The range of activities of AI: Aerospace Institute mainly includes system investigations (e.g. studies for the development and evaluation of ISRU, NEO and Lunar and Martian exploration scenarios) and trend analyses (e.g. pay-off-, trade-off- and cost analyses for current and future space systems and missions), but also numerical simulations of complex dynamic processes (e.g. combustion in rocket motors) as well as feasibility investigations and development activities for new aerospace technologies and systems.
In addition, AI: Aerospace Institute is specialised in the development, manufacturing and qualification of demonstrators and prototypes for innovative system solutions. As a member of the local space industry network RIBB (Raumfahrtinitiative Berlin-Brandenburg), AI: Aerospace Institute has direct access to production, qualification and test facilities on highest international standards such as certified facilities for vibration, shock, thermal vacuum and radiation testing.
