Fraunhofer FHR at the IEEE Radar Conference 2019 in Boston, USA

09.04.2019

Premiere in the USA: The Fraunhofer Institute for High-Frequency Physics and Radar Technology FHR is participating in the IEEE Radar Conference 2019 in Boston, USA, from April 22nd to 26th, with three innovative radar applications, two talks and for the first time with its own booth at a fair in the USA. Organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the largest international professional association of engineers, the 2019 IEEE Radar Conference is one of the most important radar conferences worldwide.

In addition to two talks on the topics of "Direction of arrival estimation techniques for passive radar based 3D target localization" and "Minimum variance power spectrum based calibration for improved clutter suppression in PCL on moving platforms" in the speech area of the conference, the scientists of the Fraunhofer FHR are presenting the projects PARASOL, GESTRA and PAMIR-Ka at their booth to the audience of experts.

PARASOL (Passive Radar based object tagging for aviation) enables a needs-based control of collision warning lights on wind turbines and as such contributes significantly to the environmental compatibility as well as the increase of acceptance for wind farms.

GESTRA (German Experimental Space Surveillance and Tracking Radar), a space surveillance radar with an innovative system that precisely records orbital data from satellites and space debris in low Earth orbit at an altitude between 300 and 3000 kilometers.

The Ka-Band Phased Array Multi-Functional Imaging Radar (PAMIR-Ka) demonstrates innovative methods and technologies in the Ka-band frequency range for enhanced airborne surveillance and reconnaissance.

„As one of the world's leading institutes for the research and development of innovative radar applications, participation in the IEEE Radar Conference 2019 is important to us. We look forward to the high-level program and the exchange with other international experts", says Prof. Dr. Peter Knott, Director of the Fraunhofer FHR.

Im Focus: Solving the mystery of quantum light in thin layers

A very special kind of light is emitted by tungsten diselenide layers. The reason for this has been unclear. Now an explanation has been found at TU Wien (Vienna)

It is an exotic phenomenon that nobody was able to explain for years: when energy is supplied to a thin layer of the material tungsten diselenide, it begins to...

Im Focus: An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.

The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...

Im Focus: Shaping nanoparticles for improved quantum information technology

Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility located at DOE's Argonne National...

Im Focus: Novel Material for Shipbuilding

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.

The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...

Im Focus: Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
