The UK Ministry of Defence, through its Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA), in partnership with the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) has launched Stream 1 of Windfarm Mitigation for UK Air Defence: Phase 3. This competition builds upon Phases 1 & 2 and seeks to advance innovative technologies to enable the long-term co-existence of offshore windfarms and Air Defence radar. Stream 2 is expected to launch at a later date – see Competition Document for more details.
The competition is funded by the DESNZ Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) and is undertaken in partnership with the Royal Air Force (RAF), the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), and DASA.
This Competition is funded via a DESNZ grant
This Phase 3 competition run by DASA on behalf of DESNZ, highlights a key DASA priority to support acceleration of funded proposals towards commercialisation. This competition moves away from the standard DASA process, instead, innovators will compete for a DESNZ grant which will seek match funding from the applicants. As a result, innovators will be asked to consider their business case and provide detailed business information, alongside the standard DASA submission. Our team of Innovation Partners will be available to discuss this with Innovators, and events will be run to ensure innovators are in the best position to proceed. Other DASA competitions will continue to follow the regular DASA submission process.
Funding, key dates and supporting events
Up to £14.15 million funding is available for this Themed Competition.
Where do I submit my proposal?
Via the DASA Online Submission Service for which you will require an account.
Only proposals submitted through the DASA Online Submission Service will be accepted.
The deadline to submit a proposal is midday 20 April 2023 (BST).
