DASA launch search for future of Naval operating environment

DASA, Dstl, and the Royal Navy have launched a multi-million pound funding competition to search for the future Naval operating environment.

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is launching ‘Intelligent Ship – The Next Generation’ – a multi-million pound competition for the future Naval operating environment.

The 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.

£1m is available to fund multiple innovative proposals that form phase 1, with an additional £3 million potentially available to fund follow-on phases. Further details are available in the competition document.

The competition closes on 23 July 2019 at midday.
