Dstl’s webinars are designed to help small and medium-sized enterprises work with the defence sector. They are free to attend and you do not need to have experience working with Dstl or in defence.

Over the next 5 years Dstl will be investing over £100m in the best and most promising new science and technologies, accelerating the development of novel and resilient defence communications, networks and architectures, in order to meet the challenges of future military operations.

Defence is already facing the challenges of increased demand for data and information, with more sensors collecting more data, and increased speed of data analysis and decision making as a result of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. At the same time there is an increasing demand for communication resources due to the growth in novel battlefield assets, such as remote and autonomous systems, all requiring access to the electromagnetic spectrum for communications, command and control.

We will be investing in potential solutions to these challenges, from the novel use of the electromagnetic spectrum, alternative communications mechanisms, adaptive and autonomous networks, and novel data routing algorithms, to improve the availability of secure information to military systems and decision makers at the time and place of need.

We are looking to develop a diverse community of suppliers, including universities and academics, non-traditional defence suppliers, as well as the established defence primes, in order to stimulate innovation and to accelerate potential solutions through to concept demonstration.

If you have something to offer and would like to find how to get involved, then please join us. We would love to take you with us on this exciting journey.
