BMWi ILA Future Lab EXHIBITION
BMWi ILA Future Lab EXHIBITION

The Future Lab Exhibition features cutting-edge technologies in space and aviation. The exhibits are taken from research projects co that showcase the strength and competitiveness of the German Aerospace sector in four distinct areas of innovation:

DIGITALIZATION AND CONNECTIVITY

The megatrend of digitalization in industry has also reached the aerospace sector. Innovative digital solutions enable us to take new approaches – from virtual development to predictive maintenance and optimised use of airspace.

DISRUPTION/ DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION/ COMPETITIVENESS

The strong innovative capabilities of Germany’s aviation industry ensure that it remains internationally competitive. But beyond this, new, innovative ideas and disruptive business models are key to safeguarding its technological lead and to creating value added and good job opportunities for the future.

ECO-EFFICIENCY

Sustainability is a crucial issue for the future of society and industry. We need green innovation if we are to cope with future growth in traffic whilst also preserving natural resources.

SPACE FOR EARTH

Space technologies allow to identify and to document changes in the land surface, oceans and atmosphere on a continuous basis. Satellites provide vital services for our economy and society. Digitalization, automation, commercialization and miniaturization are transforming space activities. Recent trends like 3D printing of parts and rising data transfer rates enable new business models in space (the new space economy).
