First HYDIS User Needs Workshop Held in Paris

Paris, France - 28 June, 2024 - The first of four workshops was held at MBDA FR in Paris, bringing together technical experts from Participating States and Industry.

After the Kick-Off meeting on June 14, 2024, the Hypersonic Defence Interceptor System (HYDIS) Programme officially began its full implementation, adhering to its ambitious schedule.

This workshop aimed to initiate a fruitful discussion in order to achieve a shared understanding of the operational scenarios for the future interceptor, and to establish and prioritize key evaluation criteria for selecting the most promising missile interception solution.

The workshop effectively met its goals, demonstrating the strong commitment of all contributing Nations and Industry to this EU co-funded programme.

“The European Hypersonic Defence Interceptor System” (HYDIS) is a project co-funded by the European Union, under the European Defence Fund, and by four Participating States (PSs) which are France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. OCCAR has been entrusted by the European Commission (EC) for the indirect management of the action by the signature of a Contribution Agreement. OCCAR, as Contracting Authority, has concluded a contract with the HYDIS consortium to implement the programme, on behalf of EU and the Member States.

Co-funded by the European Union. Views and opinions expressed are however those of the author(s) only and do not necessarily reflect those of the European Union or the European Commission. Neither the European Union nor the European Commission can be held responsible for them.
