The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is to hold an event in London on 28 November 2017 to provide information on the finding explosives hidden in electrical items themed competition.

Suppliers attending the event will be able to hear presentations about the finding explosives hidden in electrical items themed competition, which seeks to make a real difference in aviation security through innovative science and technology.

The Accelerator competition is looking for proposals for technologies to improve our ability to prevent explosives hidden within electrical items in hand luggage from being taken on board an aircraft.

DASA are seeking new solutions to provide an effective, efficient and passenger-friendly screening system that negates the need to impose bans on electrical items or additional laborious screening measures.

The challenges are to enhance the detection of threats hidden in electrical items at:

Challenge 1: central search

Challenge 2: at a final departure screening point, where there are significant constraints on size, weight, power and portability

The challenges are not restricted to finding solutions to detect concealed explosive devices/components. The Accelerator are also keen to see solutions to identify electrical items that may have been tampered with, or which appear to be out of the ordinary. This will allow a greater focus on the more resource intensive detection techniques on a smaller number of items.

The competition is part of the wider Department for Transport and Home Office Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme that will see £25.5 million invested over a 5-year period (2016-2021) to promote innovation and deliver a step change in aviation security.
