ST Engineering Antycip Supplies Simulation Power for EU Defence Research Project

The European Union drew on ST Engineering Antycip’s technical expertise for largest-of-its-kind OCEAN 2020 naval research project.

Paris (France), 11th January 2022 – ST Engineering Antycip, a leading global provider of simulation, analysis, modelling, display and virtual-reality solutions, leveraged MAK Technologies’ MAK ONE suite of modelling and simulation tools and lent its technical expertise to the European Union as a partner of the Open Cooperation for European mAritime awareNess (OCEAN 2020), the largest EU-funded defence research project within the union’s Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR).

The three-year, €35 million OCEAN 2020 project, which concluded recently in Brussels, paved the way for future EU naval collaboration by showing how new and existing technologies – including unmanned systems, combat management systems (CMS), naval communications and maritime operation centres – may be used to enhance situational awareness in a maritime environment. OCEAN 2020 was implemented by the European Defence Agency (EDA) and coordinated by aerospace, defence and security company Leonardo, which oversaw a consortium comprising ST Engineering Antycip and 41 other companies, universities and research institutes, as well as national navies and ministries of defence.

Modelling and simulation (M&S) played a crucial role throughout the project, with partners modelling operational concepts to validate the OCEAN 2020 architecture, including simulated sea trials that built upon live demonstrations in the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas. ST Engineering Antycip played a crucial role in these simulated trials (part of WP3, one of the six ‘work packages’ that comprised the project), providing technical support on network simulation, scenario generation and 3D visualisation to the WP3 consortium.
