The Department for Transport and the Home Office are to invest up to £3 million for phase one of this Defence and Security Accelerator challenge competition, which is the second under the joint Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme.
FASS will invest £25.5 million over a five year period (2016-2021) to promote innovation and deliver a step change in aviation security.
This competition is now open and looking for proposals for technologies that can improve the ability to prevent hand luggage containing explosives hidden within electrical items from being taken on board an aircraft.
Full details can be found in the competition document.
The competition will be briefed at an Accelerator Innovation Network event on 28 November 2017.
Proposals must be received by the Accelerator by midday on 17 January 2018.
