The idea of a collective European defence is as old as the story of European integration itself. From the ashes of World War 2, it wouldn{u2019}t take long to see an incredible idea emerge : what if European countries, busy stitching their wounds after half a decade of devastating conflict, could start cooperating on defence issues and promote peace together ? Iconoclastic as it sounded at the time, the idea was nevertheless at the heart of some of the very first post-WW2 treaties that were drafted to banish any possibility of war from the continent. In March 1947, a Treaty of ?Alliance and Mutual Assistance? was signed in Dunkirk by France and the United Kingdom. The two countries vowed to ?cooperate closely with one another as well as with the other United Nations in preserving peace and resisting aggression?, in a move that was primarily aimed to prevent any possible future German aggression in Europe. The following year, in March 1948, the signature of the Treaty of Brussels saw the extension of this initial effort to three additional countries : Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. The signatories made their intent even clearer. Stating that this Treaty was meant to ?afford assistance to each other [..] in maintaining international peace and security and in resisting any policy of aggression?, they summarised their alliance as one for ?collaboration in economic, social and cultural matters, and for collective self-defence

Refocusing defence : the 2012 EDA annual conference report by European Defence Agency( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2012 EDA Annual Conference "REFOCUSING DEFENCE: European Perspective on Defence Cooperation in a Time of Financial Challenge" gathered over 350 senior representatives from governments, parliaments, EU institutions, military staff, NATO, defence industry, academia and media. The conference provided the platform for a high-level debate on Pooling & Sharing; for increasing the efficiency of the European defence market and the strategic priorities for the defence technological and industrial base; and for generating new thinking on how most effectively to harness available resources. It concluded that enhanced defence cooperation is the only viable way to overcome the challenge of financial austerity. -- EU Bookshop

Military Airworthiness( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Member States Civil Aviation Authorities is are responsible for developing and maintaining the regulatory framework that ensures that all civil aircraft within Europe are airworthy and safe. This legal framework arising from the convention of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) is detailed in EU regulations. For national sovereignty reasons, military and state operated aircraft (e.g. police, coastguard) are exempted from this legislation. Each Member State is therefore individually responsible for ensuring through their own domestic regulations that the military and state aircraft they operate are airworthy and can be flown safely. The result of this is that each EU Member State has developed its own unique national military airworthiness regulations for overseeing their military aircraft. This has resulted in little commonality between the Member States' military airworthiness regulations which leads to barriers to achieving Pooling & Sharing opportunities in the military aviation domain
European Union contractors support to operations platform tailored solutions for complex demand( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The European Union Contractor Support to Operations (CSO) platform serves as a forum for interaction between experts from national authorities and potential or actual contractors, suppliers or service providers (economic operators) to exchange information in order to support operations. The platform is accessible through the Procurement Gateway, the One Stop Shop for defence-related business opportunities and information. It consists of a publicly accessible section and a restricted domain for registered governmental experts and economic operators. The main features of the platform are: a company database, an area to advertise business opportunities, the possibility to publish available air transport as well as a Virtual On-Site Information Centre (VOSIC) for EU crisis management missions and operations. Through the platform, EDA facilitates interaction between national authorities and prospective contractors. The Agency is not automatically involved in a possible contracting process
Connecting defence everywhere( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In military operations satellite communications are fundamental for Communication, Command and Control. They also allow operational effectiveness of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance platforms, including Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). Member States often resort to commercial SatCom either to complement more resilient military capabilities or as the sole means to effectively conduct military operations with appropriate connectivity. Five European Member States today operate their own military satellites. The others use commercial solutions. Lessons learnt from recent national and multinational operations have proven that fragmented procurement is not efficient. That's why the EDA was tasked to set up and run a cell specialised in the common and central procurement of space based connectivity services

In 2014, EDA especially focused on the implementation of the guidance and taskings provided by the December 2013 European Council, with a particular focus on the four key capability programmes identified by Member States. In this regard, the launch of negotiations with industry regarding the acquisition of a multinational fleet of multirole air-to-air refuelling aircraft on the basis of common requirements was a major milestone. Other cooperative projects also yielded tangible results, demonstrating the clear added value of defence cooperation at the EU level. Together with Member States, the Agency continued to organise multinational exercises aimed at improving the readiness of European aircrews that will be better prepared when they deploy to future operations. In 2014 alone, more than 70 fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft took part in EDA-organised live-flying events, involving around 200 European aircrew. With a view to strengthening European defence industry, and in order to address the effect of the decline in European defence spending in research and technology (R&T), EDA focused its efforts on activities generating R&T projects, dual-use research and is supporting the Commission in setting up the Preparatory Action on CSDP-related research . New incentives have also been proposed in order to facilitate the launch of the cooperative defence programmes that our industrial base needs in order to thrive. VAT exemption has been granted to several EDA projects and is now a major incentive for Member States to commit to collaborative projects. Significant progress was also achieved in the field of standardisation and certification

Future capabilities emerging trends and key priorities( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Increased insecurity on Europe{u2019}s borders combined with continued constraint on military budgets at home has refocused the debate about defence capabilities in Europe. As capability development is a long-term process, one vital question is ?how will Europe retain and develop the capabilities needed to react to the threats that may arise in the coming decades ?? Since 2008, the European Defence Agency (EDA ) has been producing a Capability Development Plan (CDP) to answer this question. It looks at future security scenarios and makes recommendations about the capabilities European militaries will need to react to different possible developments. The CDP is a comprehensive planning method providing a picture of European military capabilities over time. It can be used by Member States{u2019} defence planners when identifying priorities and opportunities for cooperation. The European Defence Agency is coordinating this work done in close conjunction with Member States and other stakeholders such as the EU Military Committee. The CDP benefits from several inputs such as the Headline Goal Process, studies on long-term trends, lessons from operations and information on current plans and programs. This brochure outlines the main features of the latest revision of the CDP, reflecting on current trends and proposing a list of priority actions
Defence Standardisation and EDSTAR( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The harmonisation of defence standards is a key enabler for the interoperability of equipment used by European Armed forces. Increased harmonisation of standards offers many benefits to Member States for the whole life cycle of their defence equipment {u2013} from development, testing and evaluation of material, through to maintenance, and finally disposal. It is estimated that savings of between 10 to 50% could be made through a more intensive use of civil standards in the military sector
