07 Dec 21. Annual Conference discussed Defence Innovation. The European Defence Agency’s Annual Conference 2021 entitled ‘Innovation in European Defence’ was opened on 7 December with speeches by the Head of the Agency, HR/VP Josep Borrell, and the President of the European Council, Charles Michel. With Covid still around, this year’s conference was held in hybrid format with a vast audience representing the whole European defence spectrum (governments, armed forces, industry, EU institutions, NATO, think tanks and media) either connected remotely or physically present to listen to speeches and panel discussions and also actively take part in debates through Q&A sessions.
Following a brief welcome word by EDA Chief Executive Jiří Šedivý, it was up to the Head of Agency, HR/VP Josep Borrell, to formally open the conference. In his opening speech, Mr Borrell expressed gratitude for this year’s choice of the conference theme because, he said, “our collective ability to innovate, both at EU and at national level, will determine the position of the EU on the global stage in the years to come”. However, the current situation leaves room for improvement as the EU and its Member States need to do “much more” in this field: “We need to do much more together and we need to do it now. We cannot wait. The choice for the EU is simple but a crucial one: either we invest in defence innovation or we will become irrelevant!”.
Mr Borrell insisted on the strategic importance of innovation, not only as an accelerator of economic competition but also as a key tool in the global competition that re-structures the international security environment. “Today, innovation is front and centre in the global strategic competition because it will restructure the international security environment (…) Those who gain a technological edge and set the standards today will dominate the future”, Mr Borrell said. This is also the case at the military level, with emerging disruptive technologies (EDTs), such as Artificial Intelligence. Often dual-natured, impacting both civilian and military domains, such technologies have the potential to alter the character of warfare, he explained: “To retain an edge over competitors and potential adversaries, we must use the potential of emerging technologies and develop high-end capabilities to equip our military forces across the full spectrum”.
“EU and Member States need to do more, together”
Being at the forefront of defence innovation requires that Armed Forces and Ministries of Defence have close cooperation with the civil sector which nowadays is driving both pure technological innovations and innovative uses: “With the rapid development of new technologies in the civilian sphere and their fast weaponization, today, more than ever before, innovation is shaping the global balance of power”.
When comparing the EU and its Member States with other global actors, it is obvious Europe lags far behind in terms of investing in defence innovation, Mr Borrell said, “and the gap is widening”. For proof, “latest EDA data suggest that in 2020 EU Member States spent roughly €2.5 billion on Research & Technology – only 1,2% of the total defence expenditure, with a tendency for further decrease in the next two years, even though the related PESCO commitment sets the bar at 2% of the defence budgets”. Meanwhile, the US Department of Defence invests at least $14 billion each year in research and innovation, around 2% of the whole US defence budget, while Google spends on Research & Development almost 10 times more than what EU defence ministries spend together on Research & Technology. “We can no longer afford to sit on the side-line and watch the others doing. The EU and its Member States need to do much more on defence innovation. And they must do it more together”, he insisted.
Towards a Defence Innovation Hub within EDA
“EDA, as an intergovernmental Agency, has a crucial role to play in defence innovation” as technological innovation has been part of the Agency´s DNA since its creation in 2004, the Head of Agency pursued. Furthermore, there is the idea of establishing a Defence Innovation Hub within the Agency. “This is also one of the deliverables I have put forward in the context of the Strategic Compass”, said Mr Borrell: “By creating a network of defence innovation centres around Europe, this Defence Innovation Hub would promote synergies with the industrial sector; foster an ecosystem of Research & Development in defence and get innovative solutions closer to the military user. I hope this hub will soon be in place!”.
And the Head of Agency to conclude: “Innovation in defence must be anchored in research & technology investments, but also in capability development, concepts and doctrines across all EU Member States (…) EDA is a great example of this integrated approach. Working together with the Commission and with Member States, EDA must ensure that defence innovation is not just an ambition on paper, but a reality!”.
Charles Michel: Support for Defence Innovation Hub within EDA
European Council President Charles Michel said in his keynote speech (via video message, see link above) that the EU’s strategic objective was to increase its ability “to act autonomously to safeguard our interests, uphold our values and way of life, and shape the global future”. “That’s why Europe’s strategic autonomy and our capacity to act alone, if so needed, is high on the agenda of the Heads of State and Governments. In this respect, the upcoming Strategic Compass is of utmost importance as he is meant to provide a vision for Europe’s security and defence policy in the future”, he said. Work on the Compass is progressing well, based on Mr Borrell’s initial proposal presented in November. Further input to the discussions is expected from the December European Council before EU leaders will then adopt the Strategic Compass in March when defence will again be a topic at the European Council.
