Tracking Environmental Factors Affecting Lung Diseases with Sensor Armbands

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis (CF) are lung diseases that cause high mortality. The EU-wide REMEDIA project develops technologies for measuring environmental influences that have an impact on these diseases. Four Fraunhofer Institutes are part of the…

Weltraumelektronik – Fit für den Orbit

Der Weltraumvertrag von 1967 regelt: „Jede Nation hat freien Zugang zum All.“ Seit zirka 20 Jahren starten immer mehr Nationen mit kommerziellen Projekten in den Weltraum. Private Raumfahrtunternehmen planen, mit Mikro– und Nanosatelliten z.B. die weltweite lückenlose Internetversorgung zu erreichen….

Space Electronics – Fit for Orbit!

The Outer Space Treaty of 1967 stipulates that every nation enjoys free access to space. For the last 20 years, more and more nations have been launching commercial projects in space. Private spaceflight companies are planning to use micro and…

Robust5G – How clever module design slows down the material aging of 5G components

Communication networks like 5G need the many modules and components that make them up to be robust and long-lasting, whatever the environmental conditions or other circumstances may be. Researchers at Fraunhofer IZM have now developed a testing method which allows…

Mission Impossible? The Art of Measuring Fluid Mechanics on Sails

To improve and enhance the performance of high-performance sails, it is important to know and optimize their fluid mechanical and structural properties. For ultralight textile structures – be it sails for ships or even paragliders and parachutes – it has…
