    First, Welcome to our new members!

    Here are some updates that I hope you will find useful:

    Team Defence Information (TDI)  Defence Digital Roadmap: the 7 strands of work are progressing well with around 100 participants from all sectors (not just defence) contributing. The work is still in its first phase with more to follow, including the production of demonstrators. This first phase was due to complete about now but it is going so strongly that it has been extended to ensure that all participants have chance to contribute fully and effectively. Contact TDI secretariat@teamdefence.info or +44 (0)1454 410 550 for more information

    The Defence and Security Accelerator program (DASA): is running its Open Call with offers typically in the range of £50K – £100K to develop ideas that are useful to them. Detection of drugs is one area of interest. The prevention of cyber attacks is another area of Interest with separate funding to £300K for technical demonstrators. View the DASA website, contact DASA by email or call 01980 950000 option 3 for more information. If you are a UK SME you may wish to visit their site to checkout their loan scheme for £250K to £1.6M.

    Dstl (Defence Science & Technology Laboratory): are organising a series of webinars to introduce themselves to people and organisations not already working with them. Despite their name, not all of their interests are defence related and artificial intelligence (AI) is an example.

    I hope this is useful and wish you success if you choose to apply for any of these offers. The defence budget is increasing and good ideas are always welcomed. So, although not guaranteed, success is probable (but you have to try!).

    DSEI Excel London 14-17th sept 2021: If you are missing human contact and feel the need to talk to real people and see real equipment then this Defence and Security International Exhibition is a good option for you! It is an annual event that attracts exhibitors and visitors from around the world that has been affected by Covid so it will be interesting to see how well it is attended this year. All  of the big suppliers and many smaller organisations exhibit, there are presentation schemes and recruitment is always on the agenda! For more information and registration click here.

    I hope to meet you at one of the events.

    Very best regards, Dave
