Call for proposals 2019 - Unmanned Systems PADR-US-2019 Closed!


Unmanned systems are already broadly used by the armed forces to conduct a wide variety of tasks. Technological improvements and breakthroughs in microelectronics, data processing, guidance, navigation and control, as well as increased complexity of the military tasks and missions are expected to broadly expand the use of unmanned systems in the defence domain.
The extensive, novel and perhaps intensive operation of unmanned systems in homogeneous and heterogeneous swarms, operated by or/ and operating together with human actors requires addressing technical aspects concerning the interoperability and standardisation of different systems, equipment, components, procedures in order to maximise and optimise the adoption and integration of unmanned systems in the armed forces.
