This Defence and Security Accelerator (Accelerator) themed competition seeks to make a real difference in aviation security through innovative science and technology. The competition is looking for proposals to improve our ability to prevent explosives hidden within electrical items in passenger baggage from being taken on board an aircraft.

This Accelerator competition is part of the wider Department for Transport and Home Office Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme. This programme will invest £25.5 million over a 5 year period (2016-2021) to promote innovation and deliver a step change in aviation security.
