The Institute of Space Systems analyzes and evaluates complex space systems in technical, economic and socio-political terms. Furthermore, the institute develops innovative concepts for space missions with high international visibility.
Within the Department of System Analysis Space Segment, studies and developments of space systems (orbital & planetary) are performed on concept level under technical, economic as well as socio-political aspects. The studies carried out in the department serve as preparation for activities in the field of systems engineering and as decision-making aids for politics and program boards
To this end, the department operates the Concurrent Engineering Facility, CEF (Simultaneous Design Laboratory) as well as the Planetary Infrastructures Laboratory for the development of specialized habitat technologies. The research in the field of Human Spaceflight and here especially Bioregenerative Life Support Systems (BLSS) of planetary infrastructures and their habitats, will be deepened. The goal is to advance the progress of cutting-edge cultivation technologies and adapt these developments for applications in space.
In the frame of the new project EDEN LUNA the EDEN ISS Antarctica research laboratory will be reused, modified and connected to the ESA-DLR simulation facility LUNA, which will be established in Cologne, considering new design aspects and new lunar mission requirements.
