Novadem has integrated a consortium of 10 companies and institutions based in France, Belgium and Cyprus who will collaborate on a project called LynkEUs under the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP).
This LynkEUs project, coordinated by the French company MBDA (European Leader in missiles and missiles systems design), and funded by Europe with €6.5m, seeks to develop a beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) missile attack capability using aerial and terrestrial robotised observation tools. With this project, the development of the coupling between MBDA’s MMP missile and Novadem’s NX70 drone designation capabilities will be strengthened.
In addition to drones, Novadem will bring its expertise in optronic payload for aerial and land platforms to the consortium. The EDIDP has been designed to reinforce the European Union’s strategic autonomy in Defence.
