The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) delivers high-impact science and technology (S&T) for the UK’s defence, security and prosperity. Dstl will explain how small and medium-sized enterprises and businesses can work with defence to help protect the UK’s armed forces.
DASA, the Defence and Security Accelerator, finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK defence and security quickly and effectively, and supports UK prosperity.
An introduction to Dstl and DASA will be presented on their stand between 1pm and 2pm each day. One-to-one appointments are available throughout the day for more detailed discussion.
