In the scope of the European Secure Software-defined Radio (ESSOR) programme, managed by OCCAR, ESSOR MIDS, to which Hensoldt is subcontractor, has been awarded a multimillion euro contract to contribute to the concept development of new hardware and encryption techniques to build the basis of a new data distribution system, the company has announced in a press release. This contract is co-funded by four ESSOR nations (France, Germany, Italy and Spain) and the European Commission in the frame of the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) under grant agreement No 044.
ESSOR MIDS, a successor to the existing MIDS datalink, is expected to provide European high-performance data link capabilities including a new European encryption, high capability wave forms with extended Link 16 functionalities and an Intra Flight Data Link Wave Form (IFDLWF) while securing interoperability within NATO and Allied Nations.
The ESSOR MIDS project is to set the path to a long-term structured cooperation to develop joint technologies for European military software-defined radio systems. The aim is to provide data and voice communication technologies among European forces in joint military operations.
