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.
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.
Logistics is comparatively unattractive for young professionals with an academic background. “Die Wirtschaftsmacher”, an initiative run by German logisticians, is aiming to change that.
From a bold idea to a global industry: Commercial Hyperloop systems will soon be used not only in the USA.
NASA and DLR Design Challenge: Fresh, eco-friendly ideas for the aviation of tomorrow and the aircraft of the future.
Connected Drones is an innovative solution for the safe integration of drones into the aviation system. The system has now been awarded the German Mobility Award 2018.
Loon, a subsidiary of Google's parent company Alphabet, is working together with the telecommunications provider Telkom Kenya and wants to use the balloons commercially in Africa for the first time in 2019.
International air traffic is to grow CO2-neutrally from 2020 onwards. E-fuels can contribute to this.
Rather than creating superhumans for production, exoskeletons are intended to leverage physical ergonomics to facilitate work for employees and protect them against making harmful movements that can lead to diseases of the musculoskeletal system in the medium and long term.
From Geneva to St. Gallen and from Basel to Lucerne, an underground tunnel system measuring a total of 450 kilometers in length is to be built.
Automated flying objects that generate green electricity economically at heights of several hundred meters: Start-ups like EnerKite, Ampyx, X-Wind and Makani are experimenting with new types of airborne wind power systems.
The OMEGA analysis tool supports Lufthansa Cargo with climate protection. Even more accurate evaluation of the flight data helps sustainably increase the efficiency of flight operations.
Self-navigating flying devices are considered a feasible transport concept for the future. The world’s first ever test operation with autonomous air taxis has been launched in Dubai.
Through its “Mission 2050: Zero Emissions” campaign, the Deutsche Post DHL Group intends to demonstrate how logistics businesses can help protect the climate. The objective of this new strategy is to reduce all emissions relating to transport to zero by 2050.
The goal of the international air transport industry is ambitious: Global air traffic should achieve carbon-neutral growth by 2020 and reduce net carbon emissions by 50% from 2005 to 2050.
Strategic sustainability management is becoming more and more important in the transport and logistics sector, and there are several reasons for this: greater environmental awareness among the general public, increasing pressure on costs in the use of resources as well as legal requirements.
The lower a plane’s frictional resistance in the air, the lower its consumption of fuel. That’s why the aviation industry has been researching how aircraft surfaces can be given an aerodynamically optimized design for several years now.
