CenSec - Center for Defence, Space & Security
CenSec - Center for Defence, Space & Security - is very excited and honoured to have been rewarded funding by the European Defence Fund as part of the Disruptive Technologies project 'Robust and Light AM components for military systems'.
The project presents advanced research for additive manufacturing technologies for defence applications. It will design and manufacture lightweight military grade parts with novel materials for three military use-cases: a light metal emergency wheel, a cargo bay-door hinge and a large-scale antenna
We are looking forward to working with many industry leaders and knowledge institutions to complete this project over the next 36 months.
Following the first ever calls for proposals under the European Defence Fund (EDF), 61 collaborative defence research and development projects with a total EU support of almost €1.2 billion are selected for funding. With the selected proposals, the EDF will support high-end defence capability projects such as the next generation of aircraft fighters, tanks and ships, as well as critical defence technologies such as military cloud, AI, semiconductors, space, cyber or medical counter- measures. It will also spearhead disruptive technologies, notably in quantum technologies and new materials and tap into promising SMEs and start-ups.
