Funding for innovative uses of data for defence staff

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.
