PROJECTS

-
BE : not yet involved

-
Type :

-
Cat B, 2 to 7 cMS, 0,3 up to 25 M


-
OB :
±
1/year

-
Content: radar oriented

-
Characteristics :

-
Low interaction with BE civil industries

-
R&T
limits

vague :

-
Systems vs components : IAP1

-
Technology vs functionality : IAP3 (optics) & IAP4 (CIS (
-
networks)


-
Impact for/work of R&T excellence centers (EC)

-
Get informed on possible future partnerships

-
Get some results / feedback from other EC

-
Give advice to EDA and work as experts more focused on realistic
R&T approaches

-
Propose new R&T agenda / projects
