Security personnel carry out random checks for explosives on people and objects at airports and major events. Up until now, this has been done by wiping a special test strip over items like bags or laptops, then examining the test strip using an analysis device. This takes a few minutes and requires adequate numbers of personnel. Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) are currently developing and testing a laser-based process for this purpose. This is completely contactless and thus enables fast and reliable checking of a significantly larger number of people.
The onset of winter at the airport – heavy snowfall is forecast, so restricted operations can be expected for several hours. To ensure that the processes continue to run smoothly even during severe weather events in winter, close coordination and cooperation between all key players at the airport are essential.
The Institute of Composite Structures and Adaptive Systems, the Institute of Structures and Design, the Institute of Materials Research and the Center for Lightweight Production Technology (ZLP) – at its locations in Stade and Augsburg – of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have teamed up to develop automated processes for the production of components made of high-performance fibre metal laminates.

In the northwest, Hiawatha Glacier is located at 78.8 degrees north, 67 degrees west. It emerges from a semi-circular lobe at the ice sheet margin and forms a narrow tongue with a length of 10 kilometres extending onto the ice-free Inglefield Land. Hiawatha Glacier’s northern neighbour, the large Humboldt Glacier, is much more widely known. The front of the Humboldt Glacier is over 100 kilometres wide where it flows into the Nares Strait. The TanDEM-X image shows the region around Hiawatha Glacier.
