Funds for: Developing advanced radiofrequency (RF) systems for defence applications 
Main beneficiaries: Any legal entities

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Design compact, highly performing and lightweight multifunction RF systems;
* Develop European advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) technology allowing an optimal combination of radar, communication and EW functions into a single multifunction RF system

Priorities
* R&D assessment: cover an R&D assessment for a joint Union development programme for a multifunction RF (radar, EW and communication) system based on AESA technology without end-user restrictions by third countries, including a technology roadmap:
– Criticality mapping: identify materials, components and/or technologies that need foremost priority support because of technological or economic bottlenecks;
– R&T activities at the system level as well as at the component level in line with the proposed roadmap and criticality mapping
* The implementation of both R&T subtopics is intended to target at least TRL 4 (technology validated in lab)

Among financed actions 
* Studies;
* Technology development and integration;
* Testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment;
* Producing plans and arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved products, processes or services;
* Large-scale prototyping, testing, demonstrating, or piloting

Additional information
* This call for proposals is a restricted call for proposals. In the first instance, only concept notes will be evaluated

* Initial duration of the action: 30 months

* Eligibility:
– Be a legal entity;
– Be established in one of the Member States of the European Union, including their overseas departments;
– Be established in one of the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT) linked to the Member State;

– The consortium must involve at least three legal entities. Each of the three must be established in a different EU Member State or Norway. All three legal entities must be independent of each other;

– Proposals must intend to target TRL 4;

– Members of a consortium are required to conclude a consortium agreement, in principle prior to the signature of the grant agreement
