Williams Advanced Engineering is working with the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) to develop innovative battlefield shelter protection for troops using Formula One-derived technology and processes created in-house at Williams to create composite 3D structures that can be deployed in theatre.
The company has developed patent-pending composite technologies and processes enabling the creation of strong, protective but lightweight structures.
Williams sees huge potential in implementing its proprietary composite technology in the DASA ‘Take Cover’ competition. This competition calls for innovative approaches to battlefield protective structures and is the company’s first submission and successful bid to DASA. Williams believes that its proposal will enable the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to become a leader in implementing advanced composite materials across all of its operational activities using a British-born innovation.
