On Thursday, 25th of April, members of the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) visited our DSS group at the technical faculty.

Our visitors first listened to a talk about the work of our department – real-time signal processing for sensors in the field of medicine, speech and sonar.

Afterwards we showed our guests some live demos regarding our research fields. We would like to thank our visitors for the nice evening with very interesting discussions!

On Monday, 27th of May, CASSy - our new research platform for underwater signal processing arrived at the technical faculty. Thorben, Alexej, and Owe "pulled" her home from Wismar, where she was produced. CASSy is financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and, of course, we deliver a very big thank you to the DFG for the support.

Beside CASSy (the ship) we will get also a new MIMO-SONAR hardware (also funded by the DFG) that allows for new SONAR and communication modes, which we are happy to investigate in the near future.

As in the last year we spent a couple of days (15.10.2019 till 18.10.2019) on the island Sylt to reflect our past, current, and future research work. Due to a "cold wave" we were a bit reduced this year, but anyhow, we had a very good (and producive) time on this beautiful island. Beside our research plans (reflecting the last year and planning of the next years), we also discussed teaching and outreach topics. Some changes on our webside will be done now and parts of it (e.g. changes in the entry page) are visible already right now.

Thorben, Kevin, Tobias and Bastian extended our framework and the tools that are supporting it such that one the one hand TensorFlow is supported now and - on the other hand - that KiRAT is now fully functional also with the operating system Linux. The support of TensorFlow is important since it allows to train our models offline with this important tool, but to realize the corresponding estimations and decisions in real-time in KiRAT. Well done, Gentleman.

Recently, we get the new projector front-ends from Atlas Elektronik for our MIMO SONAR system. This was part of the "Großgerät" which was obtained with the help of the German research foundation (DFG). Now we are able to perform underwater experiments that will show if our ideas and corresponding realt-time algorithms also works in real environments.

We would like to thank all of our partners, the DFG, the Bundeswehr (WTD71), and Atlas Elektronik for their help with respect to this very interesting underwater research topic.
