Industrial Research & Validation for Civil-military Interoperability & Coordination

Summary

Project results are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes.

  • Environment.
  • Capacity.
  • Operational efficiency.
  • Security.
  • Civil–military coordination.

Detailed Call Description

To achieve the expected outcomes, all or some of the following should be addressed.

  • Access to airspace. This element will involve further develop the seamless access to airspace to both civil and military users (R&I need: access to airspace and SWIM). It includes, for example, the following features:
    • Advanced dynamic mobile areas.
    • Mission trajectory management.
    • Interoperability with U-space.
  • Data-sharing. This refers to the availability of data (e.g. aeronautical, meteorological, environmental and flight data) in a digital format to improve air picture development (R&I need: military surveillance capabilities).
  • Military surveillance capabilities. This refers to the availability of data (e.g. aeronautical, meteorological, environmental and flight data) in a digital format to improve military surveillance capabilities (R&I need: military surveillance capabilities).
  • Connectivity and access to CNS infrastructure. This refers to the development of a service-driven approach to the CNS infrastructure that accommodates both civil and military needs (R&I need: connectivity and access to CNS infrastructure). It includes, for example, the following features.
    • Joint utilisation of the CNS infrastructure.
    • Avionics interoperability.
  • Cybersecurity. This refers to the development of cybersecurity and data protection solutions, which should be considered holistically as part of an end-to-end information management process. This includes personnel education, training and capacity building, and changes to technical infrastructure in the context of increased cooperation and information-sharing among civil and military authorities. It also includes addressing potential combined attack scenarios involving signal in space attack vectors (R&I need: cybersecurity).
