Search for future Naval operating environment launched

Posted 12 June 2019 · Add Comment

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA), the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the Royal Navy, have launched a multimillion-pound funding competition to search for the future Naval operating environment.



The competition, called ‘Intelligent Ship – The Next Generation’, will be formally launched at an event in London on 19th June 2019

This competition is seeking proposals for novel and innovative projects that enable and facilitate the wider use of ‘intelligent systems’ within future warships, with the potential for wider use across defence.

The future sees elements of automation, autonomy, machine learning and artificial intelligence being more closely integrated and teamed with human decision makers.

The aim of this competition is to de-risk and evaluate technologies and approaches that could provide alternative, revolutionary future fleet concepts that can maintain or enhance UK military advantage within complex, cluttered, contested and congested operating and data environments.



The sum of £1 million is available to fund multiple innovative proposals that form phase 1, with an additional £3 million potentially available to fund follow-on phases.

The competition closes at midday on 23rd July 2019.

Further details are available in the competition document
