The UK’s Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has awarded Digital Concepts Engineering Ltd (DCE) a contract to develop a semi-autonomous reconnaissance and survey system that can enable British Army troops to swiftly and safely traverse water obstacles such as rivers and `wet gaps’ such as streams and bogs.
Digital Concepts Engineering Ltd (DCE) has won a contract in the UK government’s Defence and Security Accelerator’s (DASA) Map the Gap competition to develop a semi-autonomous reconnaissance and survey system that will help troops safely and stealthily advance into enemy territory over water.
The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has awarded contracts worth a total £1.3m to develop semi-autonomous reconnaissance and survey systems to help troops safely and stealthily advance into enemy territory across water obstacles such as rivers.
From Army Warfighting experiments to Map the Gap, Digital Concepts Engineering has become a key player in the unmanned systems space. DCE spoke to Harry Lye about its work for the British Armed Forces.
Digital Concepts Engineering (DCE) has used its experience in the military, agricultural and nuclear industries to repurpose its tech with the aim of responding to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, and the result is self-driving hospital beds designed to safeguard medical staff, and social distancing sensors for unmanned vehicles.
