DASA is a cross-Government organisation that finds and funds exploitable defence and security innovations for a safer future. It welcomes ideas from all innovators while also providing support to those who have not previously worked with Government.

DASA upholds a critical link for new ideas to pull through quickly and effectively, with customers such as the MOD Chief Scientific Advisor (CSA), Defence Innovation Unit (DIU), the Home Office and Department for Transport working through DASA to deliver services and challenge competitions.

It has invested over £130 million in proposals that solve contemporary problem sets, and it has a wide remit across all of defence and security and is interested in all fields of science and technology, better ways of working, better services, or any innovation that will make defence and security more effective.
