The European Defence Fund UWW Work Programme 2023 will focus on enhancing underwater situational awareness and engagement capabilities to protect critical underwater infrastructure and maintain maritime security in the EU. The programme will call for proposals in two areas: unmanned anti-submarine and seabed warfare, and mine counter-measures capabilities. The goal is to develop advanced systems that can monitor the underwater domain, engage underwater threats, combat underwater swarms, and accelerate the detection and identification of all types of mines, among other objectives. The targeted types of activities are design and system prototyping, including upstream and downstream development actions.
