The signature of this contract represents a particular success for OCCAR, the Participating States and their industries, since it represents the first Project in the R&D environment integrated in OCCAR and it also witnesses the capability of the Organisation to manage collaborative defence Programmes throughout their entire life cycle following OCCAR's Through Life Management approach. Moreover, it is the first contract signed by NAVIRIS, that will be followed by other activities, thus increasing the number of common contracts managed by Italy and France in a fully cooperative approach.
The OCCAR-EA Director, Mr Matteo Bisceglia has stated " I would like to thank France and Italy for their continued trust in the Organisation. I am sure that this contract with NAVIRIS is the first step of a long lasting successful cooperation."
Fully committed to the achievement of this result, OCCAR Central Office and FREMM PD Staff have worked in close cooperation with NAVIRIS succeeding despite the very challenging working environment due to COVID 19 pandemic constraint. For this reason, this contract, negotiated for the most part during the lockdown period, represents also the determination of OCCAR, the Participating States and their Industries to start again, stronger than ever … OCCAR delivers!
