DNW is a non-profit foundation under Dutch law, with headquarters in Marknesse in the Netherlands. Its tunnels are situated in a number of locations in the Netherlands and Germany: Marknesse, Amsterdam, Braunschweig, and Göttingen.

DNW operates its own large, low-speed facility and the aeronautical wind tunnels of DLR and NLR. DNW provides solutions for the experimental simulation requirements of aerodynamic research and development projects. These projects can originate in the course of industrial development of new products or in the research community (universities, research establishments or research consortia). Most of the industrial development projects originate in the aeronautical industry, but the automotive, civil engineering, shipbuilding and sports industries have also benefited from DNW’s capabilities.

Dnw’s six wind tunnels include high and low speed, supersonic and transonic facilities, and provide experimental aerodynamic simulation capabilities to the user community at large. In ESTRO the Large Low Speed Facility (LLF) is used to test the aerodynamic performance  of a scaled model of the of the Regional 90 seats turboprop A/C wing of LDO.
