Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA)
Innovation for a Safer Future
What we do
DASA finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK defence and security quickly and effectively and supports UK prosperity.
We help small and medium-sized enterprises to reach the marketplace quicker, and help larger companies to enhance their offerings. We unlock innovation potential by offering a unique set of benefits to innovators:
- We do not take any of the Innovators’ Intellectual Property or equity
- We usually provide 100% funding
- We don’t expect matched funding
- We can provide access to unparalleled expert government advice
Applying for funding

- Open Call for Innovation – Any innovation relevant to defence and innovation focus areas for security.
- Themed Calls – Innovation that meets the needs of specific government areas of interest.
