Rapid rescue of buried people

When someone is buried by an avalanche, earthquake or other disaster, a rapid rescue can make the difference between life and death. The Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR has developed a new kind of mobile radar device that can search hectare-sized areas quickly and thoroughly. The new technology combines greater mobility with accurate detection of vital signs.

"Radar in Action" becomes international: Fraunhofer FHR online lecture series now also in English

To communicate the various new applications, which became possible with radar by the technological advancements of the last years, compactly and understandably to a broad public: This is the aim of "Radar in Action", the online lecture series of the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR, which was launched with great success in June 2020. Since in times of Corona a personal presentation of the research work at fairs and conferences is not possible, the institute developed a digital format for customers, partners and interested parties from industry, politics, science and society. In order to stay in contact with the international network, the events are now also offered in English.
