The Executive Summary of the study is available on the EDA website.

 

 

INEA CALL 2015 results in € 53.5 million for military SESAR projects: With the July approval by EU Member States, 14 military projects on SESAR deployment will receive a total of € 53.5 million in EU funding under the 2015’s call for proposals of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) published by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA-call). In its role of military coordinator for SESAR deployment, EDA had supported Member States to identify and prepare bids for this call.

Inaugural Test and Evaluation conference delivers results

 

Rome - 16 December, 2014 European Defence Agency

 

The inaugural European Test and Evaluation Community Days Conference took place on 25-26 November 2014 in Rome. It gathered more than 100 participants from twelve Member States, and was also supported by Switzerland and Serbia. 

 

The conference was held as part of the Defence Test and Evaluation Base (DTEB) framework, a European Defence Agency (EDA) initiative which aims to develop Pooling & Sharing opportunities in the field of experimentation, test and evaluation capabilities for EU Member States.

 

Bottom-up approach

“What we need is a large-scale European network of defence test and evaluation centres“, stressed Rini Goos, EDA Deputy Chief Executive. Giampaolo Lillo, EDA Cooperation Planning and Support Director and chairman of the event, added that “a bottom-up approach is the right way to achieve this objective”.

The event itself sought to discuss potential ways of working together in order to optimise the European Test & Evaluation Base network, thus improving defence acquisition outcomes in a time of budgetary pressure. Four main sessions were held, focussing on policy, project management, European test and evaluation capabilities and EDA support to test & evaluation (T&E) cooperation in Europe.

 

Recommendations

Based upon the success of the event, it was decided that further meetings of the same kind will be arranged in the future. More importantly, this first conference produced a number of recommendations to the DTEB Plenary Group to encourage greater collaboration within the EU T&E community. These include:

 

  • Enabling tangible cooperation between European test and evaluation centres
  • Inviting all Member States (including Switzerland and Serbia) to make the best use of the existing DTEB tool by populating its database
  • Pursuing the identification of new T&E capabilities requiring further investigation and which could be included in the Agency’s Capability Development Plan
  • Enhancing mutual recognition of test procedures, standardisation and qualification
  • Promoting currently available tools within the European Defence Agency, such as the Codaba, the Defence Industry Directory or the CDP

DTEB Database: a future EDA tool to support Test and Evaluation capabilities development
Brussels | Jul 15, 2013 European Defence Agency
 

The Defence Test and Evaluation Base (DTEB) is a mechanism to increase the pooling and sharing of experimentation, test and evaluation capabilities for EU Member States. The DTEB is being progressed with the governance arrangements of the DTEB Development Plan agreed in 2010. An initial requirement set by pMS was the need for capability information sharing.


To meet this initial requirement, a web-based, access protected, DTEB Database is currently in preparation at EDA and scheduled to go online in 2014.
The overall objective of the DTEB Database project is to put in place, on a European scale, a Test & Evaluation (T&E) support tool to improve information sharing during the development or acquisition of defence equipment. The project will help answer the need of continuous optimization of T&E capabilities and adaptation to nationally and internationally defined requirements. Participating T&E Centres defined at national level, T&E experts as well as capability programme managers and other users will be entitled to access and contribute to the Database.


Participating T&E Centres will be able to:
• show and offer their own T&E capabilities to the European Defence Community
• be considered in European Capability, Research and Armament projects
• participate in European Pooling and Sharing initiatives


DTEB end-users will be able to:
• quickly identify potential cooperation partners for T&E activities
• implement European T&E capabilities in their projects
• quickly obtain details of Subject Matter Experts to seek advice


Transparency of information on T&E plans and activities, visibility of T&E capabilities, harmonisation of methods, cooperation between T&E facilities and competencies will be key elements to ensure the effectiveness of DTEB. This is why a bottom-up approach to this database application will guide the initiative. Test & Evaluation Centres recognized at national level and governmental Defence Project managers are invited to join and to express interest for participation.


Once launched, the DTEB Database will constitute a valuable tool for T&E experts, industrial consortium and programme managers, who will benefit from the Database as final users.
