DASA extends biosensing competition deadline

1st June 2020 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UK Defence and Science Accelerator (DASA) has extended its deadline for submissions to a biosensing competition which seeks to find innovative new proposals for technology which will enhance the British Army’s ability to detect biological agents.

Proposals for Phase 2 of the competition will be accepted by organisations which did not participate in the first phase but their ideas must be at least Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3.

Submissions for Phase 2 of the competition were originally to be completed by 1 June; however, this has now been extended until 15 June at midday BST. Approximately £700,000 ($861,633) has been allocated by DASA to support this stage of the competition. No official explanation for the extension was given but it is likely that DASA has decided to give extra time to companies which may have experienced disruption as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
