“3.5 Clarification of what we don’t want
For this competition we are not interested in proposals that:

  • constitute consultancy, paper-based studies or literature reviews which just summarise the existing literature without any view of future innovation
  • are an identical re-submission of a previous bid to DASA or MOD without modification
  • offer demonstrations of off-the-shelf products requiring no experimental development (unless applied in a novel way to the challenge)
  • offer no real long-term prospect of integration into defence and security capabilities
  • offer no real prospect of out-performing existing technological solutions
  • comprise platform solutions only, rather than EW solutions and an associated platform”

Ah the sound of a myriad OJARs crumbling into dust while £Millions are saved.
 
I propose Nick Hine, armed with a pair of binos and a heliograph (sorry, reflective light emitting data link), borne aloft by a large kite with a very long string tied to the deck, thus giving over the horizon visibility and advanced situational awareness.

Where do I claim my prize again?

Fails Section 2.3
Platform solutions must not be constrained by geographical and/or environmental factors, such as the need to operate in high wind conditions, sea state, latitudes, or fat kunts with Bino's

Please try harder next time.