Europeans have also agree to work on a third EU-NATO declaration “because NATO is the cornerstone of Europe’s security and defence”, Mr Michel stated praising the “unique and essential cooperation” between the two organisations. “We want to deepen this relationship and adapt it to today’s geo-political reality”, he said. However, Europe’s security and defence do not exist “in a vacuum” but are linked to its policies and achievements in other domains too, such as climate change or the digital transition. Through its regulatory power in those domains, Europe could strengthen its clout in the security domain too. “We could take fuller advantage of our instruments if we used them in a more coordinated manner to achieve our strategic goals, for example in trade, development, neighborhood policy, climate policy, visa policy or humanitarian aid. Greater coordination means greater impact”. “We, Europeans, must take our destiny in our own hands, cooperating with our partners when needed and acting autonomously when necessary, to be a credible and efficient global security provider and a soft geopolitical influencer”.
To achieve this, Europe needs more defence innovation, and EDA has a key role to play: “The next 10 years will be crucial for our capability development, and EDA has a unique role to play combining lessons learned from missions and long term technology trends and then integrating this concrete know-how into national defence plans (…) We must continue to link innovative technologies with their possible defence applications. And I know that we can count on you, the European Defence Agency and your unique experience and expertise. Your work is key to facilitating the uptake of defence innovation by our Member States”, Mr Michel stressed.
And the President of the European Council to conclude: “We must also avoid duplication our efforts and wasting our resources. You, the EDA, can help link Member States’ national authorities with each other, and with EU institutions, agencies and bodies. You help identify defence-related technologies point to opportunities and provide a platform for cooperation. And you need a budget to fulfil your growing role. I am in favour of the creation of a European defence innovation network. I also support the creation of a European Defence Innovation Hub inside EDA”. (Source: EDA)

08 Dec 21. Aerospace: Key Takeaways from the Morgan Stanley Space Summit. A number of important themes emerged from the 4th Annual MS Space Summit. An influx of capital is accelerating the innovation cycle and the democratization of space continues at pace. Novel use cases and business models are also emerging as the sector swells with new entrants.
4th Annual MS Space Summit
We offer our sincere thanks to all of the participants who made today’s 4th Annual Morgan Stanley Space Summit such a successful event. We offer some high-level takeaways from the summit below. For further discussion, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Morgan Stanley Space Team.
Show Me the Profit
- 2021 marks a banner year for space as fresh capital pours into the sector.
- After a wave of recent space de-SPACings, investors are now turning their focus toward execution, profitability and return on investment.
- The challenge facing investors is separating wheat from chaff and identifying companies that have not only discriminating technology, but also sustainable business models.
Commercialization and Militarization Trends Continue
- Reductions in launch and payload costs continue to drive commercialization.
- Space infrastructure players are keeping costs low by leveraging COTS components and avoiding expensive space-rated parts when not critical to system designs.
- Near-peer threats continue to drive U.S. investment in space, particularly as the barriers to space access have fallen for adversaries and new threats (e.g., hypersonics) are placing a premium on space-based tracking capabilities.
- While satellite redundancy in LEO can increase resiliency, LEO constellations must be cyber-hardened to avoid loss of control over assets and data flow interference.
- A burgeoning race for the first commercial space stations stands as a catalyst for in-space manufacturing, biotech, and more novel ideas.
The Space Debris Conundrum
- Russia’s recent ASAT test and the risk to satellites from space debris were hot topics at today’s summit.
- We heard a chorus of concern over the threat from debris, but with varying degrees of urgency.
- Companies are exploring technical solutions to debris mitigation, but are doing so with caution, as the jury is still out regarding who will foot the cleaning bill.
SPace as a Service (SPaaS)
- Moving from Sensor to Data to Analytics… to Insights that unlock the economic value of space.
- The value-added in the space economy is migrating away from hardware and towards data/analysis.
- Getting out of a ‘single modality’ mindset in EO and sat comms.
- Space is becoming ‘awash in sensors.’ The key is combining them.
- Space infrastructure servicing and logistics are emerging as key themes in the next wave of venture investing.
