DASA launches Advanced Vision for 2020 and Beyond competition

Posted 30 August 2019 · Add Comment

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has launched a competition seeking proposals in the area of Electro-Optics and Infrared, with an expected £2.5 million of funding available over two phases.



This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is seeking proposals to develop and demonstrate a number of novel technologies or applications in the area of Electro-Optics and Infrared (EOIR) to address the future need for highly capable and affordable sensors.

EOIR sensors are a key military capability used for surveillance, reconnaissance, target acquisition, threat warning, target detection and more.

The ever evolving nature of military operations means that we wish to invest in novel and resilient technologies that can function in contested/congested environments, that will extend the range, lower the cost and size, and expand the range of targets that can be addressed by EOIR sensors.

Total funding of £2.5 million is expected to be available over two phases to fund multiple projects in each phase. This competition is expected to open in August 2019.

In parallel to this competition, the Autonomy in Challenging Environments competition is seeking novel and innovative technologies to improve the capability of autonomous military systems in challenging environments for which sensor technology may be applicable. This competition will be holding a dial in event and further information can be found on Eventbrite .

If a proposal is submitted to both competitions, it should clearly outline any duplication of costs and works.
