Patria is involved in a European Union-funded project ‘iFURTHER’ that aims to develop new technologies for long-range air and sea detection.
The project, called iFURTHER (High Frequency Over the Horizon Sensors’ Cognitive Network), is a 3-year research project funded by the European Defence Fund with a total budget of €10.95 million. The consortium participating the project consists of 18 partners from 10 countries.
The project addresses wide area air and sea covert surveillance by developing new concepts of over-the-horizon radar to be integrated into a collaborative network of high-frequency sensors. Ultimately, the project will contribute to developing a persistent and very wide-area EU defence capability to monitor air and sea domains.
