DASA is inviting proposals for innovative methods for halting a tank as part of a new event.

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is hosting a launch event for ‘Stopping it in its Tracks’ – Phase 2. This will take place in London, on the 16 May 2019. They are appealing for existing innovations that can be adapted and used to stop a tracked vehicle including a tank.

DASA has requested for novel approaches to stop or impede tanks and other heavy armoured vehicles while preventing or minimising collateral damage. Approaches do not need to focus on physical barriers but can target mobility, vision, or even the engine.

Dr Adam Staines at DASA said: “We are looking to harness the latest thinking and any advances in engineering, design, materials science, computing and non-kinetic weapons. Whilst the primary focus is defence, we are also interested in technologies that have wider security applications, such as preventing vehicle-related terrorist attacks.”

DASA has already facilitated a range of innovators to develop such technologies on behalf of the Army in a proof-of-concept Phase 1. Four suppliers were funded with technologies ranging from targeting the engine and sensors to deploying wired mesh technology to inhibit the tracks.

Total funding of up to £3 million is available for Phase 2 of this competition from which DASA expects to offer to fund around 5-6 projects. Suppliers do not have to have been in Phase 1 of the competition to take part, and additional funding may be available for future phases of this competition.

To attend the event please register via Eventbrite.
