Defence related innovation challenges
THE Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is highlighting this Defence related Innovation challenge call from London Tech Bridge for the following challenges:
- High Bandwidth Long Range Underwater Cooperative Network - True practical acoustic or other, high bandwidth underwater network to meet the needs of exploiting UUVs in support of naval operations. The solution would allow heterogeneous communication (UUV platform to platform and platform to C2 node) for collaborative mission management, mission monitoring and data transfer to decision maker.
- Sense and Avoid of underwater obstacles for UXV (UUV and USV)Detect, classify, and automatically defeat/avoid static underwater obstacles, such as nets, and uncharted wrecks, and dynamic surface and near surface obstacles, such as props, keels, and containers, which pose mission fail threats to UUV and USV operations.
The call involves £50K Awards, 6 month projects & successful teams may receive invitation to demonstrate @ the NATO REPMUS Exercise in September.
