CW-ITP

Welcome to CW ITP

Do not miss the SME / Academia days !

June 30th at MBDA Le Plessis-Robinson in France

July 7th at MBDA Stevenage in UK

With a budget of up to €13M per year, the CW ITP programme funds proposals from Industry, SMEs and Academia on an annual cycle with the aim of developing novel, exploitable technologies for generation-after-next missile systems.

The CW ITP develops novel, exploitable technologies for generation-after-next missile systems to solve the capability challenges for future Anglo-French Guided Weapons capability.

Our strategy is to strengthen the technological base, allow for better understanding of common future needs and challenges for generation-after-next missile systems.

To achieve this, we seek to partner SME and Academic Institutions from the UK and France with Global Defence Industry players.

The CW ITP Programme is OPEN to all prospective technology bids

For new partners interested in bidding projects under the CW ITP, and for partners coming across from the MCM ITP please register for membership so you are ready for the soon to be launched ETA Challenge Call.

Enduring Technical Areas

This is the larger innovation space, with 5 technical areas, each led by a leading French or British company in that area.

Mission, Systems & Algorithms

The Mission, Systems and Algorithms Enduring Technical Area is jointly led by MBDA UK and MBDA France. This ETA is focused on the development of cross cutting system technologies such as Image processing techniques and algorithms, mission systems such as planning and decision aids, guidance and control and navigation systems.

Materials, Structures and Electronics

The Materials, Structures & Electronics ETA is jointly led by MBDA UK and MBDA France. This ETA addresses research into missile materials and structures used in missile manufacture and covering a range of functions, missile electronics and power solutions, Datalinks and communication hardware and Actuation hardware.

You can find out more about ETAs on the Innovation Overview page.

Dynamic Challenges & Disruptors

These are the two smaller innovation areas.

Dynamic Challenges

Dynamic in-year, priority challenges are likely to be addressed through one or more ETA Leads where the challenges fall within or cut across the existing CW ITP technical scope.

Disruptors

Disruptor Tasks are lower-level funded projects of up to 6 months’ duration and are a great opportunity for innovators to test their emerging ideas.

You can find out more about these on the Innovation Overview page.