The Many Paths to Mass Market SATCOM
- Each of the four SATCOM companies we hosted is charting a different path to much wider adoption of SATCOM services. They included two current operators (ViaSat, Iridium) and two new entrants (AST SpaceMobile, Astranis).
- It remains to be seen which path may prove correct or if multiple paths can succeed. Plans span orbital altitudes, asset sizes and service offerings.
- The theoretical TAM is well over $100bn, but questions about core economics remain.
- The next 1-3 years will be key given the number of planned service launches.
Space from an ESG Perspective
- Earth observation companies are seeing new demand driven by a growing emphasis on sustainability.
- Emerging use cases include leveraging space-based data to monitor emissions, track deforestation and map the world’s coral reefs.

08 Dec 21. Egypt to host its first naval defense expo in 2022. Egypt’s Defense Ministry is launching the country’s first naval defense exhibition in September 2022, dubbed “Naval Power,” according to the commander of the Navy.
Lt. Gen. Ahmed Khaled Hassan Said Ahmed made the announcement during the Egypt Defence Expo, which ran Nov. 29-Dec. 2. The Ministry of Military Affairs will organize the event in cooperation with Arabian World Events, which helped with EDEX 2021.
“After hitting its goal with more than 400 exhibitors at EDEX 2021, Egypt is moving to more specialized defense exhibitions, and the naval expo to be held is in accordance with all the country’s efforts to boost its naval and maritime capabilities,” Ahmad Eliba, a defense expert at the Egyptian Center for Strategic Studies, told Defense News.
But there’s no shortage of regional defense shows already on the books. Other events scheduled for 2022 include:
- The unmanned systems expo UMEX in the United Arab Emirates for February.
- The Qatari maritime exhibition DIMDEX for March.
- Saudi Arabia’s World Defense Show for March.
- The Iraq Defense Exhibition, or IQDEX, for March.
- The International Aerospace and Defense Exhibition, or IADE, in Tunisia for May 2022.
- The Bahrain International Airshow for November.
- The special operations forces show SOFEX in Jordan in late October and early November.
- The Gulf Defense and Aerospace Exhibition and Conference in Kuwait for December.
The year 2023 also has its share of the shows, including:
- The International Defence Exhibition and Conference, or IDEX, in the UAE for February.
- IDEX’s accompanying maritime exhibition, NAVDEX, also in February.
- The Dubai Airshow in the UAE for November.
- Egypt’s EDEX for December.
- And likely Turkey’s International Defence Industry Fair, or IDEF, which is biennial; however, the show’s official website does not have a date yet.
Asked about how Egypt’s planned naval expo will stand out in a saturated market of defense shows, Mohamed al-Kenany, who leads the military studies unit at the Cairo-based Arab Forum for Analyzing Iranian Policies, said the event is partly meant to boost local production.
“Middle Eastern countries are continuously supporting their defense capabilities,” he told Defense News. “This show is not a general show; it is specialized in naval power, and Egypt is working to localize the production of its naval assets, so it all falls into place.”
He added that the expo not only serves to attract international companies to offer their systems to the region, but also as a platform for Egypt to support localization efforts as part of the government’s Egypt Vision 2030 initiative.
“Egypt chose September for the naval show because it is the month the maritime drills and trainings are held extensively,” he explained. “And with all the ports Egypt is inaugurating on the Mediterranean – like [expansion at the] Alexandria [port], the Port of El-Dekheila, and the naval military bases including ‘3 July Naval Base’ and ‘East Port Said Naval Base’ — Egypt definitely needs to secure them, and the expo will play a crucial role in this.” (Source: Google/ Defense News))

Our 2022 conference theme:
Integrating Electromagnetic Effects across all Domains
The control of the electromagnetic spectrum is a fundamental requirement in modern warfare in all domains whether land, sea air, space, information or cyber. Systems operating in these domains must be able to communicate, make decisions, share information and take actions in a coordinated, controlled and effective manner using the electromagnetic spectrum.
To achieve and maintain this dominance, electronic warfare, radar, navigation, situational awareness and other information and communication systems require significant levels of integration and interoperability across all types of platforms and in all domains. Innovative integrated systems requirements, applications and enabling technologies will be considered from intelligence data gathering, analysis and data fusion through to the deployment of countermeasures and other actions that use the electromagnetic spectrum.
