Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

The USSPS solution will focus on using unmanned semi-fixed sea platforms and building a system that will enhance maritime surveillance.

Greek company ETME will lead the consortium, which also includes defence manufacturers Naval Group and Navantia.

The project was selected late last month by the European Commission through the European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP).

It brings together European industrial majors, as well as research centres.

Applied Intelligence Analytics, Prolexia, Multimedia Workshop, Sener Aeroespacial, SIGNALGENERIX, SMST Designer & Constructors, Techlam, Tecnobit Slu, and Unmanned Teknologies Applications are some of the European industrial players involved in the project.

Research centres, such as the CY.R.I.C Cyprus Research and Innovation Center, Foundation For Research And Technology Hellas (FORTH), and Stichting Maritiem Research Instituut Nederland, are also supporting.

Together, these industrial firms and research centres will create a high-value solution to secure and protect various maritime areas, allowing to cover air, surface and underwater dimensions.

According to Naval Group, the project will develop an ‘unmanned’ highly autonomous, energy efficient and miniaturised oil rig technology-based platform that can integrate various kinds of air, surface and underwater sensors.

These platforms will allow for deployment in any geographical region with meridians, including all types of sea-beds and deep-sea regions. They also enable operation under adverse environmental conditions.
