Aero-Daimler filings in Hungary both German and Austrian as culled from HU V/h hitlist

1919 designer Hanns Klemm

Aircraft division established July 1915; made biplane fighters

Dir1920 p30 lists this company at Stüttgart-Untertürkheim. This likewise colloborated in various patents.[1] There seems to have been an Austrian subsidiary Oesterreichische Daimler Motoren A. G., or more properly Österreichische Daimler Motoren A. G..[2] Though we do not know the extent to which these corporate entities were separate, we have decided to divide the data in anticipation of complexities which could arise, as in the case of the British Daimler Motor Company being an offshoot of the German Daimler Motoren-Gesellschaft while having the British Birmingham Small Arms Company acting as some sort of parent firm. In the case of the German and Austrian divisions, we do know that they had enough separate corporate distinction to file separately, with particular national patent offices, such as that of Hungary.

(Both the German and Austrian corporate entities did engage in some work with aircraft before 1915, though an aircraft division, per se, may noy have been deemed necessary, early on.)

DMG used the trademark Mercedes for motors and automobiles; they evidently at least contemplated using it for aircraft as well, as can be seen in the following trade-mark registration in Luxembourg:
