The Centre for Defence Enterprise has two themed competitions closing soon:
Security for the Internet of Things
The internet of things, as a network of multiple connected sensors, capable of communicating with their environment, creates security challenges. This competition is looking for research proposals to identify innovative technologies or approaches to meet these challenges.
Up to £1 million is available for phase 1 of this competition. We expect to fund a number of projects around £60,000 to £90,000 for a duration of around 3 months.
Up to £1 million will be made available for phase 2. Funding will be considered on a per-project basis.
This competition closes on Thursday 29 October 2015 at 5pm.

Autonomy and Big Data for Defence
This competition aims to address the challenges associated with the adoption of autonomy and big data in defence. We want proof-of-concept research proposals for innovative component technologies and techniques to acquire, process, visualise and analyse data that can be used to support decision making for both human and autonomous systems. Proposals can relate to any military environment, in the air, on land or at sea.
Proposals must be received by CDE by 5pm on Wednesday 11 November 2015.
