Improving Crowd Resilience
Following the 2017 terror attacks in Manchester and London, the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) and the Home Office’s Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT) initiated the £2 million “Improving Crowd Resilience” competition to seek innovative ideas to reduce the threat from terrorist and malicious use of explosives and weapons in public spaces. The capabilities and systems funded have been designed to be used in crowded places by private sector companies who operate and manage many of our public spaces and transport locations.
DASA is keen to ensure that private sector operators are provided the opportunity to hear more from the successful suppliers and hosted an invitation only briefing on 29th November 2018 at the International Security Expo.
This briefing was held on the 29th November 2018, 13:30-16:00 in Henley 1
