UK MOD calls for collaboration on new counter-IED technologies

13 August 2012

Experts at the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) are calling for industry and academia to contact them with any innovative ideas to develop new sensing technologies for the detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

The sensing challenges will focus on concealed IEDs, either worn by a person or hidden in a vehicle, buried by or in the roadside or hidden in a wall, box, bag or other container

If chosen, applicants to take part in a series of IED detection demonstration days between 3 September 2012 and 31 January 2013. The final deadline for submission is 31 October 2012.

The opportunity will allow companies to demonstrate a concept, rather than collect large quantities of data, and if suitable new technologies or concepts are identified, development funding may be available.

DSTL is interested in concepts at early stages of development through to those at the prototype stage.
