The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new competition on metasurfaces for defence and security.

Metasurfaces

This themed competition is seeking proposals for innovative solutions that will pull ideas from recent breakthroughs in metasurface science into products.

The competition is aimed at the private sector and academia who can harness electromagnetic hardware. DASA are particularly interested in novel metasurfaces and manufacturing technologies to integrate them in to platforms.
