The Ministry of Defence’s Centre for Defence Enterprise, in collaboration with the Security Secret Intelligence Services, will shortly be inviting proposals for its security for the internet of things themed competition. The call opens on 10 September 2015 when the full competition details will be published.
This competition seeks research projects that identify innovative technologies or approaches in order to meet the challenges created by the internet of things, such as multiple connected sensors that are capable of communicating with their environment. Proposals should address the following areas of interest:
• Collating and visualising data on subjects of interest from a diverse, sensor-rich, loosely connected environment that operates across different protocols and standards;
• Identifying how sure a hypothesis is that two events, users or devices are connected, based on the data gathered.
Each project may receive between £60,000 and £90,000 over three months in phase 1, followed by a split of £1m funding available for phase 2 projects, which will be considered on a per-project basis.
The competition will be briefed at the CDE Innovation Network Event on the 1st October 2015, with the closing date for this call being the 29th October 2015 at 5pm.
