Helping the Military Shrink Its Cyber Attack Surface

With the defence sector full of legacy systems vulnerable to cyber attacks, the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is launching a new Innovation Focus Area (IFA) called Reducing the Cyber Attack Surface, which aims to develop technologies that reduce the opportunity for cyber attacks on Ministry of Defence (MOD) systems and platforms.

Funded projects will fall in Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) 4-7. DASA are looking for technologies that reduce the opportunity for cyber attack, raise the barrier for cyber attack, and / or are novel and applicable across a whole “class” of attack surface rather than solutions tailored to a specific threat.

DASA expects to fund proposals within Technical Readiness Level 4 – 7 (TRLs) up to £300K for a 9 month contract.

Deadline: 5th January 2022
