Competition: Rapid Detection of Toxic Gases

Brown glass bottle with poison symbol - skull and crossbones

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) has launched 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. The competition is seeking new technological solutions to combat this health, safety, and security challenge.

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.
