Supporting the new UK South East Regional Defence & Security Cluster

We are proud to join with our defence industry colleagues as part of the new UK South East Region Defence and Security Cluster, which is laying the foundations for further collaboration between industry, universities, the UK Ministry of Defence and the MoD’s Defence and Security Accelerator. This initiative aims to help drive innovation into the defence and security industries, and support regional businesses to grow through doing so.

In order to better understand the capabilities of the region, the Cluster’s steering group recently hosted a ‘SME Voice’ event, where member organisations presented to primes, universities and representatives from the MoD. At this event our Chief Commercial Officer, Laurence Mallinson, was delighted to share insights into our business and the value we can offer partners in innovation and delivery.

Evolve Dynamics’ CEO Mike Dewhirst commented:

“We are proud to stand with our defence and security industry colleagues across the South East region as part of this new initiative, which will foster collaboration and accelerate the delivery of innovation and technology from SMEs, such as Evolve Dynamics, towards the hands of end users. We look forward to building on our existing experience of working with DASA to support development of cutting-edge technology in aviation for application in defence and security contexts.”
