German a nd Israeli industrial R&D teams have pulled off a flying feat with their innovative bespoke radar system to help helicopter pilots navigate even the most difficult conditions. Successful test-flights demonstrated the system in action at low altitudes. Refits to the sensor hardware are now under way to make the radar fully flight-ready. As an innovation frontrunner, the stakes are high.
A German engineering firm and spin-off of the University of Karlsruhe has teamed up with the Technical University of Dresden and a Greek software company to develop an innovative and commercially viable code that simulates the results of wind-induced loads on high-rises.
