UK Defence Procurement Minister Harriett Baldwin has launched a Defence and Security Accelerator competition in order to develop new data analysis technologies.
The £3m competition calls for academics and businesses to create innovative solutions to overcome national security challenges.
The accelerator was announced as part of the UK's Defence Innovation Initiative.
"Our commitment to collaboration will deliver a safer and more prosperous Britain.”
Baldwin said: “The Defence Innovation Initiative and £800m Defence Innovation Fund aim to encourage imagination, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship, in pursuit of maintaining a military advantage in the future.
“This innovation challenge calls for innovators to develop new technologies to improve the UK’s ability to analyse and exploit data in order to inform decision-making.
“With a rising defence budget, and a £178bn equipment plan, our commitment to collaboration will deliver a safer and more prosperous Britain.”
The use of new technologies such as sensors and artificial intelligence is expected to give military commanders better situational awareness of the battlefield, allowing them to act faster and more effectively.
Projects initiated as part of the competition are expected to last up to six months, and initial results need to be delivered by next November.
The new capabilities will be added to the accelerator over the coming year.
