With today’s computer systems complex and often susceptible to malicious attacks, it is becoming increasingly important to build-in resilience from the outset, rather than simply ‘adding it on’ at a later date.
The DEPLOY project will work across five of the most important sectors in industry today – transportation, automotive, space, telecommunication and business information – to create new ways of building resilient computer systems.
Professor Michael Butler, from ECS, comments: ‘What is encouraging about this project is that our industry partners are really enthusiastic and have recognised the importance of incorporating robust design into their computer systems. We are using mathematical models to provide analysis of these designs, which will help eliminate errors before the systems are put together.’
Scientists from the University of Southampton will work alongside academic partners from Newcastle University, University of Dusseldorf, ETH (Zurich) and Aabo Academy (Finland) and five leading European companies – Siemens, Bosch, Space Systems, Nokia and SAP (Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing).
Work being carried out will feed into projects such as the 2013 European Space Agency’s mission to explore Mercury and train security on the Paris Metro.
The scientists will be using formal engineering methods to analyse the resilience of each system and refining these in an industrial setting to ensure they meet the needs of an increasingly technological society.
A pilot will be set up in each different industry sector, which will be tested and developed for a year before going into production.

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...
