DASA UK: Countering IEDs with novel electronic technologies

  • DASA has launched a new Innovation Focus Area (IFA) called Countering IEDs by Novel Technology and Techniques.
  • Seeking novel electronic technologies that can counter Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)
  • Between £150k – £400k per proposal
  • It is vital that UK military and security users can continue to deploy new countermeasures and technologies to outpace IED threat evolution, to protect service personnel, emergency services and the public against the threat of improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

To address the UK’s need for IED threat detection, the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to launch a new IFA, Countering IEDs by Novel Technology and Techniques. This IFA aims to find and develop innovations that use either the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum or provide an understanding of the RF spectrum in order to detect and disrupt the functionality of IEDs.
