Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are explosive devices fabricated in an improvised manner, but with varying degrees of professionalism.
The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is seeking innovative ideas to rapidly accelerate and enhance the electronic capabilities for countering IEDs and deliver life-saving protection. In particular, DASA is looking for Radio Frequency (RF) based methods or technologies that can provide an increased understanding of the RF spectrum to detect and disrupt the functionality of IEDs.
The current call for applications relates to phase 1 of a potential £3m multi-phase competition. DASA is looking for innovative solutions to be developed to TRLs 3-4 through phase 1 projects of 9 months in length. The budget for phase 1 is £1.5m. Additional funding may become available for future phases to further develop technologies to higher TRLs.
