SEA Defence is a feasibility study, which aims to provide a roadmap of technologies to be included in next generation of naval platforms and pursued in further European development programmes.
Following the selection last June of the SEA Defence project by the European Commission (EC) within the European Defense Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP 2019), the consortium is proud to announce the official start of the project.
The SEA Defence kick-off took place on December 14th and was attended by representatives of the consortium, of the EC and of the participating EU Member States.
The SEA Defence project is supported by participating EU Member States, led by the Netherlands Ministry of Defence. The support of Member States is essential in order to ensure that the results of the project will lead to actual next generation naval capabilities which will effectively support the European naval forces against potential future threats.
SEA Defence is a collaboration of SEA Naval, including Damen, Naval Group, Navantia,
SAAB Kockums, thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, Lürssen Defence, TNO, MARIN, Odense Maritime Technology, CTN, and still to be completed by key partners who took part in the proposal preparation phase.
