Can you help with innovative solutions for screening vehicles at airport checkpoints? A Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is looking to make changes in aviation security.
This competition is part of a wider range of activities being carried out by the Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme, which is a joint Department for Transport and Home Office initiative. The FASS programme is investing £25.5 million over a 5 year period to promote innovation to improve aviation security.
VCPs play a vital role in the functioning of airports. All airport vehicles must be security screened before being authorised to access the secure airside perimeter. VCPs screen a wide variety of vehicles on a daily basis, carrying goods which are vital for airports to operate. For example, VCPs need to screen catering, aviation fuel deliveries, air cargo and maintenance goods. The screening of vehicles and their loads takes place using a variety of methods, such as explosive trace detection, x-ray screening and manual searches.

The competition closes on 20 September 2018.
There is no formal launch for the event but a WebEx will be held on 1 August 2018. Register here to participate.
There is also the opportunity for one to one telecom session here.
