Mobile process to assess the global acoustic
state of aviation-relevant structures





Verbundprojekt mit Fraunhofer IZFP, IMA Dresden, Teletronic GmbH und SOBAtec GmbH.


  • Joint project of Fraunhofer IZFP, IMA Dresden, Teletronic GmbH and SOBAtec GmbH
  • Development of a process for the reproducible detection of defects in large-area structures by guided waves
  • The development concentrates on an adaptive sensor array and a transformer compound system as well as a practicable mobile design.
  • The aim is to be able to quickly assess the location and size of a variable defect developing under load.
  • Failure forecasts and criteria relevant for materials' designers should be able to be identified with greater certainty.
  • Term of the project: 2010 - 2012




Mobile floor transport system (MBTS)


Cooperation with the institute Chemnitzer Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e.V, Beldrive Engineering GmbH and SOBAtec GmbH

  • Rated load of 6 t
  • Total weight of 9 t
  • Dimensions: 4.8 x 2.4 x 0.35 m (L x W x H)


Term of the project: 2009 - 2012



Mobile and modular multiple-path loading and unloading system


Loading and unloading of geometrically undefined goods into/out of standardized transport containers


Term of the project: 2011 - 2013



Development of a detachable control cabin (ASK)



Control cabin for flexible use on goods trains' outward and inward trips


For better utilisation of the railway tracks


Term of the project: 2011 - 2013
