About Defence and Security Accelerator- Novel Amphibious Craft Collaboration Day

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) are hosting a collaboration event in advance of a new DASA Themed Competition launch, Novel Amphibious Craft. This competition will launch in October 2022, and will fund promising technologies to help develop a Commando Insertion Craft (CIC) fit to combat the threats of the 21st Century.

To create a platform that can transport personnel and light vehicles across great distances, in challenging conditions, whilst evading detection from coastal sensors is a significant challenge. It demands collaboration between experts in many disciplines, including those outside the defence sector.

This event looks to accelerate partnerships, by bringing together prospective innovators across industry. There will also be an opportunity to connect with subject matter experts from the competition team.

Why should you attend?

Attending the collaboration event will allow you to:

  • understand the requirements of front line operators
  • form new collaborative relationships with innovators that have complimentary knowledge
  • meet the experts from DASA and the Royal Marines Commando Force

Who should attend?

There are multiple complex engineering requirements for this competition and we expect that a proportion of the proposals will be collaborative efforts between multiple suppliers. This event targets innovators interested in networking and/or establishing collaborations before submitting a proposal to the competition.
