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: Better thermal conductivity by adjusting the arrangement of atoms

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.

In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Im Focus: First-ever visualizations of electrical gating effects on electronic structure

Scientists have visualised the electronic structure in a microelectronic device for the first time, opening up opportunities for finely-tuned high performance electronic devices.

Physicists from the University of Warwick and the University of Washington have developed a technique to measure the energy and momentum of electrons in...

Im Focus: Megakaryocytes act as „bouncers“ restraining cell migration in the bone marrow

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.

Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...

Im Focus: Artificial neural network resolves puzzles from condensed matter physics: Which is the perfect quantum theory?

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.

Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...

Im Focus: Extremely hard yet metallically conductive: Bayreuth researchers develop novel material with high-tech prospects

An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".

The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
