EVERY STEP COUNTS
FORMER & CURRENT PROJECTS
Contribution matters. We are proud to be part of projects which have pushed the boundaries and tackled challenges which refine our current understandings, paving way for new discoveries and accomplishments. We celebrate it as a part of our corporate identity.
FP7 PROJECT BONAS
The BONAS - BOmb factory detection by Networks of Advanced Sensors - is supported by the European Commission within the frame of the 7th Framework Program (FP7).
The aim of BONAS is to design, develop and test a novel wireless sensors network for increasing citizen protection and homeland security against terrorist attacks, in particular against the threat posed by IED devices. The sensor network will focus on the detection of traces of precursors used in IED production (particulates, gases and/or waterborne) present in the environment surrounding the vicinity of a 'bomb factory'. The project is planned for 3 years, the consortium consists of 13 partners and coordinated by ENEA.
FP7 PROJECT DELICAT
The project DELICAT stands for Demonstration of LIDAR based Clear Air Turbulence detection. The objective of DELICAT is to validate the concept of LIDAR based medium range turbulence detection, allowing efficient protection of the passengers and crew of the aircrafts by taking the proper actions.
The validation will be based on the comparison of the information on a turbulent atmospheric area, provided on one side by the remote LIDAR sensor and on the other side by the aircraft sensors (acceleration, air speed, temperature). The project is planned for 3 years, the consortium consists of 13 partners and coordinated by THALES-Avionics.
IT IS KIND OF A BIG DEAL
Laser Diagnostic Instruments carries out in-house R&D projects aimed to support product development, and has been working on collaborative R&D projects aimed at the development of innovative products and applications.
AMPERA PROJECT DEOSOM
DEOSOM (Detection and Evaluation of Oil Spills by Optical Methods) is R&D project within the framework of the AMPERA (Accidental Marine Pollution ERA-NET) program - is aimed at the development of such laser based sensors for operation on board of small boats or coastal platforms. The project team includes partners from Portugal, Spain and Estonia.
CO-OPERATIVE PROJECTS IN ESTONIA
Since 2004, LDI is a stakeholder in the Competence Center of Food and Fermentation Technologies (CCFFT). The strategic goal of the CCFFT is to apply and develop modern methods based on physics, chemistry and post-genomic processes design to improve product quality, production functionality and storage properties of the food products taking into account detailed molecular/physiological properties of raw materials, additives, starters etc.
