A new £10 million jointly funded project between government and industry will back the best new technologies and research that can have a “dual use” in defence and civil sector businesses.
According to the Dual Use Technology Exploitation (DUTE) cluster, it will help boost growth by linking UK manufacturers, particularly SMEs, from the civil and defence sectors to draw on the best technologies of both to deliver game-changing solutions for customers. It is expected to create more than 140 jobs and safeguard a further 190 jobs across 15 partners up to 2019.
DUTE has been created as an output from the Defence Growth Partnership’s Value Chain Competitiveness Team which is chaired by Steve Fitz-Gerald, Chief Executive Officer, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group. Marshall has led the 15 partner cluster, supported by Axillium Research, which includes SMEs, Mid-Tier and Primes from industry working alongside Academic institutions.
The 15 partners involved in DUTE are Marshall Aerospace & Defence Group, Saietta Group, Airbus Helicopters, Cranfield University, C-Tech Innovation, Haydale Composite Solutions, Horsebridge Network Systems, KS Composites, NetComposites, Pro2Pro, Rinicom, SHD Composites, Sheffield Hallam University, TWI and XeraCarb.
