Internet From Space

Thousands of new Internet satellites are set to be launched into space in the coming years, promising connectivity for everyone, everywhere around the globe. However, the increasing activity in space also poses risks.

Parking robot STAN’s just getting the car

The parking robot STAN keeps order of the parking situation at Lyons and Gatwicks airports. It helps park and retrieve the cars to make life easier for passengers before and after the flight.

“Space at the top”: New Software Saves Time and Fuel

Traffic Aware Strategic Aircrew Request, or TASAR for short, is the joint research project run by the US space and aeronautics administration NASA and Alaska Airlines. Route and altitude optimization based on various real-time flight and weather data will help pilots save time and fuel.

Salty Plants for Clean Skies

The airline Etihad Airways is using the power of plants for fuel technology. With Salicornia, aircraft should fly more sustainably in the future, helping to reduce CO2 emissions.

Making the Logistics Industry More Attractive for Young Professionals

Logistics is comparatively unattractive for young professionals with an academic background. “Die Wirtschaftsmacher”, an initiative run by German logisticians, is aiming to change that.
