Description

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) will be holding a showcase event as part of the ‘Metasurfaces for Defence and Security’ competition. The event is an opportunity for the suppliers funded at phase 1 to showcase their outputs and to launch phase 2 of the competition.

Why attend?

  • Learn more about the successful bidders of the competition
  • Identify new project opportunities/collaborations
  • Gain information on Phase 2 of the competition
  • Understand potential exploitation routes within the competition

Who should attend?

  • Public organisations with a possible application for the demonstrated technology
  • Experts within the field of Metasurfaces
  • Those interested in bidding for funding

Agenda

The agenda will include:

  • Exhibition of successful Phase 1 suppliers
  • Networking opportunities
  • Update from the metasurfaces programme
  • How to bid into DASA
  • Phase 2 launch

Metasurfaces for Defence and Security

This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) challenge led a competition seeking proposals for innovative technologies that translate recent breakthroughs in metasurface science into practical demonstrative products that are TRL level 3 and above.

This will enable the Ministry of Defence to harness a revolution in electromagnetic hardware. DASA was interested in both novel metasurfaces and the manufacturing technologies to integrate them into platforms. DASA wishes to better understand the benefits that current and future metasurface technologies can bring to front-line capabilities, in applications across the electromagnetic spectrum (from radio frequencies to the ultraviolet).

Challenges we are hoping to address:

  • enabling of new capabilities through use of novel technology
  • maximised capabilities within mass constraints (for example, through multi-functionality, miniaturisation or being conformal)
  • improved interoperability within and across platforms
  • compatible pan-, multi- and hyperspectral system operation
  • setting the path towards long-term cost reduction through technology advances and eased and modular integration

Registration

  • Registration closes on 4 September at 10:00
  • Please notify us as soon as possible if you can no longer attend the event so that we can offer your place to someone else
  • Please note there will also be supplier presentations taking place however they will only be open to government attendees
