and analysis facilities and is engaged in relevant standardization and expert groups.
