General information

The International Security Competence Centre GmbH (ISCC) represents an international network of security experts. Members of the ISCC Board of Directors and the international ISCC network of partners have decades of experience in security-related threat- and risk assessment, as well as in security technology and operational security. ISCC services range from catastrophic terrorism to critical assessment of emergency preparedness in case of a major terror attack, laboratory- and field tests of weapon systems and explosives, as well as risk analysis for the National Critical Infrastructure.

ISCC has extensive experience in drone design, construction and application, as demonstrated in EU FP7 project BRIDGE (environmental survey drone) and EU H2020 project TARGET (3D modelling using drone-based photogrammetry). ISCC cooperates with the Austrian Armed Forces, authorizing ISCC to use the Army Proving Ground for drone-tests.  ISCC, jointly with its Austrian partners GEORESEARCH and AIRNAIL, received the DRONE HERO EUROPE 2018 AWARD (category: Start-Up) for its innovative design of swarm-drone technology in photogrammetry.

Role in the project

ISCC leads WP4 and will contribute to the development of different CURSOR drones (Mothership-, Sensor- and Transport Drones), using its decade of expertise in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) development, sensor integration, interface definition, control software and 3D-modeling. Additionally, ISCC will contribute to dissemination activities (WP7).

Participating members in the project 

Prof. Friedrich Steinhäusler

Prof. Friedrich Steinhäusler, PhD is Technical Director at ISCC. As well as Professor Emeritus of Physics and Biophysics at University of Salzburg (Austria), former Director of Government Radiological Measurements Laboratory Salzburg (Austria). Prof. Steinhäusler is the Recipient of Christian Doppler Award in Physics (1974) and Austrian Champion Award for EU research in security (2008). He is the author of over 300 publications on risk- and threat assessment. He chaired NATO terrorism expert groups, addressing new challenges for First responders and civil protection, as well as catastrophic terrorism and first responders. He was involved in several related EU projects (e.g., FP7 BRIDGE, H2020 TARGET).

Lukas Auer, Eng.

Lukas Auer, Eng. is a licenced drone pilot with several thousand hours of practical UAV flight experience in Europe and overseas. He has designed and built several versions of special drones in previous related EU projects (e.g., FP7 BRIDGE, H2020 TARGET). In CURSOR, Mr. Auer contributes to the design of three drone-sensor platforms, as well as laboratory drone tests and proof-of-concept in the field.

Andreas Feichtner, M.Sc., Eng.

Andreas Feichtner, M.Sc., Eng. is a specialist in IT technologies, photogrammetry and georeferenced signal analysis. He has extensive know-how in integrating different sensors into a system, which was demonstrated in previous related EU projects (e.g., FP7 BRIDGE, H2020 TARGET). In CURSOR, Mr. Feichtner is in charge of signal integration originating from the drone-sensor platforms.
