Digital signals, data and information are controlling our life - today more than ever before. Digital solutions create progress, new opportunities and create a new living environment and business conditions for people, society, organizations and economy. However, the digital world is also linked to threats, new forms of criminality and fraud.
It is part of our human nature to use sophisticated communications for expressing different kind of messages. Small talk and the clear instruction not allowing any objection are constituent parts of our communicative life. Each action, however, needs stimulation by exchange of information. Humans are generally communicating via audio, text, images or other types of sensory and psychological information.
Today´s telecommunications use different channels and technologies to transfer signals over long distances and to distribute them among a large or a specific community of counterparts. Today, using electromagnetic waves as carriers for coded signals allow us to use wireless means of communicating with each other that determine our life to an extraordinary degree. The Internet is the medium that allows for communicating between people, computers and machines with previously unknown speed, quantity and performance.
The control of technical systems would be impossible without using digital signal processing methods developed over the last thirty years to an unexpected degree of perfection and complexity.
Technically generated signals are used in several ways to identify and to classify objects of different kinds. RADAR and SONAR are good examples for that kind of technical systems.
Patterns derived from signal and image sensors describe scenarios and the status of systems and often allow for the classification of different features and the recognition of content.
Signals and data are the source of generating information and intelligence to support leaders in decision-making processes.
Across industries, cyber security threats are becoming increasingly focused on the digital sphere.
DITS takes care of security-related projects and innovations. The broad range of tasks is a challenge, but it also offers opportunities for many ideas, technologies and enterprises. DITS provides assistance and support to get projects going.
Digital signals, data and information are relevant for security and safety issues - for each of us
