Catch the ChemBio SCENT! Help the MOD and DOD screen and analyse hazardous ChemBio materials with novel technologies

Up to £1 million available to help the MOD and DOD screen, collect and exploit hazardous ChemBio materials using novel technologies

Detecting the production and use of hazardous chemical and biological (ChemBio) materials is an enduring challenge in the defence and security community. From sample collection and storage to rapid screening and identification of hazardous materials of interest – new safe and efficient approaches are required to meet various technology challenges during this process.

To help address challenges in the successful identification of ChemBio materials and to bring perpetrators to justice, DASA is pleased to launch a new Themed Competition called Catch the ChemBio SCENT. This competition is jointly funded by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) and the US Department of Defense (DOD) via the Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD).
