Aeronautics research program (LuFo)

Aeronautics research program (LuFo)

As part of the LuFo aeronautics research program, the German government provides funds to companies in the aviation industry to ensure their international competitiveness and to develop new technologies for a sustainable air transport system of the future.

MTU is one of the leading industrial partners in the program. The company cooperates closely with universities and research establishments, focusing on the development of new high-pressure compressor and low-pressure turbine technologies to further improve efficiencies. The development of the successful GTF technologies and also the optimization of blisk manufacturing techniques are owed to no small extent also to the funding granted under this national program.
