Fraunhofer Group for Defense and Security
This group has been formed by Fraunhofer Institutes as a means of coordinating their research activities and defining common goals in the area of "Defense and Security".
Institutes working in related subject areas cooperate in Fraunhofer Groups and foster a joint presence on the R&D market. They help to define the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s business policy and act to implement the organizational and funding principles of the Fraunhofer model.
At the ESI-Application Center, which is part of the Embedded Systems Initiative, Fraunhofer IIS collaborates with Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremberg. Since late 2009, the Application Center has been developing embedded systems, with a focus on multi-core systems, wireless communications, design methodologies and hardware-software codesign. In this context, Fraunhofer IIS undertakes work on automation in a wide range of areas, for instance for sport, fitness, automobility and industry 4.0.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau (Thuringia) offers applied research in digital audio-visual systems. It develops solutions for virtual acoustics for the home entertainment sector and professional markets (e.g. IOSONO® wave field synthesis technology) and software technology for analyzing multimedia meta data as well as audio-visual applications for medical technology.
In close collaboration with Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen, the DMT team, based in San José, California, introduces new audio formats into the American market.
A school partnership provides young people with an insight to the work conducted at the institute and cultivates technical understanding.
