The budget of two EU research projects to study marine defense technologies
The European Commission has unveiled a number of new European Defense Industrial Development (EDIDP) programs, including DECISMAR and SEA Defense, two new European maritime projects.
The goal of the DECISMAR project is to develop a decision support toolbox (DSTx) that runs as an integrated IT environment with cyber security and anti-future security. DSTx is a dynamic and interactive approach to feasibility studies that aims to support the promotion of maritime surveillance under the scope of current or future high-level operational requirements (HLOR).
The European Union will contribute € 7.5 million to the project (€ 7.8 million of the total cost), which will include more than 42 months of study, design, prototyping and testing.
Twelve companies from seven countries, including Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy and Spain, are participating in the project.
