Accessing SMEs to accelerate innovation in the Royal Navy

Agile Acquisition & Rapid Delivery
Traditionally, procurement in defence has an absence of interaction with innovative startups and SMEs. Programmes like the ASW Spearhead aim to disrupt this procurement status quo, a particular example of this is Project CETUS. Through discussion with the Royal Navy, Submarine Delivery Agency, Future Capability Group and representatives from innovative industry segments we will examine how SMEs can be harnessed to aid defence and how defence can better work with industry.
