ISF - Our Research Areas

Three of our departments contribute to the research at the Institute of Safety and Security Research: The department of Computer Science, the department of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Technical Journalism and the department of Natural Sciences.

Some examples of our key research areas:

  • Department of Computer Science and Department of Natural Sciences:
    Research Area Civil Security
    (Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Fink, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Holl, Prof. Dr. Harald Illges, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Norbert Jung, Prof. Dr. Peter Kaul, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Pomp, Prof. Dr. Dieter Reinscheid)
    e.g. sensors for the detection and analysis of explosives and energetic materials
  • Department of Computer Science:
    Research Area Information Security
    (Prof. Dr. Karl Jonas, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karl W. Neunast, Prof. Markus Ullmann, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Norbert Jung)
    e.g. the development of secure software and secure human-machine cooperation
    Example: Cyber-Security Lab

 

  • Department of Computer Science, Department of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Technical Journalism:
    Research Area Functional Safety
    (Prof. Dr. Alexander Asteroth, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Breuer, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Iris Groß, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Norbert Jung, Prof. Dr. Dietmar Reinert)
    E.g. reliable non-contact sensors for hazard detection; safety assessment of production facilities
