Posted 3 January 2019 · Add Comment

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) and the Department for Transport (DfT) Future of Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme team are hosting a showcase event in London on 17 January 2019, at a significant milestone for this collaborative programme set up by DfT and Home Office.

Eight projects received Future of Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) Phase 2 funding worth £1.8 million earlier this year to develop innovative solutions around aviation security. This was to enhance the detection of a wide range of explosives, weapons and other threat materials that could be hidden and taken on board an aircraft, whilst minimising the inconvenience of those undergoing and conducting screening.

At the showcase event, suppliers from both industry and academia will demonstrate their cutting-edge technologies to aviation and wider security stakeholders who will have the unique opportunity of learning more about and influencing these innovations directly with the developers. There will be a chance to see first-hand the technologies which support the screening of people and their footwear and hand luggage, as well as the screening of aviation cargo and hold luggage.

Attendees will be invited to network and consider where partnering would support their value proposition within the aviation, screening and detection sectors. There will be an opportunity to meet Government officials who are interested in taking forward innovation for both the aviation and wider security sectors as well as potential industry end-users.

The successful eight projects were initially chosen from 19 that received a combined £1.35 million as part of the competition’s phase 1 proof of concept funding. The FASS programme is enabled by the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) with investment provided by the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Home Office through a joint initiative.

This showcase event is free-to-attend.
