The Defence and Security Accelerator is to hold a collaboration day on Thursday 7 June 2018 to showcase projects successfully funded by the Future Aviation Security Solutions programme and to identify opportunities for future collaboration with other organisations.

This event will enable the winning suppliers from the competition to showcase their research proposals to end users, government and other organisations.

It is envisaged the event will lead to future collaboration between organisations to enable these innovative ideas to be developed and integrated into working products.

In March 2017, the UK introduced a ban on large electronic devices in the cabin of UK-bound aircraft from certain airports in the Middle East and North Africa. Restrictions like these are of great concern to the aviation industry, and equally to passengers. Stopping passengers from travelling with electrical items can have a huge impact on personal and business activity.

The competition is seeking to help the UK Government, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the aviation industry to improve aviation security processes, by staying ahead of evolving threats whilst reducing delays at checkpoint screening. The suppliers, which have now been funded as part of the competition process, could provide an alternative to imposing bans on electrical items or implementing additional laborious screening measures.

If you would like to register your expression of interest to attend, please reply to by Thursday 24 May 2018 at 1pm, with the subject title of ‘FASS Collaboration day 7 June 2018’ stating the name of attendee; organisation; and why you would like to attend.

Successful applicants will then be sent a link to register for attendance.

If the event is oversubscribed, numbers attending from a single organisation will be limited. Joining instructions for the event, including the venue details and agenda will be distributed on Thursday 31 May 2018.
