Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS)
Call for Applications: Corrosion Detection in Ships Sandbox
Test your best solutions to find corrosion trouble spots for the Royal Canadian Navy. The Corrosion Detection in Ships Sandbox, delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is now accepting applications. The Sandbox will take place at the Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE) facility in Halifax, Nova Scotia in the Spring of 2021.
Participants will be given the opportunity to showcase their products in realistic simulations, with successful demonstrations resulting in access to an actual vessel to demonstrate their solution in a real world environment. Apply now to test your technologies at one of the leading collaborative facilities for applied innovation in the ocean sector. The deadline to apply is December 15, 2020.
Supporting Troops, Advancing Logistics: Competitive Projects Fourth Call Now Open
Whether it be a pizza at home or food rations for troops in a hostile area, autonomous vehicles are the future of delivery. Use your robotic expertise to get needed supplies to troops in forward areas. Along with supply logistics, modular armour designs are needed that will help adapt vehicles to threats in the here and now, in whatever environment they roll through.
Improving decision making by connecting various data sources as well as giving troops eagle eyes to detect threats will become key components of modern defence systems. And ships present their own unique challenges in ensuring cyber security. Finally, soldiers transitioning back to civilian life from combat presents its own set of unique challenges. See our new call for proposals to explore how you can help.
The Deadline to apply is December 10th, 2020
