The DASA Don't Blow It! competition has - subject to funding and contract - a total of up to £1.5 million funding for a second phase, following a successful Phase 1.

DASA is looking for innovations (at technology readiness level (TRL) 3 upwards) to develop full-scale prototypes ready for testing on agent simulants and munition surrogates. Please note, it is not compulsory to have been involved in Phase 1 to apply. Funding is due to be approved before the competition closes.

The competition is jointly funded by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the US Department of Defense (DoD) and will operate under an existing memorandum of understanding between both nations.

The competition closes at 17:00 GMT (12:00 EST) on Monday 6th January 2020.
