The Defence and Security Accelerator is holding further 1-to-1 teleconference sessions as part of the Advanced Vision for 2020 and Beyond competition, on 17 October 2019, bookable through Eventbrite. This is an opportunity to ask questions about the competition to the technical team and DASA.

This competition aims to develop and demonstrate a number of novel technologies or applications in the area of Electro-Optic and Infrared (EOIR) sensors to address the future needs of defence and security for highly capable and affordable sensors for surveillance, target acquisition and threat detection.

We are looking for innovative solutions that address the following challenge areas:

  • Novel optics and materials
  • Novel sensors
  • Embedded/edge processing applied to EOIR sensing

Full details of all challenges we are seeking to address are included in the competition document.

At least £1.25 million is available to fund multiple proposals in this phase, and it is anticipated that there will be a further £1.25 million available to fund Phase 2.

The competition is open for applications until 13 December 2019.
