Preparatory Action on Defence Research: Force protection and advanced soldier systems beyond current programmes (Call PADR-FPSS-2017): looking for partners from the Defense Area Industry and companies offering advanced camouflage solutions
Summary:
Italian company specialized in electronic warfare systems and integration of electronic and ICT systems for avionic, naval and ground platforms is seeking partners to prepare a proposal under "Force protection and advanced soldier systems beyond current programmes" call aiming at developing an integrated system for the operative support of the military squads to enhance soldiers´ safety in critical scenarios. Partners should be member of defense area industry (companies or research center).
Description:
The company lead partner of the project has been founded in 1998 and has therefore a strong experience in electronic warfare systems and integration of electronic and ICT systems for avionic, naval and ground platforms. It has several commercial and industrial partners in Italy and worldwide both on consolidated and emerging markets.
Starting from a multifunction system, developed for the management of the firefighter brigades, the project will deal with force protection and advanced soldier systems and will aim to develop an integrated system for the operative support of the military squads able to enhance situational awareness, operational effectiveness and soldiers´ safety against threats in critical scenarios. A crucial aspect in the design of the system´s architecture will be the interoperability with multi-national and multi-tasking vehicles, infrastructures and soldier systems.
Through partnership with other European companies, the objective of the lead partner is to develop an integrated system as requested by the call "Preparatory Action on Defence Research on Force protection and advanced soldier systems beyond current programmes".
Based on civil application, the project will develop a new one able to fit into military standards and integrated with an adaptive camouflage system to be developed by the partner (to be identified). The new integrated system will be tested on materials developed by the partners (to be identified).
This project is embedded in the "Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR)" which is a concrete step aimed at assessing and demonstrating the added-value of EU supported defence research and technology (R-Y-T). The relevant results are expected to further deepen European defence cooperation, addressing capability shortfalls, and to strengthen European defence stakeholders. The European Commission launched the PADR with a view of developing a future European Defence Research Programme (EDRP) as part of the EU´s next Multiannual Financial Framework (2021-2027).

The activities on which the project will focus are :
- generic soldier of the future systems architecture, tailor-made blast, ballistic and CBRN (Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear) protection of military personnel with a focus on research and technology development in innovative and lighter materials, also with the advantages of the 3D printing. One of the project goal will be the integration of sensor system on such materials;
- adaptive camouflage: advanced active and passive camouflage methods which are able to rapidly reconfigure or change upon changing environment;
- stealth and secured communication: design and development of a communication system able to keep an efficient data exchange among the squad´s component, including voice, images and videos data. Moreover, the communication should be stealth and secure against enemies.
The typologies of partners searched should be:
- member of defense area industry, interested in research upon materials for Tailor-made blast, ballistic and CBRN protection of military personnel or
- company offering advanced active and passive camouflage solutions which are able to rapidly reconfigure or change to various patterns according to the surrounding environment in order to deceit sensor system and observation means.
