The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has launched an innovation competition to develop new capabilities for police and law enforcement agencies to stop armed or violent offenders with the minimal necessary force from distance.
Advancing Less Lethal Weapons seeks proposals for innovative technologies from industry and academia that can temporarily stop a violent or armed subject to prevent the escalation of conflict or destruction of property.
An initial £500,000 funding is available for innovators with up to £500,000 additional funding for a later phase.
The competition closes at midday on Thursday 15 October 2020.
