Call for proposals 2020 - Underwater control contributing to resilience at sea EDIDP-UCCRS-2020 Closed!


Considering the increasing defence maritime forces in the world and the importance of the freedom of manoeuver at sea, naval interdiction and force protection are key preconditions to be met before any deployment and power projection from sea. The 2018 Capability Development Plan (CDP) identifies the need for an improved ability to detect, identify and neutralise or avoid/deceive subsurface threats, including active and passive measures. The 2018 CDP highlights the importance of mine warfare, anti-submarine warfare and harbour protection.

  • EDIDP-UCCRS-MCM-2020: Solutions to detect, identify, counter and protect against mine threats (including those operating at very high depths);
  • EDIDP-UCCRS-MUAS-2020: Solutions to detect, identify, counter and protect against mobile manned, unmanned or autonomous underwater systems (including those operating at very high depths);
