BorderUAS Horizon 2020 project announcement
Dirigent Acoustics is proud to be an acoustic sensor development work-package leader in BorderUAS Horizon 2020 project.
In BorderUAS, Dirigent Acoustics (aka DIRACS) will be leading all activities in the development and implementation of the Acoustic Sensor. The system will provide an audio stream for sound classification and generate a real-time acoustic map of a surveyed area that will localize significant sound sources on the ground and in the air. The acoustic sensor will consist of a microphone array, using a beamforming algorithm to generate a visual presentation of an acoustic field. To improve the quality of the acoustic sensor, DIRACS is also working on developing graphene microphones. This new type of microphone, developed earlier by DIRACS as a functional prototype, shows great potential for various applications, including the requirements of the BorderUAS system in terms of high sensitivity, low self-noise, and extended frequency range.
