DASA competition - Telexistence - closes midday 19th November


28th September 2020

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has launched a new competition: Telexistence. £500K is available to fund multiple proposals.

We expect individual proposals to be less than £100K. Projects must be completed by 31 May 2021. There are three Challenge areas:

• Challenge 1: Telepresence
• Challenge 2: Haptics
• Challenge 3: Robotics

This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition, run on behalf of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), aims to develop and demonstrate the components of a telexistence solution to the defence and security community. There is the potential for this competition (Phase 1) to be followed by a second competition (Phase 2) which will invite proposals to tailor their telexistence systems to meet a defence and security use case.
