Founded in 2003 by Prof. Reichel, ILS is focused on the digital part of today's aviation systems. Our focus is on avionics platforms, i.e. the many hidden computers, bus systems and software modules in aircraft, including Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA). In this field we have a unique profile in teaching and research.
The ILS is part of the University of Stuttgart and is located at the edge of the forest of the Vaihingen campus. There we operate spacious and modernly equipped laboratories and workshops. Our own research aircraft are available for flight tests.
