The Centre for Defence Enterprise has awarded contracts to the best ideas from its first competitions with the UK Defence Solutions Centre.
In 2015, the Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) (part of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) ran a series of SBRI themed competitions against which industry and academia submitted their innovative ideas. The first of these competitions were on the subjects of agile and immersive training and persistent surveillance.
In persistent surveillance, phase-2 contracts worth a total of £1.35 million have been awarded to SMEs Glyndwr Innovations Ltd and Amethyst Research Ltd, along with the University of Birmingham, and large defence company QinetiQ.
