Industry in brief

As part of the world's third-largest civil aviation location, around 30 companies with around 800 employees are currently active in the production of supplier parts and in the engineering sector in the country. Products range from aircraft and cabin parts to coating of individual components, fire gas sensors, special hoses and special fixtures for assembly, as well as special research and development tasks. Major industry representatives include Mubea Aviation GmbH, RST Rostock System-Technik GmbH, AERO-Coating GmbH, Diehl Aerospace GmbH and AMAS Anlagenbau GmbH & AMAS Engineering GmbH.

Using the right thrust

With attractive funding programs, intensive research and development, qualified specialists and a productive industry network, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern lets your aviation investments take off.

  • Funding

    Technology, innovation and collaborative research are generously funded in MV. In addition, the acquisition and production costs of new assets are subsidized. The state provides up to 45 percent for the establishment of a business facility. As a full-service provider, we support you in applying for subsidies from MV and the EU. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Research and development

    Technical innovations and innovative research are driving the aviation industry forward. In the home of aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal, there are several institutes that are helping to shape this change. In the research and development landscape in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern related to aerospace, the focus is predominantly on lightweight construction, plastics technology, fiber and plastic composites, and new materials.

    The Fraunhofer Research Institution for Large Structures in Production Engineering IGP in Rostock is increasingly conducting research in the areas of materials and production engineering. The main focus is on optimizing fiber composite structures.

    The Institute of Polymer Technology (IPT) in Wismar regularly tests the properties of new composite plastics in its high-tech laboratories. In the process, the institute cooperates time and again with representatives of industry. There is a particularly close exchange with regional companies. Many years of experience and modern equipment characterize the facilities. Together with Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH and wetransform, the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (IGD) in Rostock is coordinating a research project on the integration of drones into airspace. The focus of the fAIRport project is the development of an open geodata platform.

    The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) is one of the world's leading research institutes in the field of physical plasmas, their fundamentals and technical applications. With currently about 200 scientists, engineers and other specialists, the INP is the largest non-university research institute on low-temperature plasmas in Europe. Research topics related to aerospace include plasma surface modification and thermal plasma technologies.

    In addition, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Neustrelitz is involved in projects in the fields of navigation and satellite reception. About 110 employees are working at the German Remote Sensing Data Center, the Remote Sensing Technology Institute, the Institute for Communication and Navigation and the Institute for Solar-Terrestrial Physics. As part of its efforts to promote young scientists, DLR also operates a School_Lab at the site.

    With its research institutions and companies, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a state full of pioneers in the field of aviation.

  • Workforce and networks

    Research at the Chair of Lightweight Structures at the University of Rostock is concerned with new adaptive components and material systems for the lightweight structures of the future. The focus here is on fiber-reinforced plastic composites as well as other composite materials. The chair forms a powerful focal point for practical training in lightweight construction.

    Aerospace-oriented companies from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern have joined forces to form an aerospace industry network . The network bundles entrepreneurial activities in order to keep up with European developments regionally and internationally. Currently, 22 companies are members of the network. Developers, producers and service providers such as RST Rostock System-Technik GmbH, Mubea Aviation Schwerin and AMAS GmbH from Neu Kalliß are among those involved in the network.

    With the integration of the companies from MV under the umbrella of Hanse-Aerospace e. V ., the network has an internationally renowned partner from which the companies from the northeast benefit in this complex industry. Hanse-Aerospace e.V. is the largest German association of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the aerospace industry in Germany.

    The saz - Schweriner Aus- und Weiterbildungszentrum e. V. is a recognized and accredited educational service provider primarily for the plastics, electrical and metal industries. The main focus is on vocational orientation, joint training in the industrial-technical and commercial fields, and continuing education. In the saz, the entire range of plastics technology from laminating to injection molding and the complete process from design to machine operation and handling technology to quality control is qualified.
