Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS)
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 8th, 2020
Corrosion Detection in Ships Sandbox Postponed
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, IDEaS was forced to postpone the Corrosion Detection in Ships Sandbox until Spring 2021. To ensure that opportunity is available equally and transparently to all, we will reissue the Call for Applications for this Sandbox, likely in in the fall of 2020. This will be open for all Innovators to respond, whether returning or new. Please note that aside from minor amendments such as the new dates and preferred weeks to attend, the application form, criteria, and selection method will remain unchanged.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to your continued interest in participating when the Call for Applications is reissued. Look for the call on our website and via our distribution list email.
