Programme Safe and competitive operations
NLR helps governmental authorities, the aviation sector and society to ensure aviation operations remain competitive, now and in the future, and to make civil and military aviation, and society, safer.
This programme helps governmental authorities, the aerospace sector and society meet these challenges by making the aerospace sector in the Netherlands safer, more resilient and more cost-effective. We do this by offering insight into changes brought about by new technologies, e.g. for safety, operational concepts, organisation, regulations and oversight of aerospace safety. We also propose solutions for reducing costs in aviation operations, for expanding airspace capacity and for maximising the reliability and resilience of aviation operations, within societally acceptable limits. What’s more, on behalf of the ecosystem of space companies Clean Space and Space Traffic Management (STM), we explore issues that rapidly become a priority within national and international policy.
