As a result of a competition, which was successfully won by a consortium of BAE Systems Avionics Group, Thales Defence UK Ltd., Roke Manor Research and Filtronic Plc., the second Defence Technology Centre (DTC) to be established by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) through the Defence Science Technology Laboratory (DSTL) has been launched.

The electro-magnetic remote sensing (EMRS) DTC will operate for the next three years and will deploy £15 M of research funding over that period, which will be matched by the defence industry partners.

Commenting on the initiative, John Roulston, technical director with BAE Systems Avionics Group and chairman of the EMRS DTC supervisory board, said, "BAE Systems Avionics Group is delighted to be formally launching the DTC in collaboration with our research partners."

He continued, "The creation of the EMRS DTC is a reflection of a modern policy for research which will lead to growing collaboration between the UK defence industry, SME and academia for the mutual benefit of all partners."
