Maritime Sensor & Vehicle Technology of the Fraunhofer IBMT at the Hanover Fair 2015

18.03.2015

The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT has a broad and long-standing expertise in the field of ultrasound. At this year's Hanover Fair from April 13 to 17, 2015 in Hanover, it presents in particular its activities in the field of sonar on the joint Fraunhofer booth »Maritime Technologies«.

For two decades, the Fraunhofer IBMT develops ultrasound systems and transducers. The results of this work can be found in many products in the market. In particular, medical and industrial systems are traditionally important areas of work of the institute.


Modular, pressure-balanced deep-sea vehicle.

Fraunhofer

The field of the maritime technologies showed an excellent development. So, sophisticated vehicles were tested in recent years, which are equipped with their own sonar sensor systems. The depth of the vehicles´ use by its pressure-balanced design concept (without protective pressure hull) reaches up to 6,000 m, while the modular design allows for optimum adaptation to the mission objective.

At this year's Hanover Fair, the Fraunhofer IBMT presents on the joint Fraunhofer booth in Hall 13, Stand E30 Maritime Technologies. A novel multibeam echo sounder is presented based on only a single antenna. Through this space-saving design, it can be used particularly in small diving vehicles for high-resolution mapping or inspection of underwater installations.

In addition to this highlight, the Fraunhofer IBMT presents its entire range of technologies of technical ultrasound, special ultrasonic transducers to scalable modular ultrasound systems and new ultrasound method to special applications.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
