This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is seeking proposals for innovative technologies that provide improved methods to protect small groups (1-10 personnel) of dismounted troops in the field.
Within defence and security, protection of personnel is a priority area and deployment of rapid protection solutions for dismounted troops on the front-line is of high importance. This competition seeks to access recent developments in materials science and/or novel design technologies to provide advanced and readily deployable protection solutions for our troops.
In this phase of the competition, DASA is seeking proposals that can be developed into a deployable battlefield solution.
Up to £480k is available to fund at least two proposals in this phase, which must start at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5 (or closely approaching), in order to achieve TRL 6 by the end of Phase 3.
Applications for Phase 3 of this competition close on Thursday 11 February 2021 at midday (GMT).
