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.

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
