    Parasol: Passive radar controls nighttime identification of wind turbines

    Windenergieanlagen mit rot blickender Nachtkennzeichnung

    Wind energy is an important pillar of the energy transition. However, the disturbing red flashing warning lights at night in particular cause rejection among the affected citizens in the surrounding area. The passive radar system PARASOL for demand-oriented nighttime warning, approved by the German Air Traffic Control, can immediately provide an environmentally friendly and cost-conscious remedy.

    Ballast Condition Assessment in modern railways using RADAR

    Ground penetrating radar (GPR) system has become an attractive non-destructive inspection method for railway track monitoring and maintenance. In generally, this inspection is still mostly performed by visual observation and using cores in specific locations with both methods having clear limitations. In this research, we are evaluating novel processing algorithms for Railway track inspection based on a full-polarimetric high-resolution GPR system build at the FHR. On the other hand, simulation models are being refined to make them more reliable and accurate for training machine learning algorithms for an automatic track inspection.

    15th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation

    Attracting almost 1400 attendees it is one of the two largest conferences in antennas and propagation in the world. It will be the 15th edition of the conference, which promotes not only new trends in antenna theory, techniques, and technology, but also closer relations among academia, research centres, and industry. To that aim, tools such as application tracks, industrial workshops, technical tours, and, above all, a large exhibition, have been implemented.

    Danger from drones: Monitoring airports with millimeter wave radar

    If drones get in the way of aircraft taking off or landing, it can be dangerous. The German government would therefore like to provide better protection for airports. This would be possible, for example, with a radar system that simultaneously monitors the ground and airspace, classifies objects and determines their flight altitude. The system can also be used to monitor military camps and checkpoints.
