Call for proposals 2017 - Technological demonstrator for enhanced situational awareness in a naval environment PADR-US-2017 Closed!


The objective of the technological demonstrator is to mature and bring technologies together, for enhancing situational awareness through unmanned systems working alongside manned systems in various complex and extreme environmental circumstances. On the one hand, the focus shall be on the integration of RPAS or other UXS into naval systems (ship interface & combat management system). On the other hand, considering various types of unmanned systems – e.g. aerial, surface and/or submersible platforms – the focus shall be on the transfer of relevant military data and fusing of this data with complementary data from space platforms or manned systems.


Proposals for the topic PADR-US-01-2017 should balance R&T efforts in the following two areas:

  1. Integration in naval systems of close-to-market new or improved existing platforms demonstrator with improved sensors capacity, persistence and autonomy
  2. Demonstration of integration of data from multiple sources in a single predefined tactical picture
