The UK Defence Solutions Centre (UKDSC) and British Defence Staff – United States (BDS-US) are collaborating on an initiative to develop and apply an intelligence-led approach to assess US defence technology needs and identify opportunities for UK Industry in the US defence market.

This project has identified some potential opportunities in several key technology areas, and, in the first phase of the assessment, they have selected the following technology areas as a proof-of-concept:

  • Autonomy
  • Sensors
  • Data Management & Analytics

It is intended that this will be the first in a series of such webinars, almost certainly to be held on the monthly basis, which will then cover each of the above three capability areas in much further detail. Dates TBC.

This initial webinar will include:

  • Overview of the US Defence market
  • Findings of a market intelligence assessment with a focus on market scope and opportunities in autonomy, sensors, and data management & analytics.
  • Discussion of market potential

Representatives from BDS-US will participate from Washington DC, and be prepared to take questions from participants on specific opportunities or issues related to the US market.

This webinar is part of the broader UK Government-led Prosperity Agenda to provide proactive support to UK companies to enable them to identify and pursue potential new export business opportunities.
