CROWN will pave way for European defence innovations and technological sovereignty

Emerging military scenarios with increasing complex threats are demanding new and advanced radiofrequency (RF) systems to ensure the strategic autonomy of the European Union (EU). CROWN project, launched in July 2021 under the EU Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR) program, will address research and technological development activities to go a step further in the development of European next-generation multifunction radiofrequency (RF) system mainly for airborne surveillance platforms based on Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA) technology capable of integrating radar, electronic defence and communications functions into a single compact and lightweight item of equipment. The project will make a significant contribution towards building European industrial defence capability and ensuring industrial independence.

Terahertz technologies for visionary innovations in com-munications and sensor technology

In the recently launched joint project "T-KOS" of the Research Fab Micro-electronics Germany (FMD), terahertz technology is now to be developed synergistically for industry in the fields of communication and sensor technology for the first time. Innovative system solutions in both areas can make a significant contribution to the successful implementation of future issues such as digitalization, Industry 4.0 or resource efficiency and thus strengthen Germany as a business location in the long term.

"Waste4Future" paves new ways for plastics recycling

A sustainable society with climate-neutral processes requires significant adjustments in the value chains, which are only possible through innovations. Seven Fraunhofer Institutes are pooling their expertise in the lighthouse project "Waste4Future" to develop new solutions for this goal, from the raw material base to material flows and process engineering right to the end of a product's life cycle. In particular, they want to increase energy and resource efficiency in the use of plastics and thus pave the way for a chemical industry that requires fewer fossil raw materials and produces fewer emissions.
