Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, and to ensure the safety of all attendees, the launch event will now take place online on Wednesday 29th April 2020. We are still finalising the details of how this will happen and will confirm details as soon as we can.

This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is run on behalf of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).

This call is looking to generate novel technologies and techniques that can rapidly be developed to deliver life-saving protection against IEDs, while being adaptable to evolving technologies and able to operate in an increasingly congested electromagnetic spectrum.

The total funding for Phase 1 is expected to be at least £1.5m.

This DASA competition is currently planned to open in April 2020 when the full competition document will be released on the DASA website.

DASA will be holding a launch event online for this competition on Wednesday 29th April 2020, where there will be the opportunity to hear a presentation on the Counter IED Programme and the competition.

You can register for the event on Eventbrite.

There will also be pre-bookable one to one dial ins for this competition which will take place on Tuesday 5th May 2020, where you will be able to discuss the Invisible Shield competition with technical members of the competition team. Further details will be released soon.
