Projects in the framework of the technology networks
The networks pool basic knowledge which is important for security research and develop innovative systems on the basis of existing and emerging technologies. All projects presented focus on the detection systems for chemical, biological, nuclear and explosive hazardous materials and integrated protection systems for emergency and security services.
All the collaboration projects presented focus on the development of detection systems for biological or chemical and explosive substances and the potential uses of Terahertz technology in detecting weapons and hazardous substances. The research topics range from the early recognition of biological pathogens and other contaminants which are dangerous to health, for example in drinking water supply systems, to the detection of traces of explosives, for example within the framework of luggage screening at airports. read more: Projects in the research area 'Detection of hazardous substances'
The central focus of the collaborative projects presented here is to develop innovative safety solutions designed to significantly improve the performance and protection of emergency teams. This requires reliable, safe and compatible technologies and instruments for communication and coordination in an emergency, along with equipment and supplies to protect against chemical weapons or pollutants during an operation. In this context, the development of highperformance and robust protection systems - such as these - places particular emphasis on user-friendliness and man-machine interface issues. read more: Projects in the research area 'Protection systems for security and emergency services'
