UK sponsored competition engages society in military logistics

By Jéssica Leite dos Santos |

The UK Ministry of Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) launched a competition aimed at academia and industry for the presentation of innovative projects in the field of military logistics. The Right on Time: Automating Military Logistics initiative aims at fostering innovative ideas regarding autonomy and potential automation of the logistics chain. The development of such technologies could inform the future needs of the military user in all domains (Maritime, Terrestrial and Aerial). A total of £800,000 is available for winning bids.

Impacts on Defense and Security: Initiatives like this point to a movement rapprochement of the Defense sector with other sectors of society in the search to integrate them in planning processes and implementation of strategic actions. This integration allows decision-makers from the Armed Forces and Ministries to have access to broader visions of either possible challenges and future problems or contemporary problems.
