The Aerospace Industry in Berlin-Brandenburg
The capital region: competence center for aviation, aerospace and drones
The capital region is Germany’s third-largest aerospace competence center. Here, the technical excellence extends to more than just the traditional area of aviation that was founded by Otto Lilienthal over 120 years ago, but also to space and the relatively recent discipline of drone technologies.
Leading European location in areas of the aviation industry
Brandenburg in particular is home to major players in the aviation industry. In this respect, the region is particularly specialized in the fields of:
- engine development and manufacturing,
- light aircraft construction, and
- aircraft maintenance and repair.
The region is among Europe’s leading locations in the development and manufacture of engines.
The market movers in the Berlin aviation sector primarily possess expertise in:
- the use of renewable energies for air transport,
- software development for aircraft and aviation infrastructures,
- the development and production of electroacoustic components used in aviation.
Regional drone technologies are taking the market by storm
Unmanned airborne systems for civilian purposes now complement the more established activities, and this market segment is characterized by a wide, dynamic range of applications and services. Over 60 actors in the areas of research, development and application have contributed to the capital region becoming one of the leading locations for unmanned aviation.
Vision for the future: Berliners fly to the moon
The segment of microsats has traditionally shaped the regional space sector. Regional players manufacture complete small satellites.
A growing number of Berlin-based start-ups are conquering this young market under the heading ‘New Space’.
Over 70 companies, training centres and research centres at home in the capital region are reaching for the stars. Their diverse expertise and specialisations create an integral, interdisciplinary, and regional competence center for space technologies and applications.
