Beyond Line of Sight Communications (IFA036)
This IFA is being run on behalf of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) Communication and Networks programme, and is seeking Generation-After-Next (GAN) proposals, which explore and develop new / novel beyond line of sight (BLOS) communication options.
This IFA expects proposals to deliver a proof of concept at around Technical Readiness Level(TRL) 3/4 by the end of the project. DASA expects to fund proposals around £100K, (although this is not a hard limit) which provides a proof of concept within a maximum contract duration of 2 years.
Making Science Fiction a Reality: Future Directed Energy Weapons (IFA035)

We are interested in novel ideas to enhance the performance and/or reduce the size, mass and volume of the system and sub system areas associated with laser and RF Directed Energy Weapons. Full details are provided on our website.
For this IFA, DASA are seeking ideas between TRL 2-6, with suggested project values of between £50k-£200k, and a maximum project duration of 12 months.
