DLR Special Topic Prize for Professional Satellite Navigation Applications

13.05.2009
Highly precise, interference-free, and secure – the advanced satellite navigation applications the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is looking for in the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2009 will have to bring at least one of these qualities to the table, along with sustainable benefits for the economy and public sector. DLR is offering €150,000 in consulting services to the winners.

As the national aerospace research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany, DLR aligns its research to the economy’s need for innovative products and services while investing in forward-thinking technologies. It also offers its research and development capabilities directly to innovative companies – a form of cooperation that has already led to the development and successful market launch of numerous products.

In its role as a special topic prize sponsor in the sixth European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC), DLR is seeking ideas for products, services, and other entrepreneurial inventions that promise long-term benefits to the economy and public sector. In particular, these include applications that require exact timing, satellite-based applications in the healthcare sector, new methods and applications offering improved signal verification and reduced sensitivity to interference, new processes and applications that use satellite signals to achieve highly precise positioning and rapid data distribution on the ground, and innovative applications for the Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS).

The winners will have set themselves on a direct path to systematically implementing their ideas with the help of DLR’s scientific expertise and development network. There are three DLR vouchers to be won, granting a total of €150,000 in services their holders can use to perfect their innovations (feasibility studies, conception studies, prototype development, business development, and more).

Along with creative ideas for products and services, DLR is looking for fields of use in which one or more of the qualities “highly precise”, “interference-free”, and “secure” are an absolute must. Innovative character and added value for the end user will be the key criteria.

Application ideas for the DLR special topic prize can be submitted until July 31, 2009 at http://galileo-masters.eu/index.php?anzeige=special_prizes_dlr.html .

Facts and data on the European Satellite Navigation Competition
The European Satellite Navigation Competition is an international innovation contest that awards the best ideas for applications in satellite navigation. The competition has been organised by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen since 2004 and is oriented toward companies, entrepreneurs, research institutes, universities, and private individuals. Having begun with three partner regions, this year’s ESNC will be held in 17 high-tech regions all over the world: Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Nice / Sophia Antipolis, Prague, South Holland, Madrid, Lombardy, Australia, Taiwan, and Great Britain, as well as newcomers Øresund, Gipuzkoa, Switzerland, and Israel.

The ESNC is intended to further strengthen international collaboration among these regions, particular with regard to the development of applications and services made possible by the European satellite navigation system Galileo. The competition is held under the patronage of the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology and is supported by Messe München GmbH. The main winners of the ESNC – the GALILEO Master, the special prize winners, and the 17 regional winners – will be recognised at a state reception to be held at the Munich Residenz on October 21, 2009.

About the German Aerospace Center (DLR)

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aerospace research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its extensive research and development work is carried out in national and international cooperations. In addition to its own research, DLR serves the German government as the space agency responsible for the planning and execution of the country’s aerospace activities, as well as the international protection of interests. DLR is also the umbrella organisation of Germany’s largest project management agency.

Around 6,000 people work for DLR at 28 institutes and other facilities in thirteen locations in Germany – Cologne (executive headquarters), Berlin, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Göttingen, Hamburg, Lampoldshausen, Neustrelitz, Oberpfaffenhofen, Stuttgart, Trauen, and Weilheim. DLR also maintains foreign offices in Brussels, Paris, and Washington, D.C.

DLR’s mission covers the exploration of the earth and solar system, research into environmental preservation and environmentally friendly technologies, and optimizing mobility, communications, and security. Its research portfolio in the business fields of aviation, aerospace, transport, and energy extend from fundamental research to the innovative applications and products of tomorrow. The scientific and technological expertise obtained by DLR thus aids in strengthening Germany as an industrial and technological location. In addition, DLR operates major research facilities for its own projects and as a service for customers and partners. It also supports young scientists, provides sound advice to policymakers, and is a driving force in the regions surrounding its locations.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
