What is inside the "ball"?

With its space observation radar TIRA, the researchers at FHR develop new radar techniques for the precise determination of the trajectory, size and form of objects in space. These innovative techniques are also used to check the functionality of satellites, support space missions and monitor the general situation in space.

MRI images: more efficient, quieter and faster

Magnetic resonance imaging has become an indispensable tool for medical diagnostics. Using metamaterials – printed circuit boards whose properties can be systematically adjusted – can increase measurement sensitivity by a factor of five. Metamaterials can also make scans faster and quieter. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institutes for Digital Medicine MEVIS and for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR are working together to make examinations more pleasant for patients.

Decentralized monitoring of COVID-19 patients: M3Infekt project launched

M3Infekt, a Fraunhofer cluster project, aims to develop a monitoring system that enables early intervention in the event that a patient’s condition sud-denly starts to deteriorate. It will be a modular, multimodal and mobile sys-tem, and will also be suitable for use in the treatment of COVID-19 pa-tients. By facilitating the required intervention at an early stage, the system helps to lessen the effects of disease, shorten the duration of therapy and make flexible use of intensive care wards.

Using radar to detect foreign objects in foods

Foreign objects – glass splinters, for example – that find their way into foods can be hazardous to consumers. Established X-ray techniques detect primarily metals – glass, plastic and wood pose a challenge. SAMMI®, a new prototype, fills this gap: using radar, it has already detected glass splinters in sandwich cookies, as well as missing pieces of chocolate in advent calendars.

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.
