The Forum for Applied Satellite Navigation and Mobile IT Baden-Württemberg e. V. (Forum SatNav MIT BW) is participating in the European Satellite Navigation Competition for the first time this year by sponsoring a special topic prize for security-relevant solutions in the transport and logistics sector.
It seeks market-ready submissions from companies, universities, and research institutes that create value in logistics by means of applications in satellite navigation and mobile IT. Doing so requires both innovations and improvements to existing solutions.
Oberpfaffenhofen, July 9, 2009: With its participation in the European Satellite Navigation Competition, Forum SatNav MIT BW is underscoring its goal of becoming one of the top addresses in satellite navigation and mobile IT. Companies and research institutes in Baden-Württemberg are already producing numerous innovations and developments in these two fields.
"In the 2008 iteration of the European Satellite Navigation Competition, Baden-Württemberg trailed only Taiwan in number of submissions. This shows how well positioned southwest Germany is in satellite navigation and mobile IT. We're also anticipating plenty of contributions this year for the special topic prize on offer from Forum SatNav MIT BW. Satellite navigation is expected to lead to groundbreaking changes in logistics," confirms Dr Rolf-Jürgen Ahlers of Forum SatNav MIT BW. This opinion is shared by Klaus Haasis, managing director of MFG Baden-Württemberg, which is the German state's innovation agency for IT and media and sponsorship partner for the special topic prize.
The winner will be featured in an exhibition space at POSITIONALE - the international trade fair for satellite positioning, navigation, and telematics - in Stuttgart, Germany, in May 2010. Meanwhile, the first and second runners-up will be presented at an event in Baden-Württemberg. Furthermore, the award winning participants will receive support with the commercialisation of their application ideas through international partners as well as valuable contacts and collaborative opportunities via the strong industrial network of SatNav MIT BW.Additional information on the SatNav MIT BW special prize and the database for registering competition entries are available at the following link:

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
