ExcEED (trustEd and fleXible system-on-Chip for EuropEan Defence applications)

Cyber Security

The EXCEED project aims at creating an European supply chain of reconfigurable, flexible and trustable Programmable system-on-a-chip(SoC) family targeting a number of ruggedized and secure defence applications such as for RF sensors and signal processing arrays, flexible radios, secure positioning and navigation, UAV data links, military networks, flexible cryptography engines, dismounted soldier, guidance and mission critical controllers.

The security architecture of the SoC is studied in detail to cope with EU Classified information and Defence specificities as well as country-specific requirements, through protection, personalization and life-cycle management. The project also focuses on System Development Tools. The secure chip is fabricated in a trusted environmen tin Europe. The demonstrator chip will be a mid-scale member of the family.

The EXCEED project is part of the Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR) launched by the European Commission in 2017 to assess and demonstrate the added-value of EU supported defence research and technology (R&T).
