HENSOLDT has awarded its “Argus” research prize to outstanding final theses by graduates in communications, information and electrical engineering as part of its cooperation with research institutions and universities. New findings in these specialist areas are important for flight safety, earth observation and driver assistance systems.
“The pace of technology development in electronics and sensor technology is accelerating,” said Ryszard Bil, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at HENSOLDT. “It is therefore extremely important for a sensor house like HENSOLDT to remain in close contact with research and to incorporate new findings into product developments.”
The award ceremony took place during the annual Professors’ Day at HENSOLDT’s Ulm site. Professors from renowned universities and colleges as well as experts from the company regularly use this platform to exchange knowledge. A jury of university professors and company experts selected six outstanding theses from numerous submissions, one from the University of Ulm and another from the Ulm University of Applied Sciences.
The prize was awarded to Denis Schlotthauer for his master thesis on the development of a radar-based vibration sensor for use in medical technology. The award also went to the bachelor thesis of Dennis Böhm, who studied at the Institute of Communication Technology at Ulm University of Applied Sciences. Hans Schily developed a mathematical method for the detection of a large number of small objects that are difficult to distinguish in his master thesis.
Jonas Fuchs wrote his master thesis on the improvement of the accuracy of radar sensors by artificial intelligence methods. The jury also considered the master’s thesis submitted by Maurice Hott under the guidance at the Institute for Information and Coding Theory at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel to be worthy of an award.
“New products that help our customers to make means of transport safer and more efficient, for example, require a great deal of detailed research. The outstanding graduates of our partner universities make a valuable contribution to this, ” said Dr. Guy Kouemou, Technology Manager at HENSOLDT.
