Defence and Security Accelerator Call

The Open Call welcomes a wide range of innovative ideas to solve problems faced by our defence and security customers. Whilst the Open Call accepts a full range of ideas and innovations, DASA is keen to share details from stakeholders across Government on more specific areas of interest.

The webpage provides information on particular and enduring innovation focus areas, which are specific topics where our customers would be keen to see innovative solutions channelled via the Open Call. Proposals which address these areas of interest can be submitted into either of the Open Call.

This site will be changed as new innovation focus areas are added, or old ones deleted or amended, in response to the evolving needs of our defence and security stakeholders. It is therefore recommended that you set up an alert for this page so you are aware of when such changes are made.

Each innovation focus area has a unique identifier to help us ensure that your innovation is seen by the appropriate parts of Government. Therefore, if you submit a proposal in response to one of these focus areas you should add the identifier to the beginning of your proposal title. For example: IFA001 – A Novel Idea for Finding Suspicious Items on Airline Passengers.

COVID-19: Rapid Sanitising Technology

Unique Identifier IFA019

Ambulances must be thoroughly cleaned once a patient with suspected COVID-19 has been transported. These cleaning times can take up to 45 minutes and have to be undertaken at cleaning centres which can be some distance away. This puts a strain on an already busy and pressurised service as the vehicles cannot be used until cleaning is completed.

We are looking to identify, develop and demonstrate rapid sanitising technologies. All projects will be required to undergo practical assessment at Dstl Porton Down and a live demonstration on an ambulance, provided by the Welsh Ambulance Service.

Innovations must be suitable for rapid deployment to clean public sector vehicles following the transport of patients with the COVID-19 virus. Ideally systems will have wider applicability than just ambulances, which might include buses, trains, and other blue light services or even in hospital wards / room
