DASA have launched the Defence Technology Exploitation programme, a £16 million programme to boost SME defence innovation.

With the innovation of SMEs, the resources of big suppliers and initial funding from government, DTEP is designed to bring the key components together to allow pioneering projects to flourish.

The aim is to keep the UK at the forefront of defence technology, improving the capabilities available to our armed forces, and providing some of these to the global market.

Applications to DTEP can be made by UK-based SMEs looking to form a collaboration with a UK-based higher-tier supplier aimed at taking their innovations to market.
