Director of Institute: Prof. Dr. Alberto Moreira

The Institute contributes with its know-how and expertise in passive and active microwaves to the development and advancement of ground-based, airborne and spaceborne sensors. It concentrates its research work on the concept and development of new microwave techniques and systems, as well as sensor-specific applications.

The Institute‘s strength is the execution of long-term research programmes with applications in remote sensing, aeronautics, traffic monitoring and last but not least reconnaissance and security.

In line with the German space programme, the Institute works in close collaboration with the German space agency of DLR in Bonn, the European Space Agency ESA, the German industry, and the responsible ministries.

Education of young scientists in the form of internships and diploma or doctoral theses is also an important part of the Institute’s mission.
