In the Energetic Systems Department, defense research is the current focus of work. Particular emphasis is placed on the modeling, simulation, characterization, system development and testing of explosives. In the civil sector, our energy researchers work in the field of thermal and chemical storage and conversion, while research in the safety and security sector focuses on the development of situation-specific airbag and protection systems as well as on the investigation and analysis of safety hazards and accident scenarios for the industrial sector.
