This Week's Highlight - Defence Innovation Research Funding Opportunity

The Department of Defence, through its Science and Technology Group (DST) has issued a call for proposals seeking Adaptive Camouflage Solutions for Uninhabited Aerial systems. This activity is being undertaken as part of the Small Business Innovation Research for Defence program (SBIRD) which aims to provide opportunities for Small to Medium Enterprises to undertake research projects with potential Defence application.

The topic for this round seeks novel solutions that would reduce the vulnerability of remotely piloted fixed winged aircraft by either or both of the following characteristics:
1. adapt to changing conditions to reduce the visual detectability against a sky background; and/or
2. reduce/change the acoustic signature of these small aircrafts to make them less acoustically detectable in different environmental conditions.

Australian Universities, Australian and New Zealand industry and Australian Publicly Funded Research Agencies are eligible to apply. Proposals will be required to describe projects that demonstrate a proposed idea/technology that has real viability to function, while scoped around what is achievable within a maximum budget of $100,000.00 in a timeframe of between 6 – 9 months.

This represents the first stage of the process which if successful leads onto Stage 2 which provides funding to develop the idea to ‘prototype’ stage. Applications for Stage 1 close 9 July 2018 with a planned evaluation period of 7 weeks.
