UK Defence Solutions Centre - Area Denial Challenge
The next DSC challenge for industry focuses on ensuring the UK's freedom of action within the operational area.
The UK's Defence Solutions Centre (DSC) regularly sets questions and challenges to industry. These are challenges that aim to address the issues and problems that face the UK's defence and security community. The next challenge is being run in conjunction with the MOD's Capability Strategy Team sitting within Finance & Military Capability team (FinMilCap).
The Capability Strategy team plays a critical part in generating and delivering a balanced and affordable Defence capability programme, worth some £178Bn over the next 10 years. The Capability Strategy team has established the Force Exploration programme to support MOD in designing the future structure of the Armed Forces ahead of the next Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) in 2020.
Through this work DSC and FinMilCap aim to engage industry with novel and innovative solutions in order to create a UK capability that may also hold export potential. The details of the next DSC challenge can be found below and in the documents at the bottom of the webpage.
