CDE Themed Competition: Many Drones Make Light Work

This Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) themed competition seeks to demonstrate and evaluate the benefit that Unmanned Air System (UAS) swarms could bring to defence.

Through this CDE themed competition, they're seeking new and emerging technologies, systems and techniques to enable militarily useful swarming UAS. They want this competition to demonstrate how UK industry (particularly small and medium enterprises (SMEs) working with academia and primes where appropriate) working in partnership with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) could rapidly deliver new military capability by exploiting emerging and innovative technologies. As well as developing component technologies, they also want to go on to demonstrate integrated system solutions by using components from a number of suppliers.


Your proposal must be received by CDE by 5pm on Thursday 3 November 2016. Your proposal must be submitted to CDE online.
