DASA – Contemporary Deception for the British Army


DASA is seeking proposals for new deception technologies that could be exploited by the British Army to gain operational advantage and to aid the survivability of deployed UK Land Forces.

DASA expects to distribute up to £900,000 across 6 – 8 projects, with a maximum project duration of 5 months.

Projects are expected to deliver solutions at TRL 3 or 4 – no higher than TRL 5.

Challenge 1Show the False  – representations of generalist and specialist Land capabilities (personnel, military activities, in-service platforms, systems and hubs) that are ideally remotely or autonomously delivered (ideally recoverable and deniable) and which deceive visual, electro-optic/infra-red (short, medium and long-wave) and acoustic sensors at a range of 500m by day or 200m at night, using EOIR sensors in average conditions, including from aerial platforms.

Challenge 2 – Hide the Real – enhance the survivability of personnel and materiel by reducing the likelihood of being Identified, Acquired and Engaged in support of the survivability onion concept.   eg obscure the ability to find static and moving platforms and systems, and command and logistics hubs, ideally in more than one area of the electromagnetic spectrum (visual, infrared, acoustic and radar bands).

A Q&A webinar will be held 7 June 2024. Register here.

Proposals are due 9 July 2024.
