The project EMS 2 is a part of the joint project “R&D and Real Time Services for maritime Safety and Security”. The project is embedded into the bunch the institutional forces and interdisciplinary completion of research and development activities of the DLR within the maritime domain.
The sub-project „Terrestrial and space-based maritime Navigation and Communication“ of the Institute of Communications and Navigation is following the aim to investigate the reliability and protection of navigation and communication systems and to develop new and robust algorithms and techniques to improve it.
Under consideration of the navigation related aspects of the project a strong focus is led on the development of multi-sensor systems, multi-antenna systems as well as redundant applicable navigation systems. Within the field of communication we are working on solutions for a safe, secure, robust and application oriented provision of communication links for the data exchange between ship and land and ship to ship by optimal use of all available communication resources. For the purpose of testing all processes we carry out measurement campaigns, preferably in the Baltic Sea and North Sea, in order to verify their suitability under real conditions at sea.
To this end, we are using, among other things, the research infrastructure at the Rostock research harbor and the DLR's jamming testbed in the Baltic Sea.
In the Nautical Systems department at the Neustrelitz site, we primarily deal with navigation-related issues in this project. The topics addressed are:
January 2016 – December 2018
