The UK Defence Solutions Centre supported a Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) marketplace event held on the 27th April. The event was opened by Philip Dunne MP, the Minister for Defence Procurement, and UKDSC executive Paul Winstanley presented on the importance of pulling through innovation from the UK value chain. The marketplace was an opportunity for large companies, venture capitalists, the UK MoD and the military to see presentations and demonstrations of the technologies that have been developed under two UKDSC sponsored Innovation Challenge competitions; “Persistent Surveillance from the Air” and “Agile Immersive Mission Training”. The event was a great success with an attendance of almost 200 people.
Details on the companies involved and links to their presentations can be found on the CDE website here.
