CROWN will pave way for European defence innovations and technological sovereignty

Emerging military scenarios with increasing complex threats are demanding new and advanced radiofrequency (RF) systems to ensure the strategic autonomy of the European Union (EU). CROWN project, launched in July 2021 under the EU Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR) program, will address research and technological development activities to go a step further in the development of European next-generation multifunction radiofrequency (RF) system mainly for airborne surveillance platforms based on Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA) technology capable of integrating radar, electronic defence and communications functions into a single compact and lightweight item of equipment. The project will make a significant contribution towards building European industrial defence capability and ensuring industrial independence.
