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


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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
