The new Innovative Research Call (IRC) 2023 for Explosives and Weapons Detection will be launched on the 11th July at Birmingham Conference & Events Centre . The £2.9 million IRC Competition aims to develop detection technologies and processes that provide innovative and reliable capability against a significant proportion of current explosives and weapons threats.

UK Government, our international allies, and security end-users across the private and public sector have a broad range of operational requirements. While there is already a range of excellent equipment and capable solutions commercially available and in service, there remains an enduring requirement to develop and enhance our capabilities – to stay ahead of the threat and keep pace with the rapid rate of change.

About the event

The in-person event will allow attendees to learn about the competition, eligibility criteria and our priorities. The day will also allow you to learn more about our broad range of operational requirements and this year’s topics of interest; screening of Buildings and Areas, Goods, People and/or their Possessions and Vehicles.

Ticket can be reserved here.
