Hovemere evaluates the Alexandrite Laser
Hovemere has used its expertise in Lidar development and use to support evaluation of the exciting new diode-pumped Alexandrite Laser developed by Midaz Lasers for space-based remote sensing.
Hovemere joins 'Green-Wake'
Hovemere has joined the consortium of the FP7 project 'Green-Wake' and will take responsibility for designing and building the Lidar system for detection of wake vortexes and wind shear which is being developed as part of that project. Wake vortexes and wind shear are potential causes of accidents and injuries to passengers and crew of all aircraft types, particularly during takeoff and landing. Successful development of the Green-Wake system would also offer an opportunity to improve the efficiency of the world's busiest airports, reducing journey times and passenger delays.
Hovemere contributes to the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT)
A milestone has been passed in the development of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) with the delivery of the conceptual design of the Adaptive Optics Calibration Unit (AOCU) for this instrument. Hovemere has been collaborating with Active Space Technologies S.A. from Portugal to design this critical instrument which will allow the groundbreaking E-ELT to reach its full potential.
