The EPIIC project is dedicated to developing advanced cockpit avionics for future fighter aircraft that can meet the challenges of modern air warfare. To achieve this, the project focuses on some key features that are critical:
Enhanced Air Power Capabilities: The EPIIC project aims to enhance air power capabilities for the European Armed Forces by developing innovative and disruptive technologies for future air warfare and collaborative combat.
Disruptive Concepts of Human-Machine Cooperation: EPIIC requires disruptive concepts of human-machine cooperation using new technologies to create a completely immersive environment, including fighter cockpit-related technologies such as adaptive HMI, innovative virtual assistant interactions, large area display, helmet-mounted display, canopy projection, and new multi-modal interactions.
Symbiotic Teaming Between Systems and Pilots: The project focuses on creating a symbiotic teaming between systems and pilots, where pilots supervise all manned and unmanned platforms under their responsibility in a complex environment.
European Technological Autonomy: EPIIC consists of more than thirty organizations from twelve European countries, including major industrial companies, university research departments, innovative start-ups, and mid-caps, all striving to achieve European technological autonomy and eradicate dependencies on third-party technologies identified in legacy fighter cockpit avionics.
