ELTA of France is looking for international distributors for its latest range of Argos data transmitters – the HAL-2 and the VHAL-2. These new high-performance products have been designed to operate in the most hostile environments. Argos – with more than 11,000 active platforms throughout the whole world – has become the preferred system for observing and monitoring the environment on a worldwide scale.
The new-generation Argos HAL-2 (High Accuracy Locator) transmitter has an excellent and reliable frequency stability, making it possible to pinpoint objects to an accuracy of between 300 metres and 400 metres. The VHAL-2 (Very High Accuracy Locator) transmitter is fitted with an integrated GPS device. It enables even more accurate pinpointing, to within a few metres, while at the same time retaining the same general characteristics and overall performance as the HAL-2.
The HAL-2 and VHAL-2 have an exceptional frequency stability. Owing to their very low electric-power consumption (less than 50µA), highly elaborate miniaturisation and sturdiness, this new range can be adapted to all environmental applications, even the most demanding and critical.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
