Current research work

PIDSO is currently conducting research on new materials, production methods and technologies, from many different industries to expand the limits of technology in the field of high frequencies technology. .

This research activity is being transferred directly to customer solutions and innovative antennas as well.

PIDSO amongst others is involved in the following research projects:

DARvis
Data fusion of K/X band radar with visual sensors for airborne platforms

A project of the FFG – the Austrian Research Promotion Agency on behalf of the BMVIT (Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology)

DARVIS is a research project within the framework of the FFG TAKE OFF program.

Different sensor technologies in aviation have so far inadequately combined the respective complementary properties. The optimal fusion levels as well as the respective characteristics of the sensors are to be used optimally in the future. The different methods of calibration and synchronization are examined and optimized. The results will subsequently be incorporated into a sensor model for collision avoidance for aviation.

Research Partners:

  • AIT-Austrian Institut of Technology (Research Management)
  • TU Wien
  • Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH

ROPA
Radar Optical Piloted Aircraft

A project of the FFG – of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency on behalf of the BMVIT (Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology)

ROPA is a research project within the framework of the FFG TAKE OFF program.

Unmanned aircraft are not yet able to independently detect obstacles and avoid possible collisions. In order to ensure increased safety in flight, ROPA's research is dedicated to the investigation and data fusion of various optical, infrared and radar sensing methods and procedures. The focus is on identifying potential conflicts and collision avoidance strategies, as well as integrating and evaluating the technology in an aircraft under the EASA CS23 category.

Research partners:

  • AIT – Austrian Institut of Technology
    (Research Management)
  • Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH

Welcome to all the young talents out there!

PIDSO believes in the researchers of tomorrow and supports various institutions and youth projects. Among other things, PIDSO also offers an internship every summer as part of the FFG's Talent Internship Programme.
