Objectives and aims of the LTH

The LTH serves to standardize and rationalize engineering work in all phases of material development and in-service use of aerial vehicles and flight equipment. It provides support in the fulfillment of company, customer and governmental authorities quality standards and the improvement of German industry competitiveness in international joint projects.
It supports engineers in solving specific problems and is also intended to assist young aviation engineers.

Use and benefits of the LTH

The application of the LTH forms the basis of clear contractual relations. It governs technical development principles between the contractual partners and airworthiness authorities by means of their acceptance endorsement. The LTH thus contributes to ensuring successful national products.

Funding of the LTH

The LTH is funded by industry in terms of the work performance of its employees and by means of financial support ("LTH-Mittel für Fremdleistungen") for individual projects by the governmental authority (BAAINBw). These funds are supplemented by grants of the German Federal Ministry of Defense from research and technology budget items. This also covers the activities of the LTH Executive Secretary.

LTH members

The LTH members are companies, institutions, universities and authorities operating in the field of systems and equipment and cooperating in the preparation of LTH contributions from the individual subject areas in the respective working groups.
You can access further portraits of members as soon as they are available.
