Discover how the adoption of open source software for military projects and software reuse can be differentiators providing strategic and tactical advantages on the battlefield.
European ESSOR project workshop held
The European Defence Agency (EDA) has hosted the third PESCO workshop related to the European Secure Software Defined Radio (ESSOR) project which aims to develop common technologies for European military radios.
The goal is the adoption of common technologies as a standard in order to guarantee the interoperability of EU forces in the framework of joint operations, regardless of which radio platforms are used.
The ESSOR project will provide a secure military communications system, improving voice and data communication between Member States’ armed forces on a variety of platforms. It will also deliver guidelines related to the validation and verification of waveform portability and platform re-configurability, setting up a common security basis to increase interoperability between forces. By ensuring that military radios are fully accessible, shared and used by all Member States, the effectiveness of joint operations can be increased substantially.
Member States participating in the ESSOR project include Belgium, Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Portugal, with Estonia and Ireland as observers. These nations have moved to implement a common architecture analysis of software radios in Europe.
ESSOR project activities are currently performed by the consortium A4ESSOR - Thales (FR), Leonardo (IT), Indra (SP), Radmor (PL), Bittium (FI) and soon Rohde & Schwarz (DE) - through a contract managed by OCCAR.
