Event description

Description

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) ishosting an Collaboration event for the Don’t Blow It! competition. The purpose of the event is to encourage the forging of new relationships and collaboration with the possibility of creating innovative technology for Phase 2 of the competition and beyond. This event will bring together the current successful bidders of the competition and experts within the field of chemical and biological weapon disposal.

Who should attend?

  • Experts in accessing containers.
  • Experts in delaying the use of munitions.
  • Experts in destruction of munitions.
  • Companies with technologies that could offer potential solutions to this competition.
  • Public sector organisations interested in access, delay and destruction of munitions in the field.

Why attend?

Background to ‘Don’t Blow It!’

This competition is seeking proposals for novel and innovative technologies and approaches to access, disable and / or destroy chemical and biological munitions, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) containing chemical and biological agents, and containers of bulk chemical or biological agents, in challenging environments.

The competition addresses three challenge areas:

Challenge 1: Access – We are looking for novel and innovative technologies and approaches that can access munitions, IEDs and containers of bulk agent without relying on the original design features, such as filling ports, which may or may not be present. (A filling port is an access hole into a munition or container that enables it to be filled or drained)

Challenge 2: Disable – We are seeking novel and innovative technologies and approaches that prevent munitions, IEDs and bulk agent being used as intended. This could be by delaying their deployment to such a degree that it prevents their imminent use. Your proposed technology or approach must prevent these munitions, IEDs or bulk agent from being used for their intended purpose either temporarily or, if possible, permanently

Challenge 3: Destroy – We are looking for novel and innovative technologies and approaches that permanently and irreversibly destroy munitions, IEDs and bulk agent.
