The European Commission Joint Research Centre is seeking Counter-UAS equipment for research and protection of European Commission infrastructure.
The utilization of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly known as “drones,” is experiencing a rapid rise across various industries, including agriculture, transportation, surveying, and surveillance. However, it is crucial to acknowledge the potential misuse of UAS, as they can infringe upon privacy, engage in espionage through camera or sensor usage, intercept telecommunication signals, and pose threats when combined with biological, chemical agents, explosives, or other weapons. Such misuse can result in harm to individuals, disruption of services, and damage to infrastructure.
To address these concerns and ensure the protection of Critical Infrastructure stakeholders, the contracting authority aims to establish a C-UAS living lab. This living lab will focus on enhancing UAS protection for European Commission and European Institution buildings. Under this tender, comprehensive C-UAS solution services are sought for the Berlaymont and Charlemagne buildings in the European quarter of Brussels. The estimated value of the contract is 4,500,000 EUR.
