DASA OPEN CALL FOR INNOVATION - IDENTIFYING CLIMATE RISKS TO DEFENCE CAPABILITIES USING SATELLITE ANALYSIS
We are pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded funding from the UK Ministry of Defence to address challenges in the Defence Rapid Impact area via the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) Open Call for Innovation competition.
The Remote Sensing Team at Helyx will combine its expertise in satellite imagery analysis with Defence operational hazards and climate modelling to provide a capability to predict, monitor, alert and assess climate risks as they emerge, both for military operations and training exercises.
By demonstrating this capability using specific scenarios of interest, climate risks to Defence Capabilities can be identified and managed, mitigating potentially large threats to operational effectiveness and safety. This supports the ambition, principles and methods outlined in the Ministry of Defence Climate Change and Sustainability Strategic Approach.
This work will involve stakeholder engagement, scenario development, setting up a satellite imagery service, determining operational thresholds and developing a proto-type demonstrator.
Sean Kennedy, Helyx MD, stated “We are delighted to secure this work with DASA. This innovative project enables us to provide key support to the MOD for this exciting and relevant initiative, and it gives us confidence in our commitment to grow our remote sensing and space capabilities.”
