The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has up to £3 million to invest in innovative new technologies, processes and ways of operating that improve the ability of defence staff to analyse and exploit data in decision-making.
A further £3 million could be invested to develop the best ideas in a second phase of the competition.
The MOD is seeking solutions in 3 challenge areas:
rapid and automated integration of new sensors
freeing up personnel by the innovative use of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence for military advantage
effective use of operator cognitive capacity, particularly by human-machine teaming
This funding competition is part of SBRI (the Small Business Research Initiative). A first phase seeks initial ideas. Winners of phase 1 funding will compete in a second phase to develop the idea further.
