Interference suppression in the Baltic Sea

In­ter­fer­ence sup­pres­sion in the Baltic Sea

August 1, 2016  Dur­ing a mea­sure­ment cam­paign in June 2016 in the Baltic Sea, sci­en­tists from the DLR In­sti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Nav­i­ga­tion in­ves­ti­gat­ed new re­ceiv­er sys­tems and pro­ce­dures for in­ter­fer­ence sup­pres­sion. At times, up to four ships took part in the mea­sure­ment cam­paign.

Sim­u­la­tion of ship­wrecked per­sons

September 9, 2016  Four dum­mies and one track­ing de­vice were used for the ‘man over­board’ sce­nario. Aban­doned in the North Sea, they were found and res­cued with the help of da­ta ob­tained from space, air and land.

Berlin Cen­tral Sta­tion from space

April 16, 2015  From 11 to 15 May 2015, ap­prox­i­mate­ly 750 in­ter­na­tion­al ex­perts will meet at the Berlin ISRSE con­fer­ence up­on in­vi­ta­tion of DLR to dis­cuss Earth ob­ser­va­tion and cli­mate change. One top­ic will be the Ger­man radar satel­lites Ter­raSAR-X and Tan­DEM-X. The two re­mote sens­ing satel­lites have record­ed Berlin Cen­tral Sta­tion from space with mil­li­met­ric pre­ci­sion. The re­sults are vis­i­ble in this im­age. In the course of a year, the steel com­plex de­formed ver­ti­cal­ly by up to 1.8 cen­time­tres and hor­i­zon­tal­ly by be­tween 1.5 and 3.5 cen­time­tres. Oth­er items of ‘crit­i­cal in­fras­truc­ture’, which the radar satel­lites mea­sure from space, in­clude bridges and dams.

A new kind of rail crash concept for improved future safety

A new kind of rail crash con­cept for im­proved fu­ture safe­ty

December 21, 2016  In or­der to pro­tect pas­sen­gers and crew from rail col­li­sions and min­imise the con­se­quences of ac­ci­dents, an in­no­va­tive crash con­cept was test­ed in ear­ly Au­gust 2016. This crash con­cept was de­vel­oped as part of the ex­ten­sive re­search work of the Next Gen­er­a­tion Train (NGT) project.
