Council of European Aerospace Societies 

Council of European Aerospace Societies
In the mid 1980s Europe’s main professional aerospace societies, after having had bilateral exchanges for a long time, recognized the increasingly international nature of aerospace business and the strength of European industrial alliances by beginning to develop close working relationships.
This culminated in the formation of the Confederation of European Aerospace Societies (CEAS). Apart from the consideration of CEAS as an association of national Societies, two branches have been established: one for aeronautics and one for space.
Today CEAS comprises sixteen member societies with a combined roughly 35.000 individual members.

German Aerospace Center 

Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt
Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt (DLR) The German Aerospace Center is Germany's national research center for aeronautics and space. Its extensive research and development work in aeronautics, space, transportation and energy is integrated into national and international cooperative ventures. As Germany's Space Agency, the German federal government has given DLR responsibility for the forward planning and implementation of the German space programme as well as international representation of Germany's interests.
DLR’s mission comprises:
- Exploration of the Earth and the solar system
- Research aimed at protecting the environment
- Development of environmentally-friendly technologies to promote mobility, communication and security.

    Aims and Scope


    The CEAS Aeronautical Journal has been created under the umbrella of CEAS to provide an appropriate platform for excellent scientific publications submitted by scientists and engineers. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the European Space Agency (ESA) support the Journal.

    The Journal is devoted to publishing results and findings in all areas of aeronautics-related science and technology as well as reports on new developments in design and manufacturing of aircraft, rotorcraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Of interest are also (invited) in-depth reviews of the status of development in specific areas of relevance to aeronautics, and descriptions of the potential way forward. Typical disciplines of interest include flight physics and aerodynamics, aeroelasticity and structural mechanics, aeroacoustics, structures and materials, flight mechanics and flight control, systems, flight guidance, air traffic management, communication, navigation and surveillance, aircraft and aircraft design, rotorcraft and propulsion.

    The Journal publishes peer-reviewed original articles, (invited) reviews and short communications.
