"The NEWA project aims at addressing and fully characterizing limiting factors in EU which limit the access to required technology and capabilities, creating large dependence on critical technologies from outside Europe specifically in space techniques applications.
This mainly originates from the large number of past and on-going efforts conducted in space-based and air-based surveillance systems design and development in the US. In particular NEWA will be focussed on Techniques and Technology development in the MTI framework.
The idea for space-based MTI capabilities was envisaged several years ago, and experiments and pre-cursor programs were implemented in the US since 90ies. However, achievements and findings are not generally public due to dual-use of such components (Defence and Security), which poses restrictions on their export.
NEWA Action is intended to perform a thorough Technology Assessment and identify ad hoc Roadmaps for EU Research & Development in the field of space-based Reconnaissance & Surveillance (R&S), which allow reducing the mentioned dependence from non EU capabilities and technologies. The NEWA results will offer a way to European policy makers and main stakeholders (industrial players and institutions) for efficiently directing common efforts towards a shared objective: the establishment of next-generation space-based R&S capabilities in support of the European Security and Defence Policy."
