    »ViSAR« is an interactive simulator for the visualisation of geometric SAR effects. The user can generate simple 3D models and combine them to complex scenes. For these scenes radar shadows, layover effects and multiple reflections from different angles of a radar sensor can be calculated and displayed.

  • AMFIS - Reconnaissance with mobile and stationary sensors in a network

    Deployment of groups of heterogeneous sensors and mobile systems

    Complex reconnaissance and surveillance tasks often cannot be solved with stationary sensors alone or with just one mobile sensor carrier (e.g., a drone). If several mobile systems are used simultaneously in a scenario, conventional individual applications quickly reach their limits.

    ALBACOPTER drone concept

    To counteract the challenge of the constantly growing volume of traffic, especially in urban areas, six Fraunhofer institutes are developing a scalable, flying experimental platform with the VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) capability of a multicopter and the aerodynamic advantages of a glider, which is to be approved for test and demonstration flights.
