The collaborations follow a series of rapid announcements at Technology Innovation Institute since the first Advanced Technology Research Council board meeting in August 2020. Directed Energy Research Centre is one of the initial seven dedicated research centres at Technology Innovation Institute. The strategic partnerships will advance breakthroughs across the field of directed energy and its sub-disciplines.
The partnership with Ruhr University Bochum involves research on radar systems, including ground-penetrating radar (GPR). In addition, by working alongside National University of Colombia in Bogota, the Centre will engage in innovative research within lightweight lightning protection and ground-penetrating radars with humanitarian objectives related to the detection and neutralisation of landmines. Furthermore, the collaboration with Helmut Schmidt University, in Hamburg, and University Clermont Auvergne, in Clermont-Ferrand, will see work performed in numerical and statistical methods related to high-power electromagnetics.
Speaking on the partnership announcements, Dr Chaouki Kasmi, Chief Researcher at Directed Energy Research Centre, said: “These partnerships form a critical aspect of our roadmap to become a leading research centre. Directed energy has an impact across many areas, including – healthcare, infrastructure, materials and the environment. The Centre is committed to harnessing the physics behind high energy systems for the benefit of society.”
Dr Sébastien Lalléchère, Associate Professor at Clermont Auvergne University, said: "Directed Energy Research Centre (DERC) brings together experts from all over the world to harness the power of acoustic and electromagnetic waves for widespread civilian and military applications, including industrial, medical and defence projects. Through pioneering research programmes, Directed Energy Research Centre is advancing the use of high-power technologies for a safer world."
