DLR

Cyber Security, Safety and Hi-Accuracy meet Autono-/-mation

DLR is looking for solutions that enable automation and autonomy with reliable Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) and strengthen PNT with smart approaches while providing maximum benefit to the user community.

Challenge

Precise, reliable and robust navigation – especially GNSS – is a core asset and a major driver of automation and autonomy.

DLR is looking for solutions that offer maximum benefit to the user community by triggering new applications and solutions to meet the needs of the real world for automated or autonomous systems. All ideas and innovations should contribute to further optimising both the operation and its development by strengthening existing approaches as well as with completely new thoughts.

Extended usage of GNSS requires reliable position services with appropriate:

  • Accuracy
  • Availability
  • Integrity
  • Continuity
  • Robustness against cyber security threats

With the scope to identify the problem, create a solution, overcome current limitations and prepare for the future.

Business cases should be:

  • A technical and application-oriented solution
  • Ready and robust
  • Made for the best usage of Galileo/GNSS
  • Moving towards automated & autonomous operation

Areas of particular interest are:

  • Applications of AI and smart processing for improved reliability and resilience in navigation
  • Application of GNSS and further navigation systems in automated or autonomous systems
  • Resilient PNT for critical infrastructures
  • Usage of mid- and low-cost non-GNSS sensors for deep integration with GNSS providing resilience and integrity with sensor diversity
  • Providing reliable and robust high-accuracy PNT by GNSS, non-GNSS sensors and new service (e.g. Galileo HAS)
  • Fusing GNSS data with other sensors and augmentation for resilient PNT with improved safety and security
  • Threat detection and monitoring
  • Making GNSS receivers robust in challenging conditions
  • Mitigating cyber security threat

Ideas specifically addressing PRS, the Public Regulated Service within GALILEO, are not topic of the DLR Challenge.


Prizes 2020

5 man-month voucher* for DLR services

5 man-months voucher* for DLR services

to aid the further development of the solution, incl. technical support for research activities, access to testing and simulation facilities, expert advice, feasibility or concept studies & thus, support for eventual realisation

*A mutual agreement between the winner and DLR about the focus of work is required. The prize itself is a bundle of activities which are executed purely within DLR. There is no way to turn this in a cash prize to be paid to the winner or other external parties. While all contestants will demonstrate their innovation competence merely by participating, the winner will enjoy the added benefit having the 2020 DLR Challenge award on their record as a testament of quality.

Extra EUR 10,000 Cash Prize if your concept gets selected as Galileo Masters 2020 Overall Winner
Additional Prize
Chance to win one of six tailored Galileo Incubation prizes worth up to EUR 62,000 each
Additional Prize

About DLR

German Aerospace Center (DLR)

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is not just the aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany; it also combines its scientific work and technological developments in these areas with its expertise in energy, transport, security and digitalisation. In addition to its own research, in its capacity as a space agency, DLR is responsible for the planning and implementation of German space activities on behalf of the federal government. In addition, DLR serves as an umbrella organisation for one of Germany’s largest project management agencies.

In determining the focal points of its research, DLR is to a large extent guided by industry’s demand for innovative products and services. In addition, it invests in promising technologies and offers its research and development capacities to customers for their own use. Numerous products have been successfully developed in this way and launched on the market in cooperation with innovative enterprises. DLR employs approximately 8,400 people at 26 locations.
