Optronics, System Technologies, Image Exploitation

Detecting tracks, images, signals, patterns and noises.

We research and develop multi-sensory systems, which help people perceive and interact with their environment. This ranges from the generation and automated analysis of aerial and satellite images – of a disaster area for example – to sorting and quality control of bulk goods like coffee beans or minerals.

Whenever things are too fast, too dangerous or inaccessible for humans, for example in underwater or contaminated areas, mobile robots act as sensor carriers and provide support for assessing the situation. Transparent and interactive video systems guarantee a higher level of protection and safety. All these systems are linked using the latest information technologies, for which we also develop and offer Cyber Security solutions.

We develop software for planning, controlling and operating industrial production processes, have web technologies at our disposal for information management in complex database systems, for example for gathering environmental data or for energy management and the intelligent linking and analysis of such data.
