Details

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is launching Phase 2 of Take Cover! This competition seeks proposals to access recent innovations in materials science and/or design to provide advanced protection solutions for small groups of front-line troops from ballistic and blast threats.

Within defence and security, protection of personnel is a priority area and deployment of rapid protection solutions for dismounted (on-foot) troops on the front-line is of high importance.

We are interested in integrating proof-of-concept technologies into a single or multiple protection system during this and subsequent competition phases.

Phase 2 has up to £550k available to fund multiple proposals. Additional funding is anticipated to be available for a future phase of this competition.

This competition closes on Tuesday 29 October 2019 at midday (GMT).

Queries should be sent to accelerator@dstl.gov.uk.
