NLR supports Defence, the aviation industry, MRO and maintenance companies and airlines in the development and application of innovative, sustainable solutions for maintenance, inspection and repair. We are developing techniques for predicting and determining maintenance needs and techniques for sustainable repairs. Other areas of focus include organisational processes and the training of maintenance personnel. In this way, NLR wants to contribute to the optimisation of the material availability and the cost effective use of aircraft, helicopters, drones, wind turbines and other complex systems. Through this, we help to improve the operational effectiveness of the armed forces and the competitive position of businesses.
