DLR (Deutschen Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt)
The German center for aerospace research. DLR was formed in 1969 with the merger of national aerospace research and test organizations as DFVLR (Deutsche Forschung und Versuchanstalt für Luft und Raumfahrt) but was reorganized and renamed in 1989 at the time the German space agency, DARA, was created. One of the consequences of this reorganization was the transfer of major program management functions from DLR to DARA.
