Keeping people safe in busy spaces: £1.6 million Themed Competition launched

Do you have an innovation that could give an early warning to indicate unsafe levels of toxic gases in busy spaces?

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to launch a new Themed Competition called ‘Rapid Detection of Toxic Gases’. Run on behalf of the Home Office, this competition seeks new technologies that enhance the rapid detection of toxic gases to enable an early warning of unsafe levels of toxic gases in potentially busy spaces.

The rapid release of toxic gas in an enclosed or semi-enclosed environment can occur through accident, equipment malfunction or malicious intent. The impact can outpace existing safety procedures and potentially lead to adverse health effects for those in the vicinity. Therefore, we are seeking new technological solutions to combat this health, safety, and security challenge.

Key dates and funding

The total possible funding available for Phase 1 of this themed competition is £1.6 million, with a maximum limit of £200,000 per proposal.

The deadline to submit a proposal is midday (GMT) on Thursday 28 March 2024.

A Q&A webinar to discuss the competition requirements will take place on Wednesday 7 February 2024, while a series of 15 minute 1-2-1 webinar sessions will take place on Wednesday 14 February and Thursday 22 February 2024 and provide the opportunity to ask specific questions.
