DASA has launched a new Innovation Focus Area to find Advanced Materials innovations to support generation-after-next defence capabilities
The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to launch a new Innovation Focus Area (IFA), Advanced Materials for Defence. Advanced Materials is identified in the Defence Technology Framework as a critical technology family to drive innovation across defence. This IFA aims to harness these strengths in the UK landscape to provide innovative solutions in Advanced Materials to support generation-after-next defence capabilities.
DASA seeks innovations across two challenge areas:
This Innovation Focus Area will run for at least two funding cycles of the Open Call.
DASA expects to fund several proposals between £100K – £300K.
This IFA has 2 challenge areas.
This challenge is focused on materials and structures that can either sense changes in their environment, actuate a change under extreme environmental conditions, or a combination of both. This challenge is also concerned with the lifing and ageing of deployable or morphing structures.
For this challenge area, DASA seeks innovations that consider operating environments such as:
In addition to the operating environments listed above, this IFA is also interested in understanding emerging innovations in functional, animate and metamaterials under the FAME project. The FAME project focusses on the development of vital enabling materials knowledge, concepts and technologies for later exploitation into systems. FAME is a cross-cutting project that encompasses all operating environments.
This challenge is focused on materials and structures that can withstand extremes of temperatures.
For this challenge area, DASA seeks innovations that consider operating environments such as:
Do you have an Advanced Material innovation that will support generation-after-next defence capabilities?
