For decades the real, simultaneous bidirectional communication on the same frequency was considered technically impossible. Main reason: The transmit signal too strongly disturbs the receive path. FKIE scientists have shown that it's possible.
AI and journalistic expertise are the basis of a disinformation detection system developed in a collaboration between pressrelations, NewsGuard and the Fraunhofer FKIE. First use case: An analysis of media coverage of the 2020 US election. The analysis reveals that Trump’s media dominance was due primarily to the spread of fake news and disinformation, particularly with the support of untrustworthy media.
The Bundeswehr plans to equip its infantry with unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) for the transport of material. It has tested various off-the-shelf systems in a variety of operational scenarios. The Fraunhofer FKIE provided technical and scientific support. The conclusion among soldiers and experts was unanimous: the systems are ready for procurement.
Alarming findings are published in the »Home Router Security Report 2020« by the Fraunhofer FKIE. Of the 127 home routers tested, nearly all were found to have security flaws. The problems range from missing security updates to easily decrypted, hard-coded passwords and known vulnerabilities that should have been patched long ago.
In the frame of the Future Combat Air System (FCAS), Airbus and Fraunhofer FKIE have created an independent panel of experts on the responsible use of new technologies to define and propose ethical as well as international legal »guard rails« for Europe’s largest defence project. The panel includes stakeholders such as the German Ministry of Defence, German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, universities and think tanks.
