Fraunhofer Group for Defense and Security

In times of social and political turbulence, security is a future market with enormous growth potential. Modern technologies, products and services are in demand like never before. The prosperity and growth of our industrial societies are dependant upon critical infrastructures that are globally networked. Their breakdown or destruction could result in unpredictable economic and social damage as a consequence.

Dissipating borders between interior and exterior security, as well as between public and private security are making state institutes that are responsible for public safety face challenges that, up until now, were unknown. Examples of this include terrorism at an international level, transnational organized crime, as well as the effects of local natural disasters and major accidents which are, in part, felt at a global level.

In order to recognize a variety of risks early, be able to avoid these to the greatest extent possible, and in order to minimize subsequent damage after their occurrence, comprehensive technological security solutions and accompanying methodical, procedural and tactical concepts are being developed at the Fraunhofer Group for Defense and Security.
