AMD secures UK Defence and Security Accelerator funding

AMD, the commercial enterprise to fund programmes of development and related research in materials nanotechnology, has announced their success in applying for funding via the UK Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA), in the field of 'signature management'.

The contract, worth £83,000, is one of a series of proposals funded by DASA. It is an early stage nine-month R&D project using AMDs proprietary nanomaterial liquid processing technology for signature management applications in both civilian and military fields. The programme is part of the Open Call for Emerging Innovations.

John Lee, Founder and CEO of AMD, said: "This very exciting award is a highly supportive move to utilising AMD’s advanced liquid processing expertise in the field of metasurfaces applications for protection of both military and civilian personnel and assets. It is an acknowledgement of the highly innovative work being undertaken by our leading team of Material Scientists at the University of Sussex."

AMD is also currently engaged with a number of leading global businesses developing material applications for the commercial and environmental challenges faced in industries such as automotive, packaging and retail.
