This Study analyses the armaments standardisation approaches of the EU and NATO and it provides an overview of policy initiatives in the domains of maritime information sharing and remotely piloted aircraft systems. In looking at other defence capability areas that may benefit from future policy initiatives on armaments standardisation, the analysis points to military mobility, cyber defence and defence energy management as potential priority areas.

Commissioned by the European Parliament’s Sub-Committee on Security and Defence, the Study also makes a series of recommendations on how European armaments standardisation can be advanced in light of initiatives such as Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) and the European Defence Fund (EDF).
