Our projects are references to our past and current achievements, which we are allowed to talk about. We are pleased to be able to work with strong partners to push the technological boundaries of aviation!


  • In the H2finity project, scalable hybrid-electric powertrains for drones and small aircraft based on fuel cells will be researched and tested. Project partners in H2finity are Teccon, ZAL and Thelsys. The project is co-funded by IFB Hamburg
  • In a pragmatic and practical approach, an airworthy and certifiable technology is to be developed that can be used quickly and directly for a wide variety of aircraft and applications after the end of the project
  • A drone with a take-off weight of 28 kg and a wingspan of 3.6 m, which is being developed, built and operated by mb+Partner, will serve as the test vehicle. The tested and optimized drive train will then be further developed to higher performance classes
  • The project's website gives further information


  • Within the project 5G-Telk-NF, remote operation and automation of the ground carriage will be further developed - a step that is crucial for the success of the technology
  • The aim is to use 5G technology to enable remote operation of the plant and thus ensure rapid responsiveness and efficient operation
  • Project partners include EurA AG, Leichtwerk Research, Hanseatic Aviation Solutions, Hanke Konsek, Breitbandnetz Gesellschaft, OffTech, Ibeo, TH and Uni Lübeck, GreenTech Campus and the municipalities of Tinningstedt, Enge-Sande, Leck and Klixbüll. The project is co-funded by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV)

  • The ElektRail project represents an important step for mb+Partner in expanding its existing unique selling points. The knowledge gained to date has been expanded and transferred to a 400 kg, electrically powered and autonomously flying small aircraft, whereby runway-independent operation in this weight class represents new technological territory.
  • German partners are Elektra Solar, Nordwig, DLR, RWTH Aachen, TUHH, Aircraft Design Certification, TÜV Rheinland, and Airbus Airborne Solutions. The project is co-funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK)
  • A cooperation with the Swedish partners Linköping University as well as MSB (Swedish Civil Protection) shall ensure an exploitation of the results beyond the borders of Germany

  • With the REALISE project, mb+Partner entered the first step of the realization phase for the GroLaS ground vehicle concept
  • REALISE stands for "Runway independent automatic launch and landing system" and pursued the development of a test facility for unmanned aircraft on a market-relevant scale
  • Partners were Nordwig, Hanseatic Aviation Solutions, RWTH Aachen, TUHH, Thelsys, DLR, TÜV Nord and Airbus. The project was co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
  • The website gives further information about the project

Airport 2030

  • The Airport 2030 project addressed approaches to improved ground processes that make a measurable contribution to enhancing the quality, overall performance, and environmental sustainability of the air transportation system
  • mb+Partner researched the implementation of a ground-based landing gear system for commercial aircraft called GroLaS (Ground-based Landing gear System), and obtained an international patent for the technology
  • Project partners were DLR-Lufttransportsysteme, DLR-Institut für Flugführung, DLR-Institut für Flughafenwesen und Luftverkehr, Institut für Telematik (TU Hamburg), Institut für Verkehrsplanung und Logistik (TU Hamburg), Institut für Technische Informatik Systeme (University of Hamburg), HAW Hamburg, Aero Design & Systems Group, Hamburg Airport, Siemens, Airbus Operations. The project was co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
  • The project's results are summarized here, the final report of the project is available on the DLR-website
