Opinion No.18: Collaborative air and space combat operations in Europe

Joint opinion paper of the AAE and the DGLR

Enabling collaborative operations is a major challenge considering the variety of air and space assets in Europe. One cannot wait for wartime situations to develop, but should implement concrete measures to build collaborative capabilities in Europe: from the initial requirements and throughout the whole lifecycle, whatever the nationality of the equipment maker.

This opinion paper, drawn up by experts from AAE and DGLR, proposes recommendations on issues requiring specific attention, focusing on digital aspects that are particularly critical in air and space applications.
