In cooperation with top-level partners, Fraunhofer FHR will present the latest research results and projects in the field of high frequency and microwave technology. At the booth shared with the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research TNO and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF, the experts from Fraunhofer FHR will show exhibits with innovative antennas and metamaterials, the space observation radar GESTRA with cutting-edge phased array technology, the radar target simulator ATRIUM to test radar sensors in cars, a radar camera for obstacle detection in poor visibility conditions as well as high frequency components produced by 3D printing. At the shared booth of the Research Fab Microelectronics Germany FMD, Fraunhofer FHR will – as part of the FMD – present the drone detection radar system in the ORAS project and a steel radar for quality assurance in cold and hot rolling processes.

In addition to the EuMW exhibition area, Fraunhofer will also help shape the conference area, as its scientists will give six specialist lectures, hold a workshop, and contribute to two more radar and high frequency subjects. “The EuMW is an important European and international platform for scientific exchange. We are excited to once again put the spotlight on our excellent cooperation with partners such as TNO or Fraunhofer IAF and on our knowledge sharing within the FMD this year. And the fact that the EuMW brings science and industry together also helps to ensure the event’s firm place in the institute’s schedule”, says Prof. Dr. Peter Knott, Director of Fraunhofer FHR.
