The Munitect network is an association of companies and research institutions driving the development of economically effective munitions detection systems for underwater use. By means of the cooperation, the competences and variety of experiences from the network partners’ different industries are bundled and experiences are shared.
The network partners share the vision of a high-performance and cost-effective sensor platform facilitating an efficient, safe and risk-free detection of old military munitions. The system is to be developed in a modular design in order to identify different harmful substances or carrier objects with various procedures on site at the same time. This will result in a significantly expedited detection of the munitions.
Within the scope of the network, the members initiate and develop application-oriented research and development projects together with national and international project partners. They need to make a sustainable contribution to the goal of solving the problem of the old military munitions.
Munitect is managed by Fraunhofer IGD in Rostock und supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
