Due to the cooperation of several institutes we are able to act as a central contact in the field of adaptronics. Should you require assistance in your research works, do not hesistate to contact us! We are always looking for new partners.
SMM: Simulation software for adaptronic systems - Taking the momentum out of vibrations
Diesel engines vibrate. This produces tremendous stress on the components of ships. Adaptronic systems effectively reduce these vibrations. At the maritime trade fair SMM, Fraunhofer researchers are presenting a simulation tool that allows these systems to be developed efficiently: The “Mechanical Simulation Toolbox“ is now available on the market and easy to use.[...]
For many decades, Fraunhofer ISC has developed innovative coatings for glass and plastics. Modern coating systems with modular design provide multifunctional properties for more protection, safety, efficiency, comfort and performance. A new smart shading system consisting of electrochromic elements - developed in the current EU project EELICON - can be retrofitted, for example, to car windows.[...]
INNOspace Masters 2016 competition – winners impress with new ideas for the future of space
A new wireless satellite, innovative laser communication technology for space, a universal adapter for spaceflight – these are just some of the winning entries in the first INNOspace Masters competition run by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) Space Administration. Using the slogan ‘Satellite 4.0’, the ideas competition called for the development of new proposals and concepts for the future of space (New Space Economy). Fifty companies, start-ups, universities and research institutions from eight European countries responded to the call. A total of nine finalists from three competition categories impressed the jury with their ideas. The awards ceremony took place at the INNOspace Masters Conference in Berlin on 4 May 2016.[...]
